PA GOP Statement On Governor Tom Wolf’s FY 2016-17 Budget Proposal

HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement regarding Governor Tom Wolf’s proposal for the FY 2016-17 budget.

“Listening to Governor Wolf’s rhetoric about raising taxes is like déjà vu all over again,” Gleason said. “Tom Wolf single-handedly plunged our Commonwealth into a budget crisis when he repeatedly vetoed funding for schools and social services this year. Now, Tom Wolf just gave a budget proposal that’s was filled with calls for the same massive tax hikes that got Pennsylvania into this mess in the first place. How can Tom Wolf claim he’s ‘proud’ of his actions during the ongoing budget crisis when so many families are still suffering?

“Tom Wolf’s failure to lead has already put our Commonwealth on the wrong path. It’s time for Tom Wolf to stop acting like ‘America’s Most Liberal Governor’ and start working with Republicans to enact a fiscally responsible budgets for this year and the next.”
