  1. “Observer” isn’t just wrong about CITY Council. Matt Drozd has never voted on anything related to ObamaCare. Matt Drozd IS a great conservative leader!

  2. Matt Drozd a conservative? The ONLY Republican on City Council who voted with the Democrats to push the state to expand ObamaCare in PA? Really, a great conservative leader? What a joke.
