From Saturday’s Columbus Dispatch, we learn that the Kasich-Taylor ticket is ready to throw the pending bill to repeal Ohio’s income tax in ten years, sponsored by Treasurer candidate Josh Mandel and almost the entire House GOP caucus, under the bus.
In a story discussing how the Democrats have gone on the offensive against Kasich’s tax plan, Mary Taylor manages to throw the rest of the ticket and the entire GOP House legislative caucus under the bus:
Auditor Mary Taylor, Kasich’s running mate, said Kasich’s tax proposal is being confused with Adams’ bill. Some news reports have falsely equated the two.
“I think the Democrats are obviously trying to spin it in the way that’s most favorable to them, but they’re talking about a plan that doesn’t currently exist,” Taylor said.
Kasich has said that he’ll do it in a responsible way.? I can only assume that if the Kasich-Taylor ticket disowns the bill that Treasurer candidate Josh Mandel and almost the entire GOP House Caucus has sponsored, it’s because it’s not “responsible.
Hear that ODP, Mary Taylor just called Josh Mandel’s tax bill bad for Ohio.
Oh, and what was Taylor’s response to Democratic criticism that the ticket has YET to describe any plan to pay for its tax repeal?:
“[T]hey’re talking about a plan that doesn’t currently exist,” Taylor said.
The media has been too gentle with image-conscious Kasich.? It is not, as the media has said, that Kasich has refused to divulge his plans to pay for his tax repeals.? HE PRESENTLY HAS NO PLAN TO PAY FOR THEM, says his running mate.
In John Kasich’s own words in this story, he’s been talking about repealing Ohio’s income tax since 2007.? And yet, he still has no plan on what timetable he’d try to do it by, or any plan to pay for it–two years later and nine months before the election.? No plan.
John Kasich has no plan for Ohio.? Just ask Mary Taylor.
