When good policy is defunded
So one of the key programs that kept Pennsylvania stable was the state's longstanding HEMAP program, which I m just now seeing is being defunded and thus shutting down for the most part. I am not sure anyone has ever done a cost benefit analsyis of any kind on the program, but this just has to be one of those programs that has a benefit far outweighing the costs. No matter what your political or philosophical bent it's hard to see how this makes sense. In fact I think it had a sort of omni-political level of support.
It just ... like.... I'm speechless. Bad. Bad. Bad.
h/t @capitol_ideas for pointing it out. I have just been distracted or I should have caught this earlier. I see the Inky had some longer coverage earlier in the month.
