Wolf Administration Refuses to End the Budget Crisis

HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Communications Director Megan Sweeney released the following statement regarding the Wolf Administration’s claim they will not be taking the PA House GOP’s budget deadline “seriously.”

“Tom Wolf hasn’t taken this budget crisis seriously since it started,” Sweeney said. “Tom Wolf’s complete budget veto plunged our Commonwealth into this budget crisis in the first place. Tom Wolf decided to not take the Republicans’ repeated efforts to provide emergency funding for our schools and social services seriously, and as a result our schools and non-profits are closing.

“Tom Wolf certainly didn’t take his travel ban seriously, as he’s spent this budget crisis holding campaign press conferences around the Commonwealth. If Pennsylvanians have learned anything during this budget crisis, it’s that Tom Wolf takes his liberal ideology more seriously than Pennsylvanians going to school or in need of social services.

“His Administration continues to dismiss the severity of his actions and it is only worsening the crisis he created.”
