Pennsylvania Welfare Reform Bills Before Wolf — We got the below email, yesterday, from Nathan Benefield at Commonwealth Foundation:
Great news! Late last night (Oct. 17), the General Assembly sent two game-changing welfare reform bills to Governor Wolf’s desk! The Senate passed Rep. Matt Dowling’s HB 2138 (30-19) and the House passed Sen. Mike Regan’s SB 6 (124-62).
Thank you to the representatives and senators that voted for this legislation!
HB 2138 will help healthy, childless adults enrolled in Medicaid move from dependency to self-sufficiency through work or volunteer requirements. Similar reforms to food stamp programs in Kansas and Maine had incredible results: Beneficiaries saw their incomes more than double.
Exactly one year before this vote, we published a groundbreaking report on work requirements by our welfare policy expert, Elizabeth Stelle. This research was cited countless times by lawmakers supporting the bill, and we are proud that the work we’ve put in this past year—and long before—can help pave a path to prosperity for thousands of our fellow Pennsylvanians.
The second bill, SB 6, protects the integrity of the welfare system by addressing waste and abuse. SB 6 limits benefits for drug felons and non-compliant sex offenders, and increases penalties for welfare fraud, amongst other reforms.
If Gov. Wolf wants to help hundreds of thousands of able-bodied Pennsylvanians overcome generational poverty and protect the welfare system for those who need it most, he should sign these bills immediately.
We’re so glad to have your support as we continue advocating for reforms that offer everyone the opportunity for independence.
When Commonwealth Foundation celebrates we all should. We are not holding our breath, though, about Wolf signing those bills.
Hopefully Scott Wagner can make something of it.

Military Sleeping Trick Puts You Under in 2 Minutes — Having trouble sleeping? A method used by the U.S. military can reportedly help you fall asleep in 120 seconds, and has a 96 percent success rate after six weeks of practice.
1. Clear your mind. Of everything. This my be tricky the first time you try it, but it’s essential for getting to sleep quickly. This should take about a minute and a half to clear your mind, especially at first, and is the preparation before the 120 second technique can begin.
To clear your mind, you can first relax your face muscles, including your tongue, jaw, eye socket muscles. Drop your shoulders as low as they’ll go, and relax your upper and lower arm on one side and then the other. Start breathing slowly and relax your chest Finally, relax your legs, including your thighs and your calves.
2. After trying to clear your mind, try and picture of three mental images:
a.floating in a canoe on a serene lake with only a clear blue sky above you
b. Lying in a black velvet hammock in a pitch-black room,
c. Slowly saying “don’t think, don’t think” for 10 seconds.
After doing these techniques you should be drifting off to sleep.

The Aral Sea was once the world’s fourth largest lake in the world. The Soviet socialists, however, managed to destroy it. The eastern part is now called the Aralkum Desert. Socialism is bad for the environment.

It requires one pound of dried navy beans (unsoaked, that’s important, unsoaked albeit you should rinse them), a cup of chopped ham ( bonus if you got a bone), one diced onion, one chopped small carrot and two packets of chicken bullion.
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a gallon pot, and sauté the carrot, onion and ham until the veggies are soft. Add the beans and the bone if you have one and fill the pot. Season generously with salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Add the bullion and then let simmer for a few hours until the beans are soft. It’s even better the next day.
Sandwiches make a good side but we had fried green tomatoes as the tomatoes are still being found in our garden.
We made the tradition coating of flour, egg and breadcrumbs with salt and pepper added to the flour. We fried them in butter.
