We've said many times that the News-Herald is worthless. Well, its good for having something to discuss, mock, etc. We have to go on the record about the Plain Dealer: it's a worthless rag too.
This past week-end the Plain Dealer listed its endorsements for legislative races.
The Plain Dealer endorsed Lorraine "the legislative loser" Fende and Mark "carpetbagger" Schneider for OH-62 and OH-63, respectively. Going with the template, the Pee Dee slammed both Dave fiebig and Ron Young over issues of taxation--basically, Fiebig and Young (really Young) are against tax increases according to the Pee Dee.
Here's the skinny.
BobWeger, Dave Reichelt, and the gang screwed Fiebig. Weger and some on City Council made promises to the police and fire unions that have to be made good (according to them).
Weger and company coupled a tax increase to a change in the city charter that would give residents a right to vote on tax increases--on top of it all--they labeled this crap a safety levy! Disingenuous. The Pee Dee played along and blasted Fiebig for voting against the the so-called rights of the voters.
Yeah Right...and Weger's a republican and Reichelt's not a cry baby. LOL!
The same group led by Bob Weger either endorsed Lorraine Fende, or did so by "staying neutral."
Moving along. The Pee Dee went with it's usual support of those who want to take your money: they endorsed Mark Schneider and slammed Ron Young for being anti-tax.
Right on Ron Young, right on!
Protect our pocket books. Allow us to save and invest money. Allow us to feed our children.
BOTTOM LINE: Mark Schneider and Lorraine Fende raised the income taxes of Ohians by $800 million dollars over two years. This was done on top of $10's of millions of increases in fees and registrations by the State of Ohio.
