Hey Mad citizen, After years in power, the republicans have failed to correct the fiscal mess the state finds itself in. Since it refuses to move forward with a compromise well I guess they can just hold this years budget over until 2016. By then the voters will be so enraged, no republican will be elected for decades. It’s their call. They are the ones holding the process up. It is their fault the state has fiscal woes to begin with because they have proven time and again that they cannot govern in Pennsylvania. They are cheap, political conmen and extortionists.
He can sign these bills, but can’t balance the budget.
He’s in no mood to pardon anything or anyone. The Republican traitors to the state should remember the 2016 elections are approaching fast. There are many voters mad at their intransigence.
Will Wolf be pardoning a turkey today?
