SIGN THE PETITION TO END GERRYMANDERING IN PA

from Fair Districts PA; sign the petition here:

The United States is the only major democracy that allows politicians to choose their voters by drawing electoral district lines. This is a conflict of interest that undermines the integrity of our elections.

There is a solution—and our legislators have the power to do something about it: Enact House Bill 722 and Senate Bill 22! These bipartisan redistricting reform bills are designed to stop gerrymandering in PA by putting an independent citizens commission in charge of redistricting.

By any measure, Pennsylvania is one of the most gerrymandered states in the country. We are ALL harmed by lack of choice at the polls and an unresponsive, unaccountable legislature.

Until we fix this structural flaw in our electoral process, our votes won’t count and our legislators will continue to pay more attention to outside interests than to the people of Pennsylvania.

Sign the petition now to ask your legislators to support these bills. Then share it with your family, friends and networks.

Wolf’s administration released the approved 2018 rates Monday, saying the average increase will be just over 30 percent. The administration says the increase would’ve been less than 8 percent if Trump hadn’t halted cost-sharing reduction payments to insurers or created uncertainty around the fate of the individual mandate.

In a statement, Wolf accused Congress of being complicit in the rate increases because it didn’t appropriate the cost-sharing reduction payments that Trump is ending….
