Tom Wolf’s Top Budget Priority: Higher Taxes

HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Communications Director Megan Sweeney released the following statement regarding Tom Wolf’s continued refusal to take part in substantive budget discussions with the State Senate and State House.

“It’s become clear that Governor Tom Wolf’s top budget priority is raising taxes,” Sweeney said. “For months, Tom Wolf has traveled around the Commonwealth peddling a series of tax hikes that would cripple the budgets of countless Pennsylvania families. Even after the state House voted to unanimously reject the Wolf tax hikes, Tom Wolf is stubbornly refusing to move on a single one of his tax increases.

“Pennsylvanians deserve a responsible budget that focuses on growing our economy instead of expanding the scope of our government. It’s time for Governor Wolf to stop campaigning and start hold substantive discussions with the State Senate and State House.”
