Description

Gov. Wolf vetoed the Republican-backed $30.1 billion budget in its entirety Tuesday night, a move that leaves Pennsylvania without a spending plan and sets the stage for a partial government shutdown. A visibly frustrated Wolf told reporters shortly after 9 that the spending plan the Republican-controlled legislature sent him was riddled with "gimmicks," as well as "smoke and mirrors, and a lot of kicking the can down the road." He said it failed to adequately fund public education or provide property-tax relief to homeowners, and contended it would worsen the state's finances. "This isn't partisanship. This isn't ideology," the Democratic governor said. "The math doesn't work." http://www.philly.com/philly/news/politics/20150701_Pa__GOP_sends_its_budget_to_Gov__Wolf.html http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by O&O Self Storyboarding using http://wochit.com
