PA GOP Chairman Statement on Wolf’s Budget Decision


HARRISBURG — Today, Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Val DiGiorgio released the following statement on Governor Wolf’s Budget Decision:

“Does Tom Wolf even want to be Governor? Yesterday, his irresponsible refusal to sign — for a third year in a row — a state budget into law demonstrated an astonishing lack of leadership. He has gone from America’s most liberal governor, according to the Huffington Post, by proposing the largest tax increase in our state’s history, to the most angry governor, when he shut down the government last year harming school districts and social service agencies. Governor Wolf has added a new line to his resume — America’s most ineffective governor — by again failing to sign a budget into law. Pennsylvania deserves a Governor actually interested in governing, not one focused on partisan political games.”
