CASEY GETS THE NODSLast week, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and Pennsylvania’s largest newspaper, the Philadelphia Inquirer, endorsed Bob Casey for Pennsylvania’s U.S Senate seat. Now, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Patriot-News have followed suit. The Tribune-Review writes that Bob has the “kind of personal comity that serves Pennsylvania and the nation best.” The Patriot-News says Bob is “a solid member of the U.S. Senate who seeks out ways to work with, and has the respect of, those on both sides of the political aisle” and the Post-Gazette agreed that Bob is a “centrist senator [that] can work with both parties” and applauded that Bob “worked to raise the minimum wage; argued for a higher tax on oil company profits; advocated ‘fair trade,’ not ‘free trade,’ to preserve U.S. jobs.”

FIND ME ONE……PLEASE!!!!!!!Recently in a Times-Tribune, Congressman tom Marino explained why he's voted twice to end the Medicare guarantee by turning it into a voucher program that would raise costs thousands of dollars a year on seniors. He said, "I've had numerous people say to me ... 'I don't need the Medicare.'" I dare the Congressman to find me one of those people. Don’t bring me someone you know from your days as Louie DeNaples go to guy, or some millionaire you and your party are indebted to. Find me a regular person who is just trying to get by. Bet you can’t do it!!! In a recent interview with the Scranton Times-Tribune, Congressman Tom Marino said he want to raise payroll taxes, increase the Social Security retirement age, and reduce Social Security benefits. His position on Social Security should come as no surprise because in 2010 he told a radio station that "My generation and probably the generation that follows me, we're going to have to step up to the plate and say, 'We're not going to get Social Security' ... It would have to be cut for my generation to pay for it." "From the start, this has been the biggest difference between me and Tom Marino. I just do not believe we should be cutting benefits people have worked their entire lives to earn," said businessman Phil Scollo. "The seniors I talk to can't afford the $6,000 in new health expenses they would incur because of Tom Marino's plan to privatize Medicare. Seniors, middle class families, they can expect to count on me as a staunch defender of Social Security and Medicare."
