Education Access Now Piggy Bank

Education Access Now Piggy Bank

By Leo Knepper

The Education Access Program (EAP) budget item has increased by nearly 600 percent since the 2014-2015 budget cycle. Initially, the EAP had a $3.95 million budget. It grew to over $23 million last year. If you dig into it a little, you’ll find that the funds from the Program have been requested and spent on projects mainly to benefit Senate Democrats. In some cases, the funds go to school districts directly, but the majority of the funds have gone to support organizations like: The Philadelphia Clef Club of Jazz and Performing Arts, The Bryn Mawr Film Institute, and The Pittsburgh Opera.

Private individuals making donations to charitable organizations is a vital part of civil society. When government forces taxpayers to support particular organizations, that is another matter entirely. Lawmakers’ ability to present giant cardboard checks to local charities is a pernicious part of the “incumbent protection” program designed to make it harder to dislodge elected officials once they are elected to office. Furthermore, over the course of recent history, we have seen members of the General Assembly direct tax-dollars to “charities” that directly benefited them financially, or organizations that were run by their campaign contributors.

Beyond the problems associated with doling out tax dollars to favored charities for good public relations, sending funds to school districts via the EAP is never a one-time deal. One of the quirks in how Pennsylvania funds school districts is a “hold harmless” provision. Essentially, the amount of money sent to a school district from state taxpayers cannot be decreased. In other words, the payments from the EAP to school districts will always be included in the “Basic Education Funding” the school receives from the Commonwealth. A $10,000 grant automatically turns into an additional $10,000 included in the next year’s (and the next, etc.) baseline funding.

Despite an insistence almost every year that the state budget is “cut to the bone,” questionable spending through the EAP and other programs illustrates that that is not the case. Too many members of the General Assembly confuse wants and needs when it comes to spending tax dollars. As we move through the budget process, our elected officials would be wise to take a closer look at where our money is actually going.

Mr. Knepper is executive director of Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania.

Kuru William Lawrence Sr Omnibit 6-13-18

Kuru, a once common disease on New Guinea, caused its last death in either 2005 or 2009. Ending the epidemic simply required the natives to stop eating the brains of their deceased loved ones.

The disease was spread by prions acquired by eating human brains.

MD-80 dangerous William Lawrence Sr Omnibit 6-11-18

Is the MD-80 dangerous? The McDonnell Douglas jetliner has been involved in crashes causing 1,1446 deaths since it first flew in 1979. Pretty scary, until you realize it’s competitors the Boeing 737 and the Airbus A320 had crashes involving 4,862 and 1,393 deaths respectively. The 737 first flew in 1966 and the A320 in 1987. Did you know that there is a half-million people in the air at any one time?

Was Reggie Up In Polls Before Pro Life Fed Backstab?

Was Reggie Up In Polls Before Pro Life Fed Backstab?Was Reggie Up In Polls Before Pro Life Fed Backstab? — John Haenn’s June 4 interview with Dr. John Huyette regarding the 165th Pennsylvania House District Republican Primary is available as a podcast and can be accessed below.

Haenn hosts WFYL’s Our Time radio show. Huyette reveals to him that non-endorsed challenger Regina Scheerer was likely ahead in the polls until incumbent Alex Charlton radically changed his position regarding abortion — or claimed to anyway — and received an opportune endorsement from the opportunistic Pennsylvania Pro Life Federation.

Huyette also reveals that Mrs. Scheerer had campaigned with Charlton in 2016.
