HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Communications Director Megan Sweeney was not surprised to see Tom Wolf using President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign slogan “Forward” as the name of his latest campaign ad.
“Tom Wolf has fully embraced the Obama agenda and will take Pennsylvania down the wrong path,” Sweeney said. “Like President Obama, Tom Wolf wants to bring an agenda of bloated government, higher taxes, and more Obamacare to Pennsylvania. Like President Obama, Tom Wolf wants to impose job-killing government regulations on our coal industry in order to appease far-left special interest groups. Just like President Obama, Tom Wolf wants to impose major tax increases on Pennsylvania families in order to pay for his big government items.
“Tom Wolf has spent more time cozying up to President Obama than sharing the details of his proposed 188% income tax hike. Pennsylvanians simply cannot afford another round of the Wolf-Obama agenda. Their idea of ‘Forward’ is really ‘Downward’ and it is wrong for Pennsylvania.”
