3/24 Ups & Downs

An actual town hall meeting, candidates staying away from contentious issues, and candidates getting kicked off the ballot.  See who made this week’s Ups & Downs!

Up-Arrow4-2 Scott Perry.  Congressman Scott Perry (R-York) is one of few Republicans to hold an in-person town hall.  Many Republicans in the state have faced criticism for not facing voters in town halls since the start of the year.  Some have done tele-townhalls, but have not gone face-to-face with the voters in their districts in a pre-scheduled town hall.  Perry stood in front of the crowd and took his lumps.  

 

 

Down Arrow

 

Seth Williams.  The Philadelphia District Attorney was indicted this week on federal corruption charges.  

 

 

Up-Arrow4-2

 

Dave Reed.  By continuing to dodge questions about his plans for 2018, Majority Leader Dave Reed (R-Indiana) has been able to keep clean from the contentious issues like the AHCA.  

 

 

Down Arrow

 

AHCA.  The American Health Care Act has had up to 37 Republicans come out against it, including three from Pennsylvania.  This has pushed back the vote on the bill despite Trump and Ryan’s lobbying for the bill.

 

 

Down Arrow

 

Christopher Pez.  Christopher Pez, the Allentown Mayoral candidate, was kicked off the ballot after it was revealed that 17 of his signatures were from outside of Allentown, putting him below the 100 signatures required.  

 

 

Down Arrow197th District Voters.  The voters of the 197th House district have been without representation for months after the second representative in a row was indicted and had to resign.  Problems with the Democratic candidate caused them to be kicked off the ballot, leading to only one name on the ballot, who got fewer than 200 votes.  The voters won’t know until later this morning who will be their representative.  It is hard to remember a district with this many problems all at once.  Hopefully it is over by the end of today.

    Where are all the idiots that swore that Seth would never be indicted?

    bungy? I’m talkin’ to you …

  3. gulag Pittsburgh says:

    Vince Philips, what? The GOP lied? No, no I tell you. I am shocked.

  4. vince phillips says:

    Re the 197th district, I think it shows that the Department of State needs to think about content. I checked on Friday and DOS website listed GOP candidate Little as the winner. It mentioned the write-in votes but said they were scattered. Today I see that Democrat Vasquez is the winner because of those write-in votes. Perhaps DOS should have said “Write-in vote count pending’ so as to not give the wrong impression as to an election outcome. Give the PA Department of State a down arrow.

  5. gulag Pittsburgh says:

    John, Barletta blames immigrants for everything, so you are right. He’ll probably blame them for being bused into DC to cast 3 million votes in the House against ACHA. Immigrant bashing is all Barletta knows.

  6. Bono says:

    Trump, Ryan & Price deserve a down arrow for the melt-down of their AHCA. The ACA lives another day!!

  7. John says:

    How does Barletta get an up vote? The so called change he negotiated to the AHCA ism nothing but window dressing. Barletta’s amendment would ensure that undocumented immigrants would not receive tax credits to buy taxpayer subsidized insurance. But undocumented immigrants are NOT even eligible to BUY such insurance So they have precious little need for tax credits to help them do so. Unless Barletta plans to first make the undocumented eligible for subsidized health care coverage, which I doubt, Barletta’s amendment is therefore frivolous and pointless. It is a CYOA political maneuver with the additional benefit to Barletta of bashing immigrants again. Guarantee you if Barletta finds himself walking the political plank in 2018 he’ll blame immigrants again.

  8. Bucks Barrister says:

    How does Scott Perry get an up arrow after his statement at the town hall that GOD will solve the environmental problems of the Chesapeake Bay. Sounds and smells more like a steamed crab left out in the sun for a week. Seriously??
