 the violence, addicts our children, and makes us look pathetic and helpless… Do it one by one,

 Civil Rights (U.S., foreign countries):

 Economy: Gingrich frames his economic policy using a five-point plan.
 Education (vouchers, testing): "As part of his conservative stance, Newt Gingrich aims to

the very tough issue of abortion: emergency contraception can reduce the number of abortions and
unwanted pregnancies. That’s what we should emphasize.”
Same Sex/GLBT: “I don’t support gay marriage, but I also don’t support a constitutional

   Capital Punishment:
   Civil Rights (U.S., foreign countries):
   Crime & Drugs:
   Economy: Jobs and the economy continue to be a threat to all of Pennsylvania. Part of the solution is
to explore ways to take advantage of our gas resources which we can use to diversify and expand our
existing industrial base while also serving our residential needs.
    Education (vouchers, testing): We must address all aspects of education funding from elementary
to post-secondary. As a start, it is imperative that we address the pension issue for school employees, as well
as other state workers. We must change from the archaic defined benefit plan to a 401K type of defined
contribution plan.

   Taxes (on the Wealthy): We must also address the heavy tax burden which makes Pennsylvania the
least business friendly state in the country. The direct answer to the latter is to lower business taxes and
eliminate intrusive government regulation. The way to control taxation is to control expenses which we have
not been doing in Pennsylvania for at least the last decade.

    Capital Punishment:
    Civil Rights (U.S., foreign countries):
    Crime & Drugs:
    Economy: I do not support Act 13. Mr. Yaw has not only supported but apparently helped
    write the legislation that will destroy jobs in the area. This area, from what I understand, has not had representation on the
state Marcellus Shale Commission while Lycoming County has two. How can this happen when there are more well sites
here than there are in Lycoming County? Where is Mr. Yaw in helping you with hearing YOUR voice in Harrisburg? I'm not
oversimplifying as I realize we all parties have to be responsible, financially & otherwise BUT... jobs have already started to
leave as a result of this Act 13. It also placed county commissioners in a no win situation, forcing them to play the game.
Whatever happened to letting our local people, who know the situation better than any state people, make decisions locally?
This couldn't have happened at a worse time with natural gas prices so low that the impact fee (adding more to the cost of
doing business) is causing them to leave for places like Ohio. Fee is just another word for "tax" by the way.
