HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement regarding the lack of an alternative budget proposal by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Wolf and his fellow Democrats.
“Where is Tom Wolf’s budget proposal?” Gleason said. “Tom Wolf is more than comfortable with criticizing budgets, but he has refused to offer a concrete budget of his own. As someone who’s spent months running a negative campaign against Governor Corbett, why hasn’t he found the time to produce his own budget plan? Does he not believe the people of Pennsylvania deserve to know how much his spending plan will cost them?
“It’s not an accident that Tom Wolf is not attaching hard numbers to his campaign promises. The fact of the matter is that the price tags of Tom Wolf’s liberal campaign promises would give Pennsylvanians sticker shock. At a time when Pennsylvania’s economy is growing while the national economy is shrinking, Pennsylvanians simply cannot afford to go back to the days out-of-control spending.”
On June 11, the Corbett-Cawley campaign called on Tom Wolf to release his budget plan. As of today, he has refused to do so.
