Phillips-Hill: Governor’s budget makes irresponsible spending of today the next generation’s problem


Governor’s budget request is unsustainable and sets up for future failure

HARRISBURG – Sen. Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-York) released the following statement regarding Gov. Tom Wolf’s state budget proposal for the 2022-23 fiscal year:

“Current and future taxpayers will suffer the consequences of today’s fiscal irresponsibility included in this proposed budget. With sky-high inflation due to the federal government’s rampant spending, Pennsylvania does not have the benefit of printing money like politicians in Washington. This budget will need to be balanced on the backs of the hardworking taxpayers. The governor’s budget proposal follows the federal government’s playbook – spend today and make it someone else’s problem tomorrow. It is unsustainable and disingenuous to the people who pay our bills. We can and must do better.”
