News & Notes November 26, 2012

I have another week yet of vacation here in The Land of Enchantment and The City Different.  Loving every minute of it.  I hear it's getting cold back home.

What would you do with Powerball's $425 million?

Congratulations to Sari Stevens, Executive Director of Planned Parenthood.  PoliticsPA named her one of the state's top political operatives this morning.  PAC Board member Mary Isenhour also made the list.

The artificial "fiscal cliff" was created by Republicans who held the country hostage last year in return for approving paying the debt they created.  Now the rich are holding programs critical to everyone else hostage to their massive tax cuts.  Meanwhile the deficit is being reduced faster than at any time since WW II.

ALEC is at it again, this time attempting to hijack global warming initiatives on the state level.  This after Superstorm sandy gave the east coast a wake up call.  So far damages from the storm are estimated at about $150 billion.  How many more such disasters are we to shoulder before we realize the cost of doing nothing is higher than the economic cost of acting now?  Explain to those who died in the storm that jobs were more important.  A lot of good those jobs are for them now that they're dead.

Black Friday saw protests against Wal-Mart across the nation.  Yesterday 112 workers at a Wal-Mart supplier in Bangladesh died in a fire reminiscent of the infamous Triangle Shirtwaist Fire.

The election debacle of 2010, when Pennsylvania Democrats refused to vote, is still haunting us.  Because the GOP gained complete control in Harrisburg that year they gerrymandered Congressional districts (with help from incumbent Democrats in Congress).  Now, even though more Pennsylvanians voted for Democratic Congressional candidates this month Republicans hold 13 of 18 seats.

Special elections need to be scheduled to fill two State House seats.  Matt Smith was elected to the Senate and Eugene DePasquale to Auditor General.

Occupy held a Hurricane Sandy cleanup in New Jersey Saturday.
