Republican Rep. Daryl Metcalfe is right. The state budget was two weeks late this year. Even though I rarely agree with him, I applaud Rep. Metcalfe for telling the people, and most importantly his party bosses, the truth. Not only did Gov. Corbett and the Republican-controlled Assembly miss the budget deadline this year, it cost the taxpayers thousands of dollars to convene a special House session to give the spending plan final approval in mid-July. Gov. Corbett's on-time budget promise is now broken.
