Audio: Gov. Wolf’s Budget Blindspot

CF’s Nate Benefield joins Dom Giordano on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT to discuss the budget impasse and Gov. Wolf’s misleading claims.

During their conversation, Nate shed light on Gov. Wolf’s disconnect with voters.

“Voters, they did elect Wolf but they also elected large Republican majorities in the House and Senate. It’s not just those Republicans that are against some of Tom Wolf’s proposals. When they actually held a vote on his $4.6 Billion tax increase, it got zero votes.”

Nate also clarifies that no money will be going out to groups and organizations that Pennsylvanians depend on–including non-profits and schools.

He points out that residents “are still going to have to pay their taxes [but] agencies are not going to paid, non-profits are not going to get their money, and schools eventually are going to be missing their payments from the state”.
