  • Governor Corbett: if you care about PA, fully fund education
    The future of a state, country, etc is based on the strong education of its citizens. Mr. Corbett is proposing to cut education funding by 50 %, so cutting the future of the state of Pennsylvania by 50 % or more (as educational deficits have exponential damaging consequences: higher poverty, crime, health risks, etc). Mr. Corbett must fund education 100% or more, if necessary, by taxing gas and other industries in PA.

  • End pensions for elected officials
    In order to help reduce costs, federal and state elected officials should not be entitled to a pension or health care after they leave office. They can participate in a 401K while in office to save for retirement. Hopefully, elected officials will understand how the majority of Americans plan for retirement.

  • Ohio legislators should be treated as public employees
    By the definition set up by state legislators themselves, Ohio state legislators are not considered public employees and thus are not subjected to the effects of much of the legislation they push through (i.e. SB 5). In fact, they are public employees and should not be able to make rules for themselves as they see fit. They should not be able to purchase nor receive service credit for work not done, and they should be subjected to the same increased payments and decreased entitlements for retirement that they establish for public employees.

  • Build DC Solar--Don't Let Green Power Die
    The future of solar power in DC is on the chopping block. The fledgling solar community and green businesses in Washington need your help. PEPCO is getting their renewable credits (SRECs) from outside of DC instead of from clean energy on the grid right here in DC--including more solar panels. The impact has been devastating--threatening to shutter green businesses, kill jobs and make it too expensive to put solar on more rooftops in DC. But a good bill currently under consideration in the DC Council will change that--requiring PEPCO to use homegrown renewable power at no additional cost to taxpayers. The bill would make it possible for solar to become more affordable too. Unfortunately the bill has been stalled for more than a month without any action while these green businesses contemplate cutbacks. We urge the DC City Council to pass the Distributed Generation Amendment Act of 2011 to help put more solar on the rooftops of our nation's capital. Please sign the petition and they will be delivered to all of the members of the DC City Council. Please SIGN the petition and tell your friends. Post it to Facebook after you sign too.
