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.

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.

“I think he’s being honest. I think any campaign if they’re offered information about their opponent, they’re going to be interested in taking it.

That’s despite the warnings from climate scientists over that period about the perils of inaction when it comes to reducing climate-warming emissions.

The 106-95 vote came after more than a hour of impassioned pleas from Democrats and at-times angry rebuttals from Republicans, who took offense to the framing of the debate.
“I know my colleagues care,” said Rep. Greg Rothman, R-Cumberland, after listing off existing benefits programs like food stamps and heating assistance. “This is about accountability.”
Several Democrats, including Rep. Matt Bradford, D-Montgomery, said they would welcome proposals from Republicans to prevent fraud and misuse of the program.
“No, this isn’t accountability,” Bradford, Democratic chair of the powerful Appropriations Committee, said. “This is cruel.” Read more ...
