Pennsylvania Government Shutdown

I have this to say about the looming shutdown: bring it on.   Apparently 24,000 state workers could be temporarily laid off if a compromise is unable to be reached on the budget.   I’m fairly certain that those workers have very little impact on my daily life.  I’m also fairly certain that things in the Commonwealth will largely hum on as usual in their absence.  Police will still be working, same with fire.  I’m assuming Penndot is largely essential, at least the parts that matter.

I can bear through the loss of state parks and what have you.  I want the Republicans in Pennsylvania to understand this completely: Hold out.  Do not give into the Governor.  I do not want my taxes raised.  It’s time to put a stop to his agenda here.  If that means the state has to shut down, so be it.
