PA Budget/Severance Tax Talks Resume Today – Without Gov. Wolf

without youWow. Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf is as stubborn about wanting to raise PA taxes as a jackass–his party’s mascot. Wolf’s latest proposed budget was voted down last week–with nine Democrats in the House voting against it (see PA Gov Wolf’s High Tax Budget Goes Down to Defeat – 9 Dems Against). Wolf’s proposed tax grab was described by Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, R-Butler, as a thug trying to mug somebody, taking all of their money at gunpoint. The vote was a total humiliation of the in-over-his-head Wolf. Even fawning liberals are now turning on Wolf–describing him as stubborn (their words, not ours). Has the recent vote and criticism made Wolf more likely to now compromise with Republicans to craft a budget that doesn’t hit middle income workers quite so hard? Nope. Even though negotiators will be back at the table today to talk about the budget, yesterday Wolf went on a radio program to say he’s not “caving” on his insistence that high taxes be part of the budget. He’s gone completely bonkers–off his rocker. Perhaps they need to consider a straight jacket?…
