Let’s push Congress


to repeal unfair taxes


Now is the time, more than ever, for us, The People, to act and let our congressmen hear our voices. The IRS’s recent incident is a catalyst that we must use to remove unfair taxes imposed on us.


In fact, we should remove the IRS from the tax picture as it is only used for political and social control. Tell Congress to remove federal income taxes including personal, estate, gift, capital gains, alternative minimum, Social Security, Medicare, self-employment, and corporate taxes by supporting FairTax bills H.R. 25 and S122. FairTax is the only proposal in the Weighs and Means Committee that repeals the 16th Amendment and removes the IRS.


Please contact your Representatives telling them you want FairTax. For more information, and to check this information out, go to http://www.fairtax.org, or search for FairTax in your favorite search engine.

Coalition to celebrate


Breastfeeding Week


Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers is the theme of the 2013 World Breastfeeding Week, Aug.1-7. The Luzerne County Breastfeeding Coalition has developed a packet of Breastfeeding Education Materials currently in use in prenatal settings throughout Luzerne County. It includes a colorful Breastfeeding Resource Page listing important support opportunities in the community. Additional information in the packet helps a mother become familiar with the normal course of breastfeeding an infant.

More information on locally available breastfeeding support is available from The Luzerne County Breastfeeding Coalition. To request a PDF of the Breastfeeding Education Material Packet email the Coalition at lcbfcoalition@gmail.com or phone 570-808-5534. The Coalition is comprised of representatives from Northeastern Pennsylvania whose mission is to establish breastfeeding as the cultural norm in our community by advocating the promotion, protection, and support of breastfeeding. Local hospitals, Lactation Consultants, Maternal and Family Health Services, Early Head Start, Nurse Family Partnership, and La Leche League, sit on this Coalition and new members are welcome.
