House Republicans fire back at Wolf for reopening comments

Harrisburg, PA – House Republican leaders issued the following statement in response to Gov. Tom Wolf’s comments on reopening efforts across Pennsylvania today:

“Name calling is beneath the dignity of the office of the governor.

“Millions of Pennsylvanians are unemployed, millions more have children who are not being adequately educated, and many others are watching their livelihoods fall apart while they have waited weeks for a failed unemployment compensation system to help. Our residents have been trying desperately to get the governor’s attention; however, he has not been listening.

“It is never wrong to lift the voices of concerned constituents. In fact, it is the duty of every elected official to do so. That is not cowardice; it is patriotism.

“The governor often touts jobs that pay, schools that teach and government that works. Well today, Pennsylvanians are hurting, and the governor is not delivering on any of those promises.”
