Pennsylvania Open For Business


I've heard that Steyer wants to help the Democratic challenger, Tom Wolf, here in Pennsylvania, but I'm not really seeing it. For one thing, Wolf doesn't seem to need his help beating Gov. Corbett, the incumbent. Beyond that, it seems that it would backfire since voters, especially outside of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, would mostly be resentful of a California billionaire sticking his moneyed nose into our state's business.

Not sure of the motivation in Rhode Island, but I do know what is going on in states like Texas (See Judge Ramos' opinion) and Pennsylvania (Republican house leader in 2012: "Voter ID [passed] check. Now Romney will carry Pennsylvania) and North Carolina (in a bill where precincts were moved to make students at a black college to travel miles to vote, where early voting was curtailed, where errors in voting in the wrong precinct cancelled your vote. Anyone who thinks there is a good faith, benign purpose in instituting these requirements is either blind or has their eyes closed.

One of my first restaurants I ate at as a naive sales rep visiting from mid-Pennsylvania (late 70's). Amazed at something called schmaltz, "why that is just plain old chicken fat!" We had the vodka in ice and the steak was monstrous and tasted wonderful. And the customers exemplified all the New Yorkers I met over my 30 years visiting this great city. I am somewhat surprised they are still in business. Must visit again.

Here we go. Before the week is over, companies will be extending this to other health care issues like ED, blood transfusions, AIDS medication, and on and on. Crackpot business owners are going to have a field day and soon companies will also be choosing the doctors and hospitals you can go to. The floodgates will open; they will most surely open.
