GOP pushes back on cash governor seeks for voting machines [View all]

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Republican lawmakers are refusing to commit to the millions of dollars sought by Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf to back up his demand that Pennsylvania’s counties buttress election security by replacing their voting machines before 2020′s presidential elections.

Republicans who control Pennsylvania’s Legislature say that a roughly $34 billion budget counterproposal they are finalizing does not include the $15 million Wolf requested, and that they want Wolf to back off his stated intention to decertify voting machines in use last year.

Republicans never agreed to require counties to replace voting machines, and helping finance the purchases is Wolf’s problem, not theirs, said Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman, R-Centre.

“This was a crisis that the governor created, and he needs to resolve it,” Corman said in an interview. “I feel bad for the counties, because he put a huge unfunded mandate on the counties, but that’s his responsibility.”

So Corman, your as spineless as your right wing fucking fascist party is, think about what you said " I feel bad for the counties, because he put a huge unfunded mandate on the counties, but that’s his responsibility.”

No asshole he did not put a unfunded mandate on the counties, your reverse logic does not work, this at your feet and your responsibilities all he is asking for is a back-up to the vote you know having a paper trail .......................
