Loony Lefty of the Week: Tom Wolf


June 04, 2015

This week's Loony Lefty of the Week is Governor Tom Wolf.

He earns the award for two reasons:

First, he demanded the General Assembly pass his proposed state budget in its entirety without any changes. So, Republican leaders brought the Wolf budget up for a vote and it received not a single vote from Republicans OR from Democrats. The Governor then denounced the vote he had asked for as a political stunt.

Second, he made this comment about property taxes as reported by the Pocono Record: "Wolf said there is a need to understand the investment that is education. There is a choice, he said, of supporting public education, but it comes with the cost of the taxes AND THE POSSIBILITY OF LOSING A HOME FOR SOME."

Imagine, the Governor of Pennsylvania so intent on feeding the union education beast that he finds it totally acceptable for hard working citizens - most of them senior citizens - to lose their homes if they cannot pay the government the taxes it demands.

For these reasons Governor Tom Wolf is our Loony Lefty of the Week.
