VIDEO: PART 6 "BATTLE OF THE TODDS," BOSLEY SAYS THAT SNITCHLER IS A "JUST SAY NO" STATE REPRESENTATIVE. IS HE CORRECT?
Todd Bosley "got up close and 'personal'" with 50th District Ohio Representative Todd Snitchler (Republican - Lake) in their "Battle of Todds" debate on Ron Ponder's "Points to Ponder," (WHBC-AM1480) on July 28th.
In this segment of the debate (see the video below), Bosley accuses Snitchler as being for cutting $250,000 million from Stark County schools in that Snitchler was a sponsor of House Bill 400; a bill to phase out Ohio's income tax over 10 years.
That's a specific charge.
A more general charge was that Snitchler is like his counterpart Republicans at the national level (popularly known as "the party of no") in that he has no consistent, positive agenda for Ohio and the 50th House District and that all Snitchler has to say is no.
The SCPR does note that during this entire debate, it does seem that Bosley had Snitchler in the "defending" himself position. One has to wonder why Sntichler didn't attack Bosley as a "tax and spend" Democrat because of Bosley's two votes as a sitting county commissioner for the "imposed" sales tax in December, 2008 and, before that, having - as a relative new commissioner - having voted for a license plate fee increase.
As the SCPR sees it, Bosley is being somewhat disingenuous in scoring Snitchler for not getting his sponsored and cosponsored legislation passed. Anyone who knows anything about how Columbus works, knows that in modern legislative times (Republican or Democrat), the majority party pretty much shuts out the minority party from getting significant legislation passed.
Here is video segment six in which Snitchler goes back to his effort to get performance audits of all departments of state government enacted.
