Issues

Campaign themes

Merisotis' website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Eliminate Property Tax

  • Excerpt:"Government should not have the power to levy or raise taxes or increase spending at a rate beyond inflation and population growth without the citizens’ approval."

Legislator’s Pensions

  • Excerpt:"Ernie supports part time pay to match a part time legislature. This, along with no pension, provides for a “citizen legislature.” Ernie’s personal pledge to you, the taxpayer is to not accept a Legislator’s pension."

School Choice

  • Excerpt:"Parents are best suited to choose the school that most fits their children’s academic needs. Tax dollars should follow children to their choice, be it public or private."

No ObamaCare for Pennsylvania

  • Excerpt:"State legislators must act immediately to overturn the already harmful effects of ObamaCare. Government interference is the largest contributing factor to the high cost of healthcare today. Individuals should be able to purchase whatever level of health insurance they need."

Protect the 2nd Amendment

  • Excerpt:"Self-defense is a fundamental right. The right to carry firearms for that self-defense is recognized by the U.S. Constitution and the constitutions of 44 of the 50 states in this nation."

Pension Reform

  • Excerpt:"All future ­state, county, local government and public employees should be enrolled in a Defined-Contribution** pension plan like a 401K – just as in the private sector."

Make PA a Right to Work State

  • Excerpt:"Employees should be able to decide if they want union representation or not. Dues, fees and forced political campaign contributions should be eliminated for those employees."
