  • The weasel fiddles while Rome burns! | “The House of Representatives voted to roll back some of the main regulations contained in the 2010 Dodd-Frank law, implemented after the 2008 financial crisis. It was an almost perfect party-line vote, 233-186. Among members who voted on the legislation, all 185 Democrats were opposed and all but one Republican was in favor.”  – The New York Times
  • In his own words ‘Since the start of the 115th Congress, I have spoken with several financial advisers from the 16th congressional district and heard their concerns in order to gain a better understanding of how the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank ; P.L. 111-203) has impacted the financial services sector.’ (Recieved (sic) in an emai (sic) regarding H.R. 10, the Financial Choice Act.). This man is making legislative decisions on behalf of the 800,000 constituents he serves based on conversation with ‘several financial advisers.’ If he wanted to understand the depth of an investment managers ability to deceive his clients to support legislation that protects the people of the 16th, then the Congressman should have spent his time speaking with CPA’s and auditors not the entities that the legislation is trying to regulate.” – This is a comment following the LNP – Always Lancaster pucker article for the elected public servant – Rep. Smucker’s amendment included in bill to change Dodd-Frank regulations.”
  • For the insensitive only| This is taken from another letter to the editor in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster: This is not a medical problem. It’s a habit and a self-inflicted illness that I’m tired of having my tax dollars pay to help.[NOTE: And what about the self-inflicted medical problems created by tobacco; alcohol; greasy cheesesteaks, burgers & fries; diet cokes, etc.?]
  • From the POLICE LOG in LNP – Always Lancaster: “DUI – MOUNT JOY: Donald L. Atticks, 46, of 727 Kames Hill Road, Columbia, was charged after his vehicle was observed swerving May 28 in the 800 block of West Main Street, police said.”
