 PAYCHECK PROTECTION ACTION ALERT! No more taxpayer $ to collect union dues!

The Paycheck Protection Rally sponsored by AFP last Wednesday was a great success!  Over 400 taxpaying patriots (including 19 on our own bus) crowded the rotunda to cheer on courageous legislators like State Senators Eichelberger and Wagner and Representatives Cutler and Metcalfe (chief proponents of these bills) and activists Jenn Stefano and Michele Malkin.  All called for fairness and an end to the taxpayer subsidy of the public sector unions’ political activites through the government processing of union dues from paychecks.  Why should government workers funnel union dues to private organizations that spend 80% of that money to promote one party?  Why don’t they collect their own dues like every other organization?  Why are unions exempt from strictly enforced laws that forbid the use of taxpayer money for promoting either party?
The Paycheck Protection Act bills (SB 1034, HB 1507) have momentum and could pass IF enough pressure is brought to bear on those holding up the process in the State Senate.  We MUST counter the flood of letters and calls from the teachers union with our own tsunami. This is our best opportunity to weaken the influence of the public sector unions on Harrisburg, for their funds will drop if they have to collect dues on their own – that is why they will fight so hard and why we must fight harder!!
 
The House is ready to pass this bill.  Reps. Metcalfe and Cutler say the bill definitely has the votes in the House.  In Metcalfe’s State Govt Committee, all Republicans except for Barrar are co-sponsors, as is the House Majority leader Rep. Turzai.  Justin Simmons was not a co-sponsor for fear of union opposition to his re-election until patriots on our AFP bus  from his area pressed him to stand on his principles – he is now a Co-sponsor!!! 
The Senate is the problem.  Four of the seven State Govt Committee Republicans are NOT co-sponsors on the bill, including the Chair, Smucker.  Neither is State Sen. Pileggi, the Senate Majority Leader.  The Senate Majority Whip, Pat Browne, told our folks that he would in no way support it. Key Republican opponents of this bill are State Senators Greenleaf, Tomlinson, and Erickson from the southeast.
 
PLEASE ACT NOW AND ENLIST OTHERS TO CALL, WRITE, OR VISIT legislators.
  1. Your State Representative and State Senator – ask/thank for support and co-sponsoring the bill
  2. Senate Republican leaders:  Pileggi, Browne –  ask for support and move it to floor vote
  3. Key Republican opponents from Southeast PA:  Greenleaf, Tomlinson, Erickson – support the taxpayers, not special interests
  4. Chairman Smucker of the Senate State Government Committee that is holding the bill up – support and move out of committee
  5. Senate State Govt (GOP) Committee members who are NOT co-sponsoring:  Scarnati, Corman, McIlhinney – support and co-sponsor!
  6. Call House State Govt Chair Metcalfe and co-sponsors on both Senate and House State Govt Committees to thank them

Tell them we are not opposed to unions but this is an issue of fairness and improper use of taxpayer money to fund political activities. If they say they support the bill but are not co-sponsoring, ask them to co-sponsor to prove their commitment to the interest of taxpayers, not special interests.  Ask committee members and leadership to bring bills out of committee for a vote.

This link will connect you to information regarding a speech to be given by Dr. Duke Pesta about the dangers of Common Core curriculum.  It will be presented on Saturday, March 29, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. at the Kulpsville Firehouse, Kulpsville, PA.  Admission is $10.00.  This is being sent to you because you have expressed a desire to learn more about Common Core curriculum, or because you have children or grandchildren whom you care about, or because you care about the future of our nation and society, in general.  This curriculum is being implemented in many states NOW, not only in government schools, but in private and religious schools, as well.  Textbook producers (including some Christian textbook producers) are amending the contents of their product to “comply” with the mandates of this federal (and ultimately, globalist) curriculum.  All children, including homeschoolers, will have to demonstrate “mastery” of this information to progress educationally, and ultimately, in any kind of upwardly mobile lifestyle, in the United States.
