The PA folks I talked to last week have pretty much had their belly full of this POS. But who knows, maybe Pittsburg and Philly love this azzclown.
His last name is (D). The (D) family always wins in Philly and Pittsburgh. Overwhelmingly.
Note to Trump: This is why aid needs to bypass state capitals.
Note to PA’s other counties: Either you all hang together or, most assuredly, you will hang separately.
Trump should make an appearance in that county and sign an executive order on the federal money.... might lock up PA for him.
I think the aid COULD bypass the state capitals. Im pretty sure Lebanon County had the right to apply for the aid independently. If they didnt do it, its probably because they dont have the staff resources to get through a cumbersome application process.
You know, it’s 13 million (and all told, if I calculated it right, it’s about 63 million nationwide being withheld from ‘outlaw counties’) It might behoove the president to appeal to the American People to support those counties who are being punished for failing to be in lockstep with their state governments.
Heck, finding the funding probably wouldn’t take much more than a few phone calls. As well as lawyers ready to represent the various counties involved to get the money paid back when they win in court.
It’d be an incredible campaign stunt, bypassing obstructionist liberals who are punishing the people by withholding funds they’re entitled to.
‘course the worst part is that he’d have to assign a couple people just to make sure the money got to where it was supposed to.
Isn’t this like withholding federal funds from sanctuary cities? Which judges have ruled illegal.
I dont think these counties have much of a legal leg to stand on. Strings get attached to government funds all the time.
It’s my county and President Trump would be VERY welcome here!
Wolfs denial of the aid means Lebanon County doesnt have to follow any of the rules. Open for business.
‘The PA folks I talked to last week have pretty much had their belly full of this POS.’
nope; PA is full of cowards who will take whatever this ass dishes out, and then nod eagerly when he dishes out some more...lots of older nagging females in my area who think nothing of ratting people out...
Remember when the fed tried to hold funds from sanctuary states? Didnt a judge rule that illegal?
Considering the liberal load in the courthouse, I wouldn't guarantee a win, but there'd probably be a line of lawyers ready to go ask that question.
THAT SUREASHELL WILL GAIN HIM SOME VOTES NEXT ELECTION!
I’m in Centre and would be more than happy to take a ride and spend some money Lebanon County. Maybe some kind of open air festival weekend could happen?
Keep in mind that the aid is intended to help governments and companies deal with COVID-related closures. If a county ignored the state closure orders, wouldnt that mean (in theory) that it shouldnt need the money?
