  1. $10000 per kill. Nobody cares how much this costs. Drop more bombs on these terroists. This is why we pay taxes. And for less funding because of Trump and it will hurt lancaster county. Another thing that doesn’t benefit me one way or another. He the President and probably the best one we will ever have. So live with it. What we need to cut in Lancaster county is some of the dead weight programs we don’t need.
