Re: “Stumping for congressional candidate Conor Lamb, former Vice President Joe Biden discusses future for young people

Lamb stands up for Pa's working families and so is endorsed by unions fighting for better wages & healthcare. Saccone supported cuts to Medicaid in PA which disabled veterans depend on; so what can we expect from Saccone if he goes to DC? More PA families would lose healthcare and jobs as Saccone has repeatedly voted against working families and is contemptuous of employees organizing for the benefits he received as a member of the PA legislature. Saccone repeatedly voted to allow the use of foreign steel instead of American steel in our public construction projects. Saccone voted against PA's organized workers including our miners and steelworkers. Like the GOP big donor lackey Toomey, who voted to cut Medicaid and to raid the US treasury to give the wealthy massive kickbacks, Saccone also claims he has no such plans, "I have not advocated, I never would, cutting Social Security or Medicare" while every so called healthcare bill GOP lawmakers recently voted for would cut Medicaid, increase the number of uninsured Pennsylvanians and raise healthcare costs. Ryan, McConnel, Toomey and Saccone's attacks on working families, Medicaid, Social Security and Medicare will only get worse if we don't defeat Saccone. As a nurse, I agree with Conor Lamb who said, Its time for Mr. Saccone to stand up and say he opposes the $250-billion dollar cut to Medicare that is in President Trumps budget right now but whatever Saccone says his voting record shows Saccone is Not on the side of PA working families and as a nurse I would never trust Saccone with the health of my family.

Re: “Beware of a fake poll circulating about the special election for Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District

Timothy Blumenthal admits to "making up a poll in 15 minutes?" If nothing else, that demonstrates the political motivations and complete lack of integrity of the whole Democrat polling machinery. They're trying to drive us like sheep towards the Democrats. Da-- them!

Re: “Democratic Socialist Kareem Kandil seeking Pennsylvania state house seat in suburban Pittsburgh

If he's for signal payer healthcare then we know he is not a sellout political whore like Biden and Trump. We don't need fascists light or fascists extreme, we need anti-fascism if we are to save ourselves from the polices state that will be imposed on us over time as the super rich protect themselves and their power structure and trample the people. These assholes forgot who the serve. Now it's time to punish the establishment and alt right. We need progressives. JDR was elected 4 times and died in office as the greatest president ever. Bernie could have been a JDR. Maybe he will be. A democratic socialist loved by the people. Why do we have sacks of shit to choose from like Hillary or Trump. Garbage people who can't do anything for the people. Bankrupt with black empty eye like those of a shark when they are eating you. Progressives is the only way we will fix the nations failures.

Re: “In North Fayette, President Donald Trump touts tax cuts in speech on the economy

This is the problem with the Republican party, they're always looking to the past instead of the future. Unfortunately, most of the people voting for them feel the same way so they don't mind it.

Re: “These Pennsylvania Congressmen disregarded their own national-debt concerns with tax-bill vote

Please write article on debt before Obama took office, and what it was when he left. Thanks in advance.

Re: “State rep. candidate Emily Skopov wants Daryl Metcalfe out of committee chair seat

It was like watching a bad SNL skit. He should be demoted.

Re: “State rep. candidate Emily Skopov wants Daryl Metcalfe out of committee chair seat

I wrote a letter to the editor that Metcalfe should be demoted. It was like watching an SNL skit!

Re: “Some of Pittsburgh’s Republican suburbs are turning blue

We in suburban Pittsburgh and all over the country have become much more politically active and aware. Toomey and Murphy have totally abandoned us in their pursuit of Republican Draconian policy. Thank God we're done with Murphy. The blue wave will continue. The Orange Moron has embarrassed us and taken us back to the 1900s. We will not go back!!! #PERSIST #RESIST

Re: “Some of Pittsburgh’s Republican suburbs are turning blue

Democrat Allyson Minton won a seat on the North Allegheny school board. It is believed that she is the first to do so.

Re: “Decoding state Rep. Daryl Metcalfe’s far-right messaging targeting Pittsburgh City Paper

Pennsylvanians could rid themselves of public officials who prefer to fight the public if the Commonwealth could be persuaded to scrap the electronic election fraud systems and count actual ballots in full view.

Re: “U.S. Rep. Keith Rothfus is the reason it will be harder to take on big banks

As a constituent of his district, PA12, I suggest to Rep. Rothfus that taking away the rights of individuals is no way to govern. He was also one of 16 Representative who voted against disaster relief assistance to TX, FL and PR. He needs to be unseated in 2018.

Re: “Angry constituents work over Pittsburgh-area Pa. Rep Daryl Metcalfe on social media after anti-Labor Day diatribe

Metcalfe is human garbage. It's such a shame that the district is so red that he won't be gone until he decides to leave on his own. I fear that even a felony conviction couldn't get him out of the seat.

That said, please, please do better at proofreading these articles. It makes us all look bad when there are multiple glaring grammatical errors that make it to publication.
