Republican lawmakers are hurting the county

The budget created by the majority in the Erie County Legislature has been crafted to do to Erie County what the House of Representatives has been attempting to do to the United States economy and the Obama administration.

County Executive Mark Poloncarz has been able to slowly straighten the ship that Mr. “Run County Like a Business” had taken off course, and this move is trying to thwart these positive changes. It is inconceivable that a majority of Republicans think it is more important to try to wreck the economy in an attempt to win the next election.

I realize this is by no means all Republicans, but they are leading the majority in these types of actions.
