Let’s stop for a while and take a look at Lancaster County, and also our state.
First, a comparison of our state and Washington. Our state for a number of years now has been under Republican control (governor, House of Representatives and Senate). This has proven to have the same results as Washington. The last weeks and months have only been bad news for pensions, 401Ks, stocks, banks and other institutions. In all of these, the Republican-led government has consistently pushed deregulation and “Keep government out of our business.”
