Under failed Democrat Governor Tom Wolf, Pennsylvania has gone broke. And that’s not a figure of speech – Pennsylvania literally can’t pay its bills.
On Friday, Pennsylvania missed $1.7 billion in payments towards Medicaid, school districts and other services for the first time in its history, putting the vulnerable who rely on healthcare and schoolchildren at risk.
The Associated Press reports, “It is the first known time that Pennsylvania state government has missed a payment as a result of not having enough cash.”
Tom Wolf has consistently refused to do his job and use his constitutional authority to veto out of control spending, causing years of unbalanced budgets. Under Wolf, the Morning Call notes that “The state has had deficits for several years, even though the constitution says the budgets must be balanced.”
As Pennsylvania spirals out of control, Wolf is nowhere to be found. The Morning Call writes, “Wolf, a Democrat, has taken a back seat in budget talks for months.”
Tom Wolf’s refusal to exercise leadership is harming Pennsylvania. He’s proven he’s not capable of doing the job of Governor.
