Today PA. governor Wolf stuck to the tax and spend liberal plan that has made Pennsylvania one of the most debt ridden states in the nation with not enough revenue to pay the bills it already had.
Per the script it was more miney, more money, more money.
heres how it works out😒
Public schools: The budget proposal would raise funding for public schools to a record level.
Taxes: Wolf swings again at a severance tax on gas drilling, but isn’t otherwise pushing for new or increased taxes.
Health and humans services: Wolf is proposing some increases in funding.
Opioid epidemic: Wolf is proposing an increase in funding to fight drug addiction.
Harrisburg: The city will continue to collect money it’s been getting for fire protection of the Capitol.
State Police: Wolf is again proposing to levy a fee on municipalities that rely solely on state police for police coverage.
Universities and colleges : The state-owned universities will see an increase smaller than they’d wanted in the budget, but that’s more than the state-related schools — Penn State, Pitt, Temple and Lincoln — will see.
Environmental protection: Wolf is proposing to increase spending, but it’s a drop in the bucket after years of flat or reduced spending.
Legislature: It won’t see any cuts, but Wolf isn’t proposing to increase the House and Senate budgets.
State workers: Wolf is looking to reduce the workforce overall, but through attrition rather than layoffs.
