The LuLac Edition #3190, April 14th, 2016
Hillary doesn't take any crap from anyone.
Bernie is going after the banks, banks, banks. Wants to break them up. Does he not realize that Democrats work in banks, have retirement accounts in them and just saying that scares the bejesus out of the markets? And after he breaks up the banks, what happens to our money? He's not saying.
What is incredible is that Sanders drew 27,000 people in New York yesterday. Yu can't beat that with a stick.
I also wonder why Hillary Clinton just doesn't release those speeches. I don't care if she got a check for giving a speech. It hasn't influenced her votes.
I also am not a fan of the Roman Coliseum atmosphere of this debate with the various fans of the two whooping it up. This sure isn't Kennedy/Nixon.
Still it is something to chew over as we get closer to New York.
Our good friend Evie Refalko McNulty is cording a big event Wednesday night in Scranton for Hillary Clinton. The event is priced for every age group. The event starts at 6 at POSH. Click to enlarge, RSVP 570 335 2763 or e mail email@example.com.
NOTE: A voter may appear in person at the Bureau of Elections any time prior to the deadline to make application for a civilian absentee ballot. Voters may also hand deliver applications on behalf of other voters in the same way they may deliver an application to register to vote. However, the ballot itself may only be delivered to the voter himself or herself. In other words, if you are the applicant, you will receive only your ballot and not that of anyone else.
NOTE: A voter may appear in person at the Bureau of Elections any time prior to the deadline to deposit their own voted ballot into a ballot box for such purpose. On the day of the deadline, voters also have the option of placing the proper postage upon the voted absentee ballot and giving it to the postal worker at the public counter of the main branch of the post office on South Main Street, Wilkes-Barre. The postal worker will hand cancel the postage and hold it for a representative of the Bureau of Elections who will collect those voted absentee ballots for processing at 4:45 PM.
House Continuing Resolution 117, authored by Barletta, authorizes the use of U.S. Capitol Grounds for the 35thAnnual National Peace Officers Memorial Service and the National Honor Guard and Pipe Band Exhibition. The memorial service, sponsored by the Grand Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police and its auxiliary, will take place on Sunday, May 15, 2016. It will mark the beginning of “Police Week,” which is an annual event drawing as many as 40,000 law enforcement officers, their friends, and family to the nation’s capital. Five police officers from Pennsylvania lost their lives in 2015. H. Con. Res. 117 passed the House by unanimous consent.
“The sacrifices of our peace officers, and the sacrifices of their families, should not be forgotten,” Barletta said. “These officers risk their lives every day to protect our communities and their bravery and selfless services shall not be overlooked by a grateful nation.”
Barletta co-sponsored the Eric Williams Correctional Officer Protection Act, now a new law that supplies oleoresin capsicum spray, commonly known as pepper spray, to federal prison officers or employees who may respond to emergency situations with inmates. The legislation was named for Nanticoke native Eric Williams, an officer at the U.S. Prison at Canaan who was killed by an inmate in 2013.
Officer Williams was unarmed when he was attacked, allegedly by convicted gang assassin Jessie Con-ui, a member of the violent New Mexican Mafia gang, who already was serving an 11-year sentence at the time. Con-ui is charged with first-degree murder, first-degree murder of a U.S. corrections officer, and possessing contraband in prison. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
House Continuing Resolution 120, authored by Rep. Peter King, NY-2, authorizes the use of the U.S. Capitol grounds for the 3rd Annual Fallen Firefighters Congressional Flag Presentation Ceremony. H. Con. Res. 120 passed the House by unanimous consent.
“Our firefighters stand ready to respond at a moment’s notice to protect our property, our homes, and our lives, no matter the time of day, at great risk to themselves,” Barletta said. “These men and women are local heroes, and it is right that we take the time to honor those who have given their lives in the service of others.”
Barletta has been a longtime supporter of the Assistance for Firefighter Grants program, having made repeated requests to House Appropriations Committee leaders for continued support and funding. He has promoted the support of benefits for first responders, particularly those who directly suffered the effects of September 11, 2001. In addition, Barletta successfully led the fight to protect volunteer fire and emergency companies from the ravages of Obamacare, which could have caused many stations to close their doors because of financial burdens associated with the employer mandate provision. Under pressure from Barletta, the Internal Revenue Service changed its rule governing the employer mandate and specifically exempted firefighters from Obamacare, though Barletta continues to pursue legislation to formalize it in federal law. When embarking on one of his Main Street Tours of the 11th District, Barletta usually begins his visit with a stop at the local fire house. In 2014, the National Volunteer Fire Council named Barletta their Legislator of the Year.
