Top 1% of US taxpayers pay as much as the entire bottom 95%

In case you were dumb enough to fall for Obama's line that the rich aren't paying their "fare share," here's proof that the top 1% of income earners pay as much in federal income taxes as the bottom 95%. Feeling pretty stupid? You probably should have stayed home on Election Day.

The top 1% of US taxpayers pay almost as much in federal income taxes as the entire bottom 95%, and half of that bottom group paid no taxes at all in 2010

Ironic: Teacher pension funds invest in gun makers

Interesting that the people who supervise investments for the nation's massive teacher unions did not have a problem investing in gun manufacturers before the school massacre in Connecticut. Now they're scrambling to divest their portfolios.

From The Associated Press: 
For years, the gun industry has been a reliable investment, attracting tens of millions of dollars from some of the nation’s largest retirement funds. The firearms business has been strong, driven by relaxed laws for carrying concealed handguns and by buyers who feared that tighter gun restrictions were more likely under President Obama. 

But after the bloodbath in Connecticut, the practice is under review in at least four states, including two of the most populous, California and New York.
 I guess as long as the pension funds were returning a solid profit, it didn't matter where the money was placed? What say you liberals?

New Committee Chairmanships for Pennsylvania Senate

Sen. Joe Scarnati (R-25), president pro tempore of the Pennsylvania Senate, has announced committee chairmanship assignments for the Senate's 22 Senate Standing Committees.

"We are fortunate to have members from various backgrounds and regions across our Commonwealth who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to Harrisburg," Scarnati said. "Membership of committees will be announced prior to the reconvening of the Senate on January 22, 2013."

Columnist: It's not the 'gun culture,' it's the American culture

Excellent column by J.D. Mullane about the root causes of the evil that visited Sandy Hook, Conn., last Friday:
To see the Sandy Hook massacre as unique to its circumstances, apart from all the others, is to avoid an uncomfortable topic. What feeds and enables this madness is not the “gun culture.” It’s the American culture.

We’ve cheapened human life. We snuff it when it is helpless and inconvenient. In three states (so far) we legally euthanize it when it is old, infirm and a burden.

The cheapness of human life permeates our popular entertainment. With movies, television and song lyrics, nihilism is, literally, in the air.

Evil is glamorized. Check the thrill-kill video games “Modern Warfare,” “Resident Evil 6 — You Are Dead,” “Sleeping Dogs” or “TheWitcher 2.” The violence is barbaric.

Yet, on Dec. 25, millions of these games will be presented as gifts to young people who will play them on Christmas Day.

Who seriously argues that this stuff has little influence on attitudes and behaviors?

PA Rep. Schwartz: Gun control laws would have prevented Conn. school shootings

Here we go with the knee-jerk reaction of left-wing politicians.

Democratic Pennsylvania Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz: "We can work to prevent these situations from happening again by engaging in a serious conversation about the issue of gun violence in our country."

Schwartz is rumored to be a 2014 candidate for Pennsylvania governor.

Dear Rep. Schwartz: A depraved, mentally-disturbed person who would target innocent children is not going to be deterred by additional gun control laws.

The killer could have used  a knife or a bat or his hands to kill his victims.

The debate should be about how we treat the mentally ill in this country, not about guns.

Guest column: Obamacare Not Ready For Primetime

By Congressman Joe Pitts

It has been nearly 1,000 days since President Obama signed his health care bill into law. With the Supreme Court upholding much of the law earlier this year and the political situation in Washington staying the same following the election, the administration will have free reign to implement the President’s vision for health care.

I vigorously opposed the bill because I believed it would fail to deal with our biggest health care problem: rising costs. Indeed, the Congressional Budget Office could not back up the President’s claims that the bill would make health care less expensive in the foreseeable future. For many people, their premium is already going up.

This week, the Associated Press reported that insurers will be charging a new $63 fee in the coming year. When Obamacare was being considered this was just one of the many fees and charges hidden from consumers. Taxes will be assessed on insurers, medical device manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies but the real people footing the bill will be patients.

The taxes are all set to be collected, but Obamacare’s benefits aren’t quite ready for primetime yet. The centerpiece of the law is the establishment of health care exchanges in the 50 states. Exchanges could be a good idea, if they were truly an easy way for insurers to offer plans and for consumers to have real choices.

The law gives states a choice about whether to create and operate the insurance exchange within their borders. States can also choose to “partner” with the federal government to create an exchange or leave the responsibility completely up to Washington.

Republicans are typically the party that promotes federalism, so it may be initially confusing to find that many Republican governors have decided to let the federal government run the exchange in their state. In fact, this week Governor Tom Corbett announced that Pennsylvania would elect not to create a state-based exchange.

There are some fundamental problems that make it unwise for a state to create one of these exchanges on behalf of the federal government. First of all, the rules aren’t actually written yet. The Department of Health and Human Services avoided putting out any detailed regulations governing state-based exchanges until after the election.

Throughout this year, governors and other state officials from both parties and from across the country wrote detailed letters to Health and Human Services Secretary Sebelius asking for information. Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) and I also wrote the Secretary asking her to reply promptly. Some letters elicited no response and others were barely acknowledged. Important questions remain unanswered.

Secondly, even now, the guidance from HHS is not enough for states to determine how much it would cost to set up an exchange. These insurance marketplaces have to be up and running by September 30, 2013. With the rules still largely undefined, states would be starting a race without knowing what the track looks like or whether they have enough gasoline to get across the finish line.

Finally, even with the little guidance that is out there it is evident that states will not be in the driver seat. How these exchanges will be structured will be determined almost completely by bureaucrats in Washington.

