Is Molly Varner Trying to Help Conservatives Like John Kasich Even More?
From the Marietta Times:
“In the 1990s, Kasich tried to get rid of the Appalachian Regional Commission, which would have completely devastated our area,” said Molly Varner, chair of the Washington County Democratic Party. “The ARC is more than just ‘pet projects’ as he once called them. If Kasich wants to be Governor and if he wants our votes, he should understand the needs of Appalachia instead of championing Wall Street values.”
I REALLY want Democrats to stick with this line of attack. They can argue in favor of bureaucracies and blue-ribbon, feel-good commissions while John Kasich can argue for what really solves poverty: cutting taxes and cut the red tape to unleash entrepreneurs to create wealth and jobs.
And Good Golly Miss Molly, wasn’t Ted Strickland a congressman who represented part of Appalachia for 12 YEARS? What was he doing during this time? His district remains one of the poorest in the nation.
