Meeting with supporters in Philadelphia, Wagner calls for City Hall reforms

Meeting with supporters in Philadelphia, Wagner calls for City Hall reforms

Scott Wagner met supporters in Philadelphia last Tuesday night. While his campaign office in Society Hill has been a GOP location in the past, this election sees it as the headquarters for Democrats for Wagner. 

The Republican gubernatorial candidate trails by an increasing margin in polls against incumbent Governor Tom Wolf (D). Morning Call’s most recent polls have Wolf leading by 19 points entering the stretch run of the campaign.

Wagner met with Philadelphians sick of Harrisburg and City Hall not addressing their concerns over continuing issues like growing poverty, recidivism, and gentrification. They appear to have found an ally in the former state Senator and waste management entrepreneur.

Wolf vetoes Medicaid work requirements

Wolf vetoes Medicaid work requirements

Gov. Tom Wolf vetoed legislation to add work requirements for able bodied adults to receive medical assistance in Pennsylvania Friday.

The bill, HB 2138, passed the House in April and the Senate last week with ayes and nays from both parties.

It was written to exclude those under 18 and over 65, parents of kids under six, pregnant women, the disabled and some others from the requirements. But Wolf, who expanded Medicaid in his first term, said the bill would create unnecessary barriers.
