Parties verbally spar over budget

Posted: Aug 06, 2018 3:35 PM Updated:

The political parties are now joining in on the budget battle. Republicans are blasting the democratic majority for "not having a clear plan, or idea as to what they are doing." In

a news release, GOP Chairman Jerry Crisostomo criticized democrats for vacillating on tax increases, referring to aborted attempts to pass a sales tax and raise the hotel occupancy tax.  The Democrats countered with a statement of their own, blaming the Calvo administration for the current fiscal crisis because of "record spending and borrowing."

They say a bipartisan group is "working to pass a responsible budget, which isn't easy when so few people trust anything coming out of Adelup these days."
