Pension reform won't happen under Tom Wolf either. The teachers union is very very strong in Pennsylvania. Plus Democrats typically support unions.however if you look at Pennsylvania school budgets the teachers pension usually is about 60 to 70% of the whole school budget.
UPMC did miss the boat on this one, but I suppose they could have done nothing.
Do the employees(aside from nurses) at UPMC make minimum wage like a lot of other folks around Pittsburgh? Would be interesting to see what the average wage for non medical personnel.
Seems silly to challenge the hospital ballot. I think the only issue would be the "representative" punches/fills out the ballot rather than the actual voter. I would hope these would be honest, but in reality how could you really confirm these. (and it would allow for ballot stuffing either way.....)
will there come a point...where we could just vote online?? That would make things simple for people in hospitals. Hospitals could move a computer tablet around from patient to patient and they fill their demographic ids. (DOB/SSN/maybe a 3rd item) and then vote.
Also, I guess the incapacitated voter (i.e. someone who is in a coma/vegetable state) shouldn't be given a ballot....well they could be given one, but then it should remain blank.
Why are we funding groups that provide abortions overseas?
I could understand the government doing it here in the US. but do we have groups that are overseas that are providing abortions to non-US citizens?
