PA dems against the people- surprised? Updated

Pa Attorney General Corbett signed on to the multi-state lawsuit against Obomneycare and now state Dems are threatening the funding for the AG office. It would be funny if it wasn’t so pathetic.

Pennsylvania Democratic

lawmakers threaten to cut

funding to attorney

general’s office if Tom Corbett pursues lawsuit against federal health care bill

PLEASE! Give me a break! I have become perhaps overly cynical since the DNC appointed their puppet- (though they learned about appointing instead of electing from the Repubs) but do any of these lawmakers really care about the people?? Does Corbett really believe this?

Corbett said the health care law imposes an unconstitutional mandate requiring citizens to purchase health insurance.

“Congress does not have the constitutional authority to enact this requirement,” Corbett said. “This law threatens every citizen’s individual liberties.”

The Dems claim Pa could lose millions now and billions later “If the lawsuit you are contemplating is successful…” (Do I detect a faint fear that the lawsuit may actually succeed? GOOD!)

Or is all of this merely political games? Corbett IS running for governor here in PA. Will he cave and claim the Dems made him do it? And try to claim he was a hero stopped by the forces of evil? And the Dems can claim they stopped the forces of evil??

Told you- I have gotten cynical.

So will it surprise you that I have written and called Corbett’s office to let him know I want him to continue on and not let the Dems make him back down? See if he will actually stand! Hold him to it! I also e-mailed my local rep and let her know I want her to stand up and support Corbett on this issue.

I heard somewhere that another state’s Dims are pulling the same trick- so I guess I know what Axelrove is doing now. If anybody knows which states- let’s get those communities “organized” as well.


Which way do I go????

Well, the Pa state Democratic Party machine endorsed the turncoat Specter. Now what? I am certainly not voting for him! Changed parties because he was afraid he couldn’t win re-election as a Republican. Mind you, as far as I know this is not the first party switch for the old fart. I could put in a bunch of clichés, but why bother? I think he made a huge mistake given the results of recent races in other states- the Dems are not so popular right now- and people are sick of Specter anyway.

So- what are the choices??? Here is the list I found at Politics1


Arlen Specter (D)* – (Campaign Site)
Michael Lamb (D) – Pittsburgh City Controller

Mike Mentzer (D) – HVAC Contractor & Navy Veteran
Joe Sestak (D) – Congressman & Retired Navy Admiral
Joe Vodvarka (D) – Machinist & ’04 Candidate
Wendell Banks (R) – Minister & Frequent Candidate
John Kensinger (R) – Pharmacist & ’01/’02 US Rep. Candidate
Peg Luksik (R) – Conservative Activist, Businesswoman & Frequent Candidate
Larry Murphy (R) – Businessman
Pat Toomey (R) – Ex-Congressman, Club for Growth President, Businessman & ’04 Candidate
Robert Townsend (R) – Retired Police Officer & Navy Veteran
Mike Yilit (Indep. American) – Pastoral Degree Student & Construction Worker

I noticed there is ONE woman running- but I went and looked at her web page- she is anti-choice- so not for me. What’s left? Men with the same old, same old. I haven’t had time to look through them all- but not holding out hope for finding anything new. About all I know at this point is I am NOT voting for Specter.

There is a LOT going on in PA this cycle- but again- no female candidate for Governor. There are two women, one Dem, one Rep running for Lt. Gov.

Am I specifically looking for female candidates? You bet I am! I am sick to death of government run by the men, for the men. If I can’t find a woman to back, then I will look at the males, but all bets are off. If I can not find a candidate who will represent me- then I just won’t vote. I am not going to settle or as Uppity Woman says- “hold my nose.”

As some of you may know- I live on the main drag in and out of our little town. Hence I get pleas every election cycle for space for signs. I ran off the Democratic Party co-coordinator who wanted to take my Hillary signs and replace them with signs for the appointed one.  Right now I am considering putting up a hand-made sign expressing my discontent, anger, disgust, fury at the system that discounts our wishes and takes our votes for granted.
