Most of Pennsylvania’s 18-member U.S. House delegation had something to say about Wednesday’s historic vote to impeach President Donald Trump.
U.S. Rep. Scott Perry, R-10th District (floor speech): “This is bitterly and nakedly partisan. My colleagues on the other side of the aisle have made a mockery of this process and this government. They despise the president and are themselves abusing the power of this office, all to settle the political score they were unable to resolve at the ballot box.”
"This bill, also known as H.R.3, the Elijah Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act, would dramatically change the power that the US government has to directly negotiate drug prices for Medicare recipients — resulting in more than $450 billion in spending reductions for the program over the course of a decade. These savings would be offset, in part, by costs tied to expanding dental, vision and hearing coverage for Medicare recipients, a policy change also included in the bill, according to an estimate from the Congressional Budget Office.
"Ultimately, HR 3 will mandate price negotiations on at least 25 drugs the first year, then a minimum of 50 every year after. It will also include even stronger penalties for companies that raise the prices of drugs at a rate higher than that of inflation."
On Thursday, Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) called into question Ukraine’s strategic import, hinting the country’s value had been exaggerated by Democrats and “deep state” bureaucrats: “Okay, suddenly they’re a key strategic ally. I never heard that before the last eight weeks.”
Herein lies the problem. Ukraine’s supreme geostrategic and historical importance shouldn’t be in question, and it doesn’t have anything to do with partisan politics. It certainly didn’t during the Cold War or early post-Cold War eras. Politicians ranging from Dwight Eisenhower to Bill Clinton to John McCain all spoke publicly about the importance of Ukraine for U.S. national security. They understood, like statesmen and strategists had before them, that holding sway over its strategic territory, the pivotal buffer zone separating Western and Central Europe from Eastern Europe and Asia, was the key to becoming the trendsetting global power.
It would take whole a team of surgeons to implant a spine in U.S. Rep. Scott Perry.
This past week, the Carroll Township Republican flanked his mentor and House Freedom Caucus sibyl Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, as Jordan defended President Donald Trump's decision to abandon the Kurds in northern Syria. The move ensured a Turkish incursion into the region and a humanitarian crisis.
Days later, Perry offered a ham-fisted defense of the president's willingness to burn an ally and tacitly endorse ethnic cleansing.

Perry in his tweet reiterated some of the sentiments expressed Monday by President Donald Trump, who laid the blame on the latest pair of mass shootings on the country’s failure to address mental health issues. "Perry, who has received near-perfect ratings from the National Rifle Association since being elected to Congress in 2012, has consistently had a strong pro-gun record. He has opposed major efforts to reform gun laws, even those that would have addressed mental health issues. Read more...
After more than 2 years, Scott Perry announced a town hall on Wednesday, July 24th, to be held at a small fire hall in Hummelstown, PA. Tickets "sold out" within 10 minutes of the email and facebook post going public. The four Indivisible groups of the 10th District issued a formal request for a venue change to allow for greater attendance, which was dismissed. Capital Region Indivisible, Hershey Indivisible Team, Indivisible York, and Cumberland Valley Rising joined together to picket the event, which had only 50+ ticketed attendees in a hall that accommodates 200, to be allowed into the event to ask questions of their district representative.

Appearing on former Trump official and noted racist/alt-right Sebastian Gorka's radio show, Perry reiterated his attacks on Democrats for condemning Trump's racist tweets, and characterized Trump as “a phoenix from the fire came as a message from the Lord himself.”
After defending Trump's position on acception foreign help to get elected, Scott Perry votes against a bill that protects election security.
"The House passed a long-delayed aid bill on Monday that will send $19.1 billion to states and territories hit by flooding, wildfires, tornadoes, hurricanes and other natural disasters in recent months.The legislation passed by a wide bipartisan margin, 354 to 58, and now goes to President Trump.
"The approval of the Climate Action Now Act also constitutes the first time in nearly a decade that a major piece of legislation focused on addressing climate change has passed the lower chamber. That’s despite the warnings from climate scientists over that period about the perils of inaction when it comes to reducing climate-warming emissions.
Three House Republicans — Andy Barr (KY), Ted Budd (NC), and Scott Perry (PA) — voted against Thursday’s measure, even though they’ve vowed to protect people with pre-existing conditions. Perry has voted to repeal it five different times.
Scott Perry again voted in opposition to the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act. All PA GOP reps voted with the NRA, except for PA-1's Brian Fitzpatrick.
