A Quick Look at Bob Brady's 2011 FEC Reports

Normally I stay out of Philadelphia politics. When I was going over the quarterly FEC reports for the collar counties I dipped into the reports for Philadelphia’s congressional representatives. A few things surprised me so I’ve done a little more digging. Here are some observations on the reports from 1st district Congressman Bob Brady’s campaign, from the post-general 2010 election, year end 2010, first, second, and third quarter 2011 reports. To provide some context, I found a Dec. 20, 2010 article by Brad Bumstead and Mike Wereschagin in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, ...

Statewide Primaries Get Steamy

The big question is will we get a Democrat candidate from Eastern Pennsylvania or Western Pennsylvania in the high-stakes Attorney General race? The next two questions automatically follow. Will either Dan McCaffery or former Congressman Pat Murphy or Lackawanna’s Kathleen Kane get the nomination when the Democrat State Committee meets Jan. 14 to decide?

Congressman Brady Pushes for Vote to Extend Unemployment Insurance
Washington, DC – Congressman Brady released a statement today in response to the continued refusal by Republicans to bring a vote to extend emergency unemployment insurance (UI).  The expiration of the federal UI program has now cut off two million men and women looking for work and will kick off 72,000 more each week that an extension is not issued. "It is simply unacceptable that we are still waiting for a vote to extend emergency unemployment insurance for the millions who need it," Congressman Brady stated. "I strongly urge my colleagues on the other side of the aisle to allow us to vote on this important issue, giving countless Americans the lifeline they need to pay their bills and support their families while searching for work." The unemployment insurance program, which expired on December 28th, is not only critical for families and workers but also beneficial to our economy. The Joint Economic Committee Democrats report, "The Economic Case for Continuing Federal Unemploym
