Which of the following health care reform policies do you support?

Constituent Feedback

“Everyone should be able to benefit from good health care.” – Jane from Lititz

“We need to reduce obvious corruption between medical care facilities, pharmacies, and insurance companies.” – Victoria from Manheim

“Anything that will lower the cost of medications would be welcome to all seniors on Medicare.” – Eugene from Mount Joy

“We need more price transparency for every treatment, intervention, and procedure; inform customers of costs prior to services.” – Todd from Lititz

“If you want to lower Medicaid costs, housing assistance, heating assistance, etc., you do that by keeping people healthy FIRST, so they don’t get severely ill and need expensive treatments that wouldn’t have been necessary if they could have seen a doctor early or been able to afford their medication.” – Barbara from Lancaster

October 2022 Student Loan Debt Survey Results


Constituent Feedback

“Institutions have used govt funding to hire unnecessary bureaucrats and raise tuition. Make them responsible.” – David from Elizabethtown

“The interest rates that accompany the loans do even more harm. The interest rate for my gov loans was over 6% while I was paying. Higher than my mortgage rate, car loans and even some credit lines.” – Jenn from Lititz

“Higher education has been positioned as a the only means of making more money. This was… at best a lie.” – Justin from Lancaster

“We need state regulations against massive out-sized college administrative salaries. Increasingly running colleges like for-profit businesses with massive administrative executive staffs, overhead, and expenses has turned education away from its main mission of making education available, affordable, and high quality.” – Eugene from Lancaster

“I support a multi-pronged approach. To only give relief to those who have already graduated is to ignore the system which created the problem in the first place and set up others for failure.” – Rebekah from Lititz

“Accrued interest charges at high rates have been the biggest driver of the existing debt problem. Forgiveness should be limited to refunding all past interest, leaving borrowed principal in place to be repaid at zero interest.” – Steve from Lititz

“I strongly believe in paying back a student loan obligation.” – Edward from Lancaster

“Forgive the interest on people making their payments.” – Dana from Lancaster

“Reduce the interest rate on the balance that is still owed.” – JoAnn from Lititz

“Accountability for programs and outcomes is important, of course. Accreditation is one vehicle for that. But providing adequate state funding would do wonders for many of our institutions of higher education (and public education, as well).” – Matthew from Elizabethtown

“All student loans should be 0% interest while the student is in full time studies.” – Jim from Ephrata

“Forgiving student debt – and I would submit that even the discussion about it – rewards and encourages behavior that we don’t want!” – Lori from Elizabethtown

August 2022 PA Energy Policy Survey Results

Pennsylvania is blessed with a diverse mix of energy sources that not only power our state’s economy and create high-paying jobs for our residents, but also position our Commonwealth to export our excess energy to power other states as well. Our state is home to natural gas, coal, nuclear energy, hydroelectric, solar, wind, and more, all of which contribute in their own way to our way of life in Pennsylvania. At the same time, many cite a negative impact on our environment as reason to pivot away from certain energy sources in favor of newer, “green” sources.

Considering the significant impact of the energy sector on our Commonwealth and its residents, please choose as many of the following energy-related policies that are important to you:


Constituent Feedback

The most important issue to me is improving the electric grid.” – James from Mountville

Nuclear must be part of our future reduced carbon energy generation plans.” – Scott from Lancaster

Something needs to be done about the rising costs of electricity.” – Kim from Landisville

We need to invest in a variety of energy sources. Fossil fuels are not enough. Add wind and solar.” – David from Lititz

There may be a role for fossil fuels in the long term, although it should be somewhat limited if we have any aspirations about creating an environment that supports life for generations to come.” – Joan from Quarryville

All of these energy issues are necessary, as energy is not a one size fits all approach. All types of energy contribute to the success of PA and those that call PA home. We need to be responsible stewards for the resources we’ve been given!” – Amy from Lititz
