Harper-Readinger Forum On WNPV

wnpv_politicsHealthcare was one of many issues discussed Monday in a joint appearance by State Representative Kate Harper and her Election Day opponent, Mary Lou Readinger, on the WNPV talk program Comment Please by Univest. Readinger said she sees a lot of people struggling with healthcare issues in her work as a nurse, she believes insurance should be made affordable for everyone, and state lawmakers missed a chance to reach that goal.

“Right now, when people are losing their jobs and need our assistance, unlike my opponent, I would have voted for expanding the Adult Healthcare Basic for people in need.  I just don’t understand why she voted against that.”

Harper said she has voted to expand adult basic coverage in the past, but when it came up for a vote in January of last year the timing was bad.

“It was right after the market crashed and we couldn’t afford it.  The last thing you want to do is create a massive entitlement to more government services at a time when we can’t afford it.  And to be very clear about this, 40 percent of our budget already goes to Medicaid and welfare spending.”

She said they were already facing a budget deficit, and the bill called for a massive increase in state spending, so she had to vote against it.  Harper also said she has concerns about drilling for natural gas in the Marcellus Shale, but the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has told her it’s safe.

“DEP assures me that they have it under control and that they know what they’re doing.  I’m worried about that.  That’s why I want some of the tax money to go into a fund to remedy any adverse impact that might occur.  On the other hand, this is so big that it’s important not just for Pennsylvania jobs.  This is important for American independence on energy.”

Harper is a Republican who represents Montgomery County's 61st District.  Readinger, a Democrat, says drilling must be done right with proper safeguards, but the state must also do more with alternative energy and other environmental initiatives.

“Jersey is way ahead of us, other states are way ahead of us in environmental initiatives, and we need to do more with solar and we need to do more with wind, so the focus has to be on all environmental initiatives and what’s good for Pennsylvania and jobs.”

Readinger says they have launched several green initiatives in Plymouth Township, where she is a council member.

WNPV AM 1440 AM/FM Radio Has More Daily Listening than All Other Audio Combined Source: John Potter, SVP/Professional Development, RAB Edison Research released results of their Share of Ear study at the Radio and Internet Newsletter (RAIN) Summit in Indianapolis on Tuesday, which took place prior to the 2014 Radio Show. The goal was to show all radio listening from a single source. Included were AM/FM radio, Internet radio, SiriusXM, and other audio sources. This was a national study conducted in May, 2014, online and offline, of persons 13+, in both English and Spanish. The sample base was 2,096. The methodology was diary based where respondents logged listening including platform, device, Internet radio brand, location (car, home or other), and type of element. The study shows AM/FM radio commands over half of Americans' share of time spent listening to audio sources: AM/FM radio -- 52.1% Owned music (CD's, digital music files...) -- 20.3% Internet radio music (Pandora, Spotify...) -- 11.6% SiriusXM -- 7.7% TV music channels -- 5.2% Podcasts -- 1.7% Other -- 1.5% More importantly, the study broke out audio listening of radio services and found AM/FM radio increased its lead over other audio sources: AM/FM radio --75.3% Pandora -- 9.2% SiriusXM -- 11.1% Other Internet radio -- 4.4% Daily reach for AM/FM radio is similar to other studies showing nearly 3 out of 4 Americans listen to AM/FM every day: • AM/FM radio --72% • Owned music (CDs, digital music files...) -- 39% • Internet radio music (Pandora, Spotify...) -- 26% • SiriusXM -- 13% • TV music channels -- 11% • Podcasts -- 5% The full study is available for purchase from http://www.edisonresearch.com.
