The LuLac Edition #2240, October 23rd, 2012

United States Senator Bob Casey. 


Last 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.”
120th District State Representative Phyllis Mundy and 17th District Congressional candidate Matt Cartwright. 


Matt Cartwright and State Representative Phyllis Mundy will host a Get Out the Vote Rally on Tuesday, October 30th from 6 to 8 PM. The event will be at the West Wyoming Hose Company No. 1 at 926 Shoemaker Ave in West Wyoming. The event is free and will feature food and refreshments. For more information, please call 570.371.3870 . 


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." 
Phil Scollo left Wall Street to start a small business in Northeastern Pennsylvania. He learned hard work and public service early from a New York City Fire Fighter, his father. His business, a management-consulting firm, has served all types of organizations from global corporations to small businesses and government agencies. Phil has lived in Dingman Township, Pennsylvania since 1998 with his wife, Karen. He is the proud father of three children. A summa cum laude graduate of St. John’s University, Phil holds a B.S. in Government and Politics.

Tough Mormon guy Tag Romney got tagged out for a stupid macho remark and had to apologize to the President. Way to go, Tag. Dad must be so proud of you! And I bet you throw one hell of a punch.

OK, this is easy ... Bill Gates does not need medicare and for a second, neither does Mitt Romeny. You can also add Marino to thatlist because of his great Conressional benefits.

It continually baffles me the way the media is pretty much ignoring all of the major issues in this years campaign. When each of the three Pres. Debates ended the talk was not of the issues discussed but the style of the candidates. NO question it is the media’s mission to dumb down Americans---and they are doing a great job of it.

Who would have believed twenty years ago that a leading Presidential candidate would be in favor of butchering Medicare and Social Security, eliminating mortgage deductions for millions of everyday Americans, provide even more tax cuts for the rich, promise to balance the budget with no real specifics WOULD BE LEADING IN THE POLLS??????

Of course as Yonk pointed out, Marino wants to butcher Medicare and Social Security, along with Lou Bareletta. Twenty years ago in a campaign these two would be butchered by the electorate. Anyone remember Jim Nelligan????????

So, in the end it looks like the two upstart freshman butchers will get another term and the CEO of Bain will be our next President.

Only three words to add to this horrific fact:

Good Luck America!!!!!

God Bless You All.

Mike Washo is just as big a BANDIT as Bob Cordaro. Only difference is he has found a legal way to get away with it. Really pisses me off because I once respected this phoney! "Mister I am not a politician/Family Values" has all the attributes of same. What we get for public servants around here is I guess what we deserve for electing these people. Look at the choices offered and its clear there is no choice at all. The employees of the Parking Authority who showed up for work dont get a dime and Washo a self proclaimned "Man of the People" cashes in big. So much for Public Service. So much for bullshit, Mike. Youre just as bad as the rest of em. Greed is whats wrong with this County and this Country.
Get what you can from the City Mike before it goes down. I think you have gotten enough for your service!

Pissed Off and Fed Up

What would happen if Ann Coulter and Donald Trump bred? The thought is disgusting but I bet Lulacers could come up with some good ideas!
Man could we do without those two and any potential evil hairy offspring.
Something to think about this evening...

Mitt Romney will not be president. Not this year, not in four years, not in eight years, not ever.

I always find it interesting when people say someone needs something,as if that is the sole requirement for obtaining it.
Just because seniors need medical care it is not the repsonsiblity of the government to provide it.
There was a time when people in this country where proud to provide for themseleves and their families, now they are proud to hold out their hands.

Washo is almost in a league with Cordaro, Cassidy in that he is a big phoney whose accomplishments in office amounted to zero. Lackawanna County hasnt had a good County Commissioner in many years and the results demonstrate that fact. The Commissioners office is a joke and should be abolished. Before it was about outright stealing it was about jobs and lesser kickbacks! Its an excellent paying opportunity to do little or in the case of one current officeholder attempt to springboard to higher office. We all saw how that worked out. Its a dead end for power hungry freeloaders who ultimately go nowhere except jail in the worst cases. Its too bad but a shinning example of bad local government. I agree completely with your sentiments and your disgust!
