That’s the subject line for Governor Tom Wolf’s latest email to supporters. As in, “no” is all he’s hearing from legislative Republicans.
“We’re still without a budget, and there’s only one reason for it: The Republicans refuse to compromise,” Gov. Wolf writes.
Wolf goes on to mention his new pension plan and how it was rejected by the opposition.
“Last week, I offered a pension reform plan that gives Republicans nearly 80 percent of what they want while also ensuring that Pennsylvania workers can count on a secure retirement,” the Governor asserted. It’s a plan that saves the Commonwealth $17.3 billion.”
“But the Republicans are still saying ‘no.’”
The Governor also mentioned the importance of education and pointed to the looming start of the school year.
“And with schoolchildren starting to return to the classroom, I want to make sure that message gets through — tell the Republicans to end the games and pass the budget,” Gov. Wolf concludes before linking to a petition to stand behind his budget veto.
Whether this aggressive tactic works, though, is the main question.
