"I hit the ground running in my first year, challenging the status quo, demanding accountability and championing reforms and policies that foster a thriving economy.  With only six months under my belt, I joined 14 of my colleagues this summer, crafting an alternative budget plan that didn't tax or borrow.  In the end only a portion of our plan was incorporated, but we were able to shine a light on $42 billion dollars of spending that takes place outside of Pennsylvania's $32 billion general fund budget.  Our group has grown and our mission has evolved with an agenda and an action plan to tackle budget cost drivers such as welfare, implement accountability and transparency mechanisms for all government spending, reform our education landscape to exclude the current one-size-fits-all methodology that's been failing our students, and reining in PA's hostile and ever-growing regulatory activity facilitated by unelected bureaucrats.  As a small business owner, I know what it takes to operate a business and to work within a budget.  I remain steadfast in my commitment to solving Pennsylvania's challenges using my experience and common sense - and not the taxpayer's wallet."

Separation of Powers Becoming a Blurred Line

The separation of powers clauses laid out in our state and national constitutions is meant to ensure one section of government, whether it be the executive, legislative or judicial branch, doesn’t become too powerful and infringe on the rights of the people. These separations protect our democratic system and uphold our free society.

We must have checks and balances if we want a government that works for the people. As John Adams, our second president, said, “I say, that power must never be trusted without a check.”

Of late, however, the thin line that separates the three branches of state government have sadly become blurred with one branch overstepping its border and infringing on the powers held by another branch.
We have recently experienced in Pennsylvania two clear examples of branches of government overstepping the legal boundaries and blurring the lines that separate the powers.
