This law will also ensure The United States maintains and advances its scientific and technological edge.  This bill was passed with bipartisan support.

VOTE NO ON NORWIN PUBLIC LIBRARY REFERENDUM
TO DEFUND OUR LIBRARY
ON THE NOVEMBER 8TH BALLOT

The Norwin Public library has served our community for 85 years. A group of shortsighted individuals have succeeded in getting a referendum on the November 8th ballot that would reduce funding to the library by 85%. This one mill is less than $3 per month per household and if funding is eliminated the services they now offer to all residents of our community would end. In fact, the library would not be able to survive.

PA Senate Bill 106

Changing PA's Constitution

Our Republican-controlled legislature is ready to amend the state constitution to take away privacy protections for abortion and to undermine state election laws. The most egregious aspects of Senate Bill 106

  • A declaration that our state constitution does not grant "any other right relating to abortion." Republicans to ban all abortions in the state, potentially without exceptions for rape, incest, or the life of the mother.

  • Constitutional amendments to state election law under SB 106 include voter ID requirements, election audits (at taxpayer expense), and eliminating the people's choice of our PA lieutenant governor. Election fraud in PA is rare (less than 0.00002% of votes cast). The proposed amendments are a Republican "solution" in search of a problem.

Letter of the Week

Taking Care of the Middle Class....

President Biden is deservedly receiving praise for his landmark bill, The Inflation Reduction Act, Trib., 8/17/22. From the historic climate change policy to the improvements in health care, to the minimum tax on large corporations and stepped-up IRS enforcements of wealthy individuals, this bill is a win for average Americans. Finally, after the Reagan, Bush, Trump tax cuts for Big Corporations and Big Money, which has left the top 1% of U.S. earners holding more wealth than all of the middle class, main street has a President that is putting the middle class ahead of the donor class.

The bill does not include everything that President Biden wanted, and that we need, but this is how democracy works. People compromise. We hammer out our differences to come to a consensus. But compromise is clearly lacking in the GOP. Not one Republican voted for this bill. Not one. This highlights the strangle-hold the party apparatus has over its members. Legislators

voted not for the good of their constituents but how they must, to stay in good grace with their political party which controls the money for campaigning.

Because of past GOP tax cuts, $50 trillion of wealth has transferred from middle America to the top 1%. If your legislator voted against the Inflation Reduction Act for Trump's tax cuts for the wealthy, VOTE THEM OUT.
