first_img The Blog,  Weekly Update This week, Governor Wolf spoke out against the GOP Affordable Care Act replacement plan, the American Health Care Act.“This plan does not fix the Affordable Care Act – it would just delay the Republican plan to cut coverage for nearly a million Pennsylvanians, including those who were able to access quality, affordable healthcare after I expanded Medicaid two years ago,” Governor Wolf said in a statement released on Monday.On Wednesday, the governor sent a letter to five PA Congressmen seated on two key U.S. House committees to formally ask that they reject the bill. He also held a press conference on Friday to discuss how the AHCA would have a negative impact on Pennsylvania’s seniors.Governor Wolf also visited companies in Scranton, Allentown, and Lancaster to host discussions on his budget’s investments in Pennsylvania’s economy and job creation.Governor Wolf’s Week, March 5 – March 11, 2017Monday, 3/6/17Pennsylvania Tightens Medication Rules to Help Combat Opioid CrisisGovernor Tom Wolf Statement on GOP Health Care Repeal PlanTuesday, 3/7/17Governor Wolf Announces PennDOT Effort to Help Combat Human TraffickingWednesday, 3/8/17Wolf to PA Congressmen: Reject Health Care Plan That Hurts Our Constituents, Especially SeniorsOn “Jobs that Pay” Tour in Scranton, Governor Wolf Hosts Roundtable Discussion on Budget Investment in Pennsylvania’s EconomyOn “Jobs that Pay” Tour Allentown, Governor Wolf Hosts Roundtable Discussion on Budget Investment in Pennsylvania’s EconomyThursday, 3/9/17Wolf Administration Sues IBM Over Delayed, Costly Unemployment Compensation System UpgradeOn “Jobs that Pay” Tour in Lancaster, Governor Wolf Hosts Roundtable Discussion on Budget Investment in Pennsylvania’s EconomyGovernor Wolf Announces 60 New Jobs with United State Cold Storage Expansion in Bucks CountyFriday, 3/10/17Governor Announces Retirement of Revenue Secretary Eileen McNultyGovernor Wolf Announces Launch of Electronic Permit Application for Coal MinesGovernor Wolf: Pennsylvania’s Seniors Lost Under GOP Healthcare PlanHighlights from The BlogGovernor’s Advisory Commissions Stand Against HateGovernor Wolf, Pa Officials Speak Out Against ACA Replacement Bill (Round-Up)We Read the GOP Healthcare Repeal Plan and It’s as Bad as You ThinkPirates, Cardinals to Play in Williamsport during Little League World SeriesGovernor Wolf Announces Company Expansion, New Jobs in Bucks County (Round-Up)Highlights from TwitterGOP plan is also dropping substance abuse coverage.

Wigan 0 – 2 Chelsea

first_imgEden Hazard made an impressive Premier League debut for Chelsea in a 2-0 victory over a tenacious Wigan.The Belgian midfielder turned neatly before sending Branislav Ivanovic clear to sidefoot in the first.Hazard was then felled for the penalty which allowed Frank Lampard to double Chelsea’s lead after just six minutes.But Wigan’s Victor Moses twice tested Chelsea keeper Petr Cech while Jordi Gomez headed one chance off target before screwing a volley wide late on.Moses started for the Latics despite manager Roberto Martinez suggesting that his 21-year-old striker could be unsettled by ongoing speculation linking him with a move to Chelsea.The Nigerian, who scored six goals last season, produced a terrific performance to show why Wigan value him at £8.5m and why Chelsea are interested in acquiring him. He teased and beat England left-back Ashley Cole on numerous occasions in the first half, switching wings to do the same to Ivanovic in the second.However, by that point, Chelsea were already 2-0 in front with the impressive Hazard heavily involved in both goals.His first telling contribution was to collect a pass from Lampard in the centre circle and sharply spin away from Ivan Ramis before playing a straightforward through-ball into the path of Ivanovic. The Serbian then strolled into the penalty box and beat Ali Al Habsi at his near post with a low shot.Wigan debutant Ramis’s afternoon took another turn for the worse when he clumsily lunged at Hazard to give away a penalty, which Lampard fired low under Al Habsi’s dive.Hazard’s reward was to be clattered from behind by Gary Caldwell, a vicious tackle that earned the Wigan captain a yellow card. The incident seemed to rouse Wigan though, and they went on to dominate large chunks of play and more than matched Chelsea with Maynor Figueroa, Emmerson Boyce and Moses at the centre of their better work.However, they created few clear-cut chances and their tactic of sending a barrage of crosses into the Chelsea box failed to unsettle experienced centre-backs David Luiz and John Terry.Second-half substitutes Gomez and Arouna Kone added impetus for the Latics, the former seeing a deflected free-kick well saved by Cech while Ivorian Kone headed narrowly wide.But the goal Wigan’s endeavours deserved failed to materialise and they were indebted to Ramis for keeping the deficit at two when he atoned to a degree for his earlier failings by clearing a Fernando Torres effort off the line.It would have been easy for Torres to go down looking for a penalty under Ramis’s initial challenge but to the striker’s credit he toe-poked the ball beyond Al Habsi while stumbling forward, only to see his fellow Spaniard scamper back and knock the ball to safety.last_img read more
