  1. Don’t Punish Pain. I am a chronic pain sufferer at age 35 and opioids are 100% effective against my chronic pain!! They are the only thing making my life tolerable. I can’t imagine the next 50 years in increasing agony.

    If you take it away from chronic pain patients then you will unfortunately cause the unintended consequence of increasing suicide rates in chronic pain patients in this country. You will be trading one type of death for another. Not only that, but lawsuits are starting to happen where doctors are being held responsible for someone’s suicide if they killed themselves due to untreated pain (which was easily treatable but denied).

    Chronic pain patients don’t deserve to suffer. And just “taking away” opiates from those who need them is not the answer.

    Did you know over 80% of opiate deaths also had Fentanyl, Heroin, or Cocaine in their system?

    The way to slow down opiate deaths is to STOP the production and selling of black market, or counterfeit meds, laced with illegal heroin and fentanyl. THIS will curb overdose deaths while still getting these life saving medications to those who need them.

    Currently it took me 5 years to find a doctor who was willing to prescribe for me. I’m tearing up writing this because I finally have some semblance of a life worth living again. I can care for my 6 year old son again and play with him. And I’m terrified of my doctors suddenly taking it away because they are afraid of being investigated. We have gone too far the other direction in attacking the doctors. These are not the drugs that are causing the deaths. It’s the counterfeit medications. And it’s making life for chronic pain patients extremely difficult.

    We need to meet on the middle. Stop jailing doctors who are treating their chronic pain patients. Stop scaring PCPs into not writing ANY prescriptions anymore and just passing the buck to pain clinics who only want to do risky injections. We need to meet in the middle. Be a little more involved than we were pre-2012 but reel it in a little bit from this mass hysteria we have caused for the poor doctors.

    There are women coming out of a double mastectomy with just TYLENOL because their doctors are afraid to prescribe.

    This is not working. We need to pivot and address the counterfeit meds and give these doctors a little more confidence to prescribe to those who truly need it.

  2. I’m happy for the Republicans like Greene, Lake, Boebert and Mastriano. They’re selling their slice of America on VOMIT ICECREAM; that it’s what Republicans, Democrats, and the rest of us need, but they keep ignoring the grimaced faces of those who have tasted it over the last six years. They never hear the murmurs “this taste funny”.

  3. I’m simply voting to get rid of these inflation high gas pricing causing idiots aka Democrats. Great propaganda piece though. Not working on me.

  4. Philadelphians need to wake up and give Doug Mastriano a chance.
    If you don’t give a Republican a chance how would you ever know?
    The Democrats have run this City for 65+ years and what have they accomplished?

  5. Why is this anti-Semite tolerated? Just research how he’s linked to and endorsed by a far right anti-Semitic social media site. Forget democrat vs. republican. This man is a piece of crap!

  6. If his type would follow the same logic about AGW and the stupidity of gun idolatry, they'd get more votes from people fed up with Democrats' woke-coddling attitudes. There's too much lockstep tribalism vs. broad critical thinking ability.

  7. Just what we need in Pennsylvania another Benito Mussolini vote for me but when I get in if I don't like your vote I will decertify the voting process and impose my will. Hail "Hail IL Duce"

  8. Pro life but hey! Mom dies even if it’s a miscarriage or still birth but she has no rights according to him makes absolutely no sense how is that even PRO life ffs 🫠🫠🫠🫠🥴🥴🥴🤡🤯 and Dr. Oz what a joke Best Republican Governor in PA was Tom Ridge. Now it’s Doug I’ll take a Tom ridge Republican any day over these nuts

  9. I love how the US embrace their Italian politicians as if they are so deep. The same Italy that Europeans regard with mock contempt as loud mouthed, lazy, cowards who's armed forces folds like a cheap tent.
