  1. Mastriano should just wear his confederate uniform and preach how the South should’ve won! What a traitorous wannabe politician who would stoop so low in order please his white supremacist followers! SMDH!

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. Debunked theory that the election was stolen from Trump? Seriously? Just stating that it was "debunked" doesn't make it so…you need proof. You know, like the proof we have that it was stolen. Stupid media propagandists.
