HARRISBURG – State Rep. Stephanie Borowicz (R-Centre/Clinton) issued the following statement today regarding Gov. Tom Wolf’s $34.15 billion 2019-20 state budget proposal:
“Rather than offering solutions that lead to the draining of Harrisburg’s swamp or making Pennsylvania great again, today America’s most liberal governor unfortunately focused on continuing his irresponsible spending and fiscally reckless borrowing against future generations.
“While he did not specifically mention it on the House floor, raising energy taxes on hard-working Pennsylvania families and job creators also remains among his top priorities.
“The governor also said that ‘Pennsylvania children deserve every opportunity to succeed.’ To our Planned Parenthood beholden governor, I say that Pennsylvania children first deserve every opportunity to be born.

“As I have stated repeatedly, effectively and transparently, governing on behalf of the people means eliminating wasteful spending, saying no to increasing state debt, fighting to reduce taxes for everyone and protecting the sanctity of all human life.
“Although definitely not shared by the governor, these are the anti-establishment ideals and solid conservative principles I have pledged to fight for on behalf of the people of the 76th Legislative District. The citizens who elected me to serve them deserve nothing less.”
