Gov. Wolf vetoes no-tax-hike Republican budget for third time

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf said Tuesday he will use his line-item veto power on the $30.8 billion, no-tax-hike budget passed by the Republican-controlled Legislature. So the big question is why didn't Wolf do this on July 1 when the first budget was sent to him by the Legislature? The answer: Wolf wants to raise taxes on working Pennsylvania families so he held the budget hostage for the past 6 months in the hopes of forcing the Legislature to raise taxes. His ploy didn't work. So here we are - six months into the new fiscal year - without a budget, thanks to Wolf and his far-left staffers who want to spend more than the state takes in.
