Thanks to Macellus Shale, natural gas prices decline

An early Christmas present for Pennsylvania residents who heat their homes with natural gas. The Reading, Pa.-based UGI Utilities Inc. – Gas Division announced Wednesday that their customers' purchased gas cost rates will decrease on Dec.1 due to lower wholesale natural gas costs.

As a result, an average residential heating customer’s bill is estimated to decrease approximately 4.7 percent, from $90.05 to $85.77 per month, the company said in a press release.

"Thanks in part to increasing availability of supplies of Pennsylvania-produced Marcellus and Utica Shale gas, UGI is pleased to be able to reduce purchased gas costs for our customers,” said UGI Utilities Vice President of Rates Paul Szykman. "This cost reduction is an added benefit to customers as we enter the winter heating season."

Take that, Pennsylvania Gov.-elect Tom Wolf, who promised to raise taxes on the natural gas industry.

Name change: Pennsylvania drops 'welfare' from Welfare Dept. to avoid stigma

The Department of Welfare has dropped "welfare" from its moniker because the term welfare offends the many millions who receive welfare and the bureaucrats who administer the billions of dollars in welfare payments. So from now on, it's the Department of Human Services, which is still the place to go for welfare.By the way, Pennsylvania spends about $11 billion annually on welfare programs.

Another pay raise for the Pennsylvania House of Lords

The median household income in Pennsylvania is $52,000, but thanks to automatic pay raises they gave themselves since 1995, Pennsylvania state legislators now get a base salary $85,356, plus  unlimited expense vouchers, plus Cadillac health plan, plus free car and gas, plus lifetime pensions.

The House of Lords is actually located in Harrisburg, not London.

Democrat Tom Wolf Bought and Paid For by Big Labor

Pennsylvania taxpayers will be taking a backseat over the next four years. If there was any doubt in your mind that Pennsylvania Democratic Gov.-Elect Tom Wolf is a puppet of Big Labor, consider this:
FOUR TOP WOLF DONORS WERE GOVERNMENT UNIONS
Government unions pumped more than $7 million directly to political candidates across Pennsylvania — including $2.7 million given to Gov.-Elect Tom Wolf — and at least $1.6 million in election-related TV ads.
The most recent campaign finance reports show seven Pennsylvania government unions gave $7.2 million in campaign contributions in 2013-2014. That's up from the $4.7 million during the last election cycle.
Topping the list were PSEA: $3,037,756; SEIU: $2,119,312; AFSCME: $1,178,197; and UFCW: $385,179. Government unions funneled an additional $1.6 million to Pennsylvania "SuperPACs" like PA Families First, which ran several TV ads in support of Wolf.

Sen. Toomey Blasts Obama Amnesty Order

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) released the follow statement about President Obama’s executive action on immigration:
"I strongly oppose the President’s latest overreach of his legal authority and his decision to dictate sweeping immigration policy changes without legislation. America’s immigration system is badly broken and cries out for reform, including stronger border security and adequate opportunities for legal immigration. Regrettably, President Obama's unilateral and legally unauthorized actions will do nothing to fix our broken system, and could encourage even more illegal immigration."   

Congressman Pitts' Comments on Obama Immigration Order

WASHINGTON — Congressman Joe Pitts (PA-16) released the following statement on President Obama’s executive order on immigration policy:
"The President said repeatedly in the last few years that he was not a 'king.' However, tonight he took action outside the laws Congress set to govern immigration policy.

"This isn’t just going around Congress, it's going around the American people, who just spoke in the 2014 elections. This isn't a long-term solution and it puts up a substantial barrier to getting such an agreement during the President's remaining years in office."

Congressman Gerlach Statement on Obama Amnesty for Illegals

WASHINGTON - Congressman Jim Gerlach (PA-6th District) issued the following statement on Thursday after President Obama announced that he would bypass Congress, ignore the American people and test the Constitutional limits of his executive authority in granting amnesty to 5 million people who illegally entered the United States:
"The President's hubris is alarming and he's once again demonstrated utter disregard for the legislative process that protects the rights of American people to have a voice in how our country is governed. The first reform necessary for improving our flawed immigration system is securing our border, not rewarding those who broke the law by granting them executive amnesty. My staff has helped countless hard-working families seeking a better life in the United States who have obeyed the law, obtained legal status and, in many cases, waited several years for their loved ones to legally enter our country. The President's abuse of executive power will let about 5 million people skip the line ahead of these law-abiding families. That's wrong."