At this time, only 14 states have elected to run their own exchange. Twenty-four states have decided to leave it up to the federal government. It makes perfect sense. The “choices” states will be able to make in setting up an exchange are largely illusory.

Because the federal government hasn’t been doing their job in providing guidance, states are reluctant to help share the burden. HHS did not anticipate running so many exchanges in so many states. The President’s health plan simply won’t work without these marketplaces. They will be the only way for individuals to reliably purchase insurance that meets government requirements and avoid new tax penalties. The clock is ticking, and there is no telling whether Obamacare will be ready.

U.S. Rep. Joe Pitts is a Republican who represents Pennsylvania's 16th Congressional District.

Surprise: New insurance fee in Obamacare hits U.S. workers in 2013

Breaking news from The Associated Press for all the idiots who voted for Obama: Your medical plan is facing an unexpected expense, so you probably are, too. It’s a new, $63-per-head fee to cushion the cost of covering people with pre-existing conditions under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. The charge, buried in a recent regulation, works out to tens of millions of dollars for the largest companies, employers say. Most of that is likely to be passed on to workers.

Pennsylvania Confronts $41B in Pension Deficits

Politicians make promises to labor unions in return for votes and campaign contributions, but the money to fund lifetime pensions for union retirees eventually runs out.

Watch Pennsylvania taxpayers get screwed again. It doesn't help that voters continue to return the same members of the permanent political class to Harrisburg every election.

From a report in Bloomberg by Romy Varghese:
Pennsylvania's two public pensions face a combined shortfall of $41 billion, and their costs will consume 62 percent of fiscal 2014 revenue growth, according to a report from the state budget office.
The State Employees’ Retirement System has 65 percent of assets needed to cover projected liabilities, and the Pennsylvania Public School Employees’ Retirement System is 69 percent funded, the report said. The plans cover 817,000 people.

Worse than fraud is the process that turned nearly 20,000 black Philadelphians -- and millions of inner-city dwellers throughout the country -- into automatons.  Hope does not produce this kind of regimentation.  Fear does.  In looking at these numbers, in fact, one can begin to see how, 34 years ago this Sunday, in the jungles of Guyana, Jim Jones was able to persuade 918 of his followers, most of them poor and black, to drink their lethal Kool-Aid. Fear can do that.

Pa. State Rep. Tom Quigley concedes loss to Democrat

One week after the polls closed, Republican Pennsylvania State Rep. Tom Quigley, who has represented the Pottstown/Limerick/Royersford areas of Montgomery County since 2005, has conceded in the 146th House District.

Quigley, a popular and highly-regarded state lawmaker, was upset by Democrat Mark Painter on Nov. 6. Since the margin was about 200 votes and absentee ballots were not counted, Quigley refused to concede the race.

But after absentee ballots were counted by Montgomery County officials on Friday, the gap remained about 200 votes. 

Quigley said he spoke to Painter earlier in the day in Harrisburg, where Painter was attending an orientation session for newly-elected legislators.

Quigley also issued the following statement:
In light of the completed count of all absentee ballots, it is clear that the people of the 146th District have spoken and they have elected Mark Painter as their next Representative. I saw Mark in Harrisburg today, shook hands, congratulated him and wished him well.

I would like to take this opportunity to say what a great privilege and pleasure it has been to represent the people of the 146th District. In the past eight years my staff and I have had the chance to meet and serve numerous people in our community. My district office staff; Karen, Joan and Veronika and my Harrisburg staff; Lauren, have provided outstanding service to the many people who have sought our help on numerous issues. I know I speak for them in saying that we will miss that daily interaction and the opportunity to truly make a difference in people's lives.

My district office will be closing at the end of November when my term officially ends. My staff will be contacting those with outstanding issues to direct them to the appropriate person.

Again, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the people of the 146th District for allowing me to serve as your representative.
Although he hasn't decided what he will do next, Quigley has not rule out a run for the state Legislature in 2014 to reclaim the 146th District seat.

A silent protest in Pa. over Voter ID?

I was in line with about 10 people waiting to cast my ballot today and almost everyone in line had their driver's licenses out and handed them to the polling officials. The people manning the polls did not ask to see an ID and there were signs outside the polling site saying "No Photo ID Required" and fliers inside the polling site with the same message. But almost everyone in line was willing to show a photo ID.

My take on the matter: A silent protest by Pennsylvania residents against the Democratic Party and its media allies who fought so hard to delay the state's common-sense Voter ID law for this election.

Polls show two-thirds of Pennsylvania residents support the state's Voter ID law.

By the way, with a photo ID to see the correct spelling of the person's name, the poll workers were able to find names quicker in the voter rolls and the line moved quickly. So much for the Democrats' claims that showing an ID would delay people voting.

Investor's Business Daily Endorses Romney For President

Investor's Business Daily, one of the nation's leading business publications, has endorsed Mitt Romney for president, saying Gov. Romney offers the leadership this country desperately needs afour four disappointing years under Barack Obama.

From the newspaper's endorsement editorial:
Because we have a president bent on radically changing America in ways few of us want, Tuesday's vote will be the most important most of us will ever cast. Fortunately, a challenger has stepped forward with the experience, capabilities and character to save the country at this time of peril.

The nation needs a president who understands how business works; enter Romney of Bain Capital. It needs someone who knows how to turn around a failing enterprise; enter Romney of the Olympics. It needs someone who can work across party lines to get things done; enter Romney the Republican governor of Massachusetts.

Of course, it's a big jump from Boston and Salt Lake to gridlocked Washington, or from private equity to the broken global economy. There's never anything quite as big as the presidency. But Romney is as ready as anyone could be. And if we've learned anything about him by now, it's that he has a way of rising to the occasion.
