Pennsylvania Primary


Barrack Obama is making inroads into the election process in the keystone state. For those of you over there in Pa. stop to remember some of the things that Ronald Reagan did back in the 80's. Breaking the air traffic controllers union and weakening others. The republicans made it easy for companys to send your jobs over seas. Hillary Clinton stood behind NAFTA that was to promote free trade. What the nation really needed at the time was legislation that promoted fair trade. Then there's the issue of health care. If Hillary has her way your wages will be garnished if you can't afford to pay the premiums for her plan. Imagine you're right at that middle ground where you don't qualify for subsidized health care from the state but can barely make it on your salary only to have what you do make garnished and I'll bet the program won't even cover everything leaving you with a bill you can't pay. We're seeing how well this is working in Mass. with Mitt's program. And you wonder why the population of Pa. has been in decline for the last 20 plus years. Hey I think we still have a sign left over from the late 70's you can borrow. You may recall.
