Tom Wolf had two terms and eight years including COVID shutdowns, election security questions, and a budget surplus has finally come to the end with his term as Pennsylvania’s Governor.
$2,000 Stimulus Checks For Pennsylvania Resident
In the mids of the COVID-19 pandemic, Pennsylvania residents are hoping for the $2,000 stimulus direct payment. The federal government’s popular stimulus check program assist American households in their homes and put food on their tables when the economy was shut down and workers were laid off.
The money was free money that could have been distracted and would have come from the fed’s pocket but the Republicans did not want to do that after the budget passed. Wolf said in an interview posted by ABC27 “We had all this money and here’s another chance rather than using federal money, let’s use state money. We had so much it’s not like we had to raise anybody’s taxes.”
Despite several efforts and public advocacy, Pennslyvania never had the chance to state-funded $2,000 stimulus checks that Wolf pushed for as part of a $1.7 billion PA Opportunity Plan.
Under Wolf’s proposal, Pennsylvania households with an income of $80,000 or less would have gotten the $2,000 direct payments. Furthermore, Wolf said with residents facing inflation at the grocery store and gas pump the “$2000 would be a big help. I don’t know why I couldn’t get that done.”
