Communication Focus Group
Your Voice and Opinions are powerful. As a voter you enjoy more persuasive ability to influence a member of Congress than a lobbyist in Washington, It is not ONLY your right, but your duty to make contact with your legislatures
Orderly Transfer Of Power
Since many of us may be separated from our high school history classes by a number of years, a short reference to the bedrock of our government, the Constitution, might be helpful.

President Biden's Agenda
Infrastructure & Jobs Act
Passed with bipartisan support. How did your representatives vote?
Senator Bob Casey voted YES
Senator Pat Toomey voted NO
Representative Reschenthaler voted NO
What this Bill will do for Pennsylvanians
$11.3 billion for roads and highways and $1.6 billion for bridge repair and replacement
$2.8 billion for public transportation
replacement of the 160,000 lead service lines in Pennsylvania
$171 million to expand electric vehicle charging networks
Expand broadband internet
More than $3 billion for abandoned mine reclamation
What does this mean for you and your family?
The 2018 Report Card for Pennsylvania's infrastructure gave the Commonwealth an overall grade of C-, which reflects that PA has some of the worst roads and bridges in the country. This bill will help repair more than 3,300 structurally-deficient bridges and over 7,540 miles of highway in poor condition.
This bill will also expand broadband internet to the more than 390,000 Pennsylvanians who lack access-meaning more kids can do their homework and more families can stay connected.

Letter of the Week
The Cost We Pay for Questionable Relationships....
We recently learned that Trump has lost $70 million on the Trump International Hotel. In 2018, Deutsche Bank gave him a six-year deferral on payment of a $170 million loan for that same hotel. In 2017, the state of New York and the UK won a $630 million lawsuit against Deutsche Bank for laundering Russian money. Under Obama, the federal government started their own lawsuit; it was estimated that the fine could top $1 billion. But under Trump, it was settled for $85 million in 2018. Was there a quid pro quo?
Trump and many of his associates have had quite a few such questionable relationships with Deutsche Bank. Just look at the three amigos: Wilbur Ross, the king of bankruptcies, Donald Trump, the king of fraud and lawsuits, and Steven Mnuchin, the king of foreclosures. These three form the trifecta of questionable behavior. If their actions are not criminal, they should be. Each has robbed people, not with a gun but with a fountain pen. We need to reform our laws involving bankruptcies, market manipulation, foundations and tax exemptions. These are some of the ways the 0.1% steal from the rest of us
