November 2016, Republicans took 34 seats in our Pennsylvania Senate, giving them a SUPERMAJORITY.
Why is this important?
It means that Pennsylvania Republican Senators can pass laws without needing a single Democrat’s vote.
If that doesn’t scare you, it should. Here are some recent bills that have passed:
SB383: Allows Pennsylvania public school workers to bring guns onto school grounds.
SB3: Bans abortion after 20 weeks leaving no exceptions for rape, incest, health or tragic fetal anomalies.
We are fortunate to have a Democratic Governor in Tom Wolf because he has veto power. BUT…guess what?
A supermajority can overturn a governor’s veto.
You heard me right. The GOP has 34 of 50 Senate seats, which represents more than two-thirds,… and a two-thirds vote from the Senate and House is required to overturn a governor’s veto.
Every election matters. We need your VOTE. We need your HELP.
