Democratic Auditor General Warns about Pennsylvania’s Fiscal Future

Democratic Auditor General Warns about Pennsylvania’s Fiscal Future 

As a legislator, Bryan Lentz did little to prevent crisis

DREXEL HILL, PA – Last week, Pennsylvania Auditor General Jack Wagner issued a statement calling Pennsylvania’s current budget outlook “one of the greatest fiscal crises in state history.” According to Wagner, Pennsylvania could soon face a $5 billion budget gap. Wagner, a Democrat, blamed “years of fiscal sloth” for the deficit.
 
“Bryan Lentz has spent the last four years as a rubber stamp for a Democratic majority in Harrisburg that has put Pennsylvania on track for fiscal ruin,” said Bryan Kendro, Meehan for Congress campaign manager. “Lentz had a chance to fight Harrisburg’s excessive spending, but when push came to shove he always voted in line with his party leadership to increase Pennsylvania’s debt.”
 
Lentz, a member of the House Appropriations Committee which decides how dollars are spent, has voted to increase spending by about $1 billion each year he has been in office. According to a report by the Commonwealth Foundation, a non-profit research group, since Lentz has taken office Pennsylvania’s debt has reached nearly $120 billion, or $38,400 for the average family of four.
 
“If Bryan Lentz failed to hold the line on spending in Harrisburg, why should voters expect him to do it in Washington?” Kendro concluded.
