  1. Understandable, given increased costs for prison overcrowding, the heroin problem, pensions, health care and landfill operations.
  2. Disappointing, considering our landfill has been making money for years and it doesn't appear any personnel cuts are planned.
  3. Hopefully not a done deal, and the next month will be spend re-examining what can be done to prevent a tax increase.
  1. Nothing. President Obama is not willing to compromise on his own agenda, which is the wrong direction for the country.
  2. Nothing. The Republican majority is not willing to the meeting President Obama halfway on his policies, make sense.
  3. Plenty. History shows that much program can occur when the president and the House and Senate majorities represent different.
  4. It's hard to tell how much can be accomplished because President Obama's ideas are so far to the left that it will be nearly impossible to gain consensus with the House and Senate, even if the attitude is one of compromise.
  1. No, I wasn't moved by any of the candidates and their promises, which I am skeptical they could keep.
  2. Yes, I believe in the system, and was hopeful my vote would help bring about the government I desire.
  1. Yes, the problem is being heavily overblown and, despite some missteps, I believe the Center for Disease Control will get the situation under control before it mushrooms into an epidemic.
  2. No, the CDC has shown remarkable miscalculations with the monitoring and handling of cases to date, so there's no reason to have confidence they can keep the ebola situation from worsening.
  3. I can forgive some of the mistakes to date, but I don't understand why they don't simply prohibit flights out of South Africa, the point of origin, to this country.
  1. Yes, incumbents become too entrenched in the power and trappings of Washington, become too partisan and lose sight of who they are representing - their constituents.
  2. No, the system is fine the way it is set up. The problem is in its politicized execution, with a Senate majority leader blocking House legislation and a president bad-mouthing rather than working with Congress.
  1. Yes, selective air strikes to weaken the terrorist group's capabilities while enlisting a regional and European coalition is the best approach
  2. No, the only solution is a complete air campaign in Syria and Iraq where ISIS exists, followed by ground troops finishing the job of destroying them before they come after Europe and the United States.
  3. Unfortunately, by making believe ISIS does not exist for the past two years, there is no approach the administration can take. It's too late.
  1. It's about time. The NCAA had no business penalizing current Penn State players and coaches over a child sex abuse scandal because that is a criminal matter best left exclusively to the courts.
  2. The penalities should have remained. Penn State's leaders failed to address adequately, for several years, a sexual predator affiliated with the program and allowed to roam the campus.
  1. Yes, he was too soft in his initial reactions and penalties in the cases, diminishing his belated efforts to handle these critical issues, sullying the league he is supposed to guide.
  2. No, he made his mistakes, but let's give him a chance to execute the changes and policies he plans to implement.
  1. Yes, I vote in every election.
  2. Yes, this particular election is important and has my attention for the offices at state.
  3. No, I have lost faith in my elected officials.
  4. No, I am not intrigued by these races or the candidates involved.
  1. Public education funding plans
  2. Handling of the future state pension funding problems
  3. New job creation
  4. Ability to cut the size of state government and the budget
  1. Yes, this is a wise expenditure in return for a viable pool of city police candidates.
  2. No, the city should not be in the business of paying job training costs for anyone.
  1. It's an example of police mistreatment of black people in this country.
  2. it's an example of how race-baiting and media slants create unrest in this country and steer the country's interests away from the actual facts in the matter.
  3. It's testament that we have not reached the point in this country where we can wait for actual facts to be uncovered when there is a white-black tragedy.
  1. Similar to what the Obama administration is doing, selective strikes against the Islamic State, humanitarian aid, and airlift rescures of Christians who are under siege.
  2. We don't belong there at all. It's a situation beyond our control.
  3. We withdrew too quickly and completely, and now we are paying the price, an emboldened terroristic, barbaric threat whose goal is to establish themselves in the Mideast and then come after the United States. That threat must be expunged with a full attack
  1. All of it. I look forward to it every year.
  2. Some of it, whenever the schedule allows.
  3. None of it, just not in my plans.
  1. No, they are allowed and capable of handling such activities while addressing serious issues affecting the country.
  2. Yes, its distasteful and indicates a president, no matter who it is, is tone-deaf to the realities affecting the country.
  3. It depends on the seriousness and complexity of the event. In this case the fundraising appearance should have been canceled.
  1. It resolves nothing because it did not address the state's looming pension crisis and privatization of the liquor system, which could have raised needed revenues.
  2. It's a fair budget with no tax increases at a time when the state's revenues are lagging.
  3. It's didn't need to be late. All it needed was a gas severance tax to raise more revenue.
  1. $4 a gallon.
  2. $4.50 a gallon.
  3. $5 a gallon.
  4. None. All of my car uses are either necessary or it is just not something I will do without. I will find other means to save money if I need to.
