Michelle Schneider claims taxpayer protection

Dear fellow tax hikers, we admit to initially being shocked today when we read that our newly-crowned Tax Hiker of the Year Michelle Schneider signed a pledge promising to oppose tax increases. If we didn't know our Michelle so well, we would think she is trying to run from her impressive tax-and-spend record. But we know her better, and we have also learned why she pretended to be a conservative.

Here is what Michelle signed: "I Michelle Schneider, pledge to the taxpayers of the 7th Senate District of the State of Ohio and all the people of this state that I will oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes."

Michelle Schneider has never opposed efforts to increase taxes! Michelle stood with Bob Taft to raise our Sales Tax, she stood with Jean Schmidt to raise our Gasoline Tax, she stood with Virgil Lovitt to raise our Hotel/Motel taxes, and she stood with John Pepper to send millions to The Freedom Center. We tax hikers know she's one of us.

Our investigative prowess has discovered the cause of this act. Michelle's campaign manager is as predictable as a clock. He does the same thing in every primary campaign he runs - define his candidate as the conservative, regardless of whether it is true. Just you watch - Michelle will be defined as a conservative in her logo, on her website, on her signs, in her lit pieces, and in her tv ads. They will omit all mentions of her many tax increases.

Some would say this isn't being honest, but come on this is Michelle Schneider we're talking about! She cares about winning, not about being honest. Nobody can overlook Michelle's fantastic tax-and-spend record. And that's why we proudly endorse her for State Senate.

Michelle must have had her fingers crossed behind her back when she signed this pledge. She is a tax-hiking purebred with the record to prove it.

We are just so excited to be able to vote for both Michelle Schneider AND Leslie Ghiz in the same election! And to think, we've never been able to vote for either one of them before.

You know, the Greeks invented political deception.

If there's one thing Michelle knows its raising taxes. I ought to know, I nurtured her throughout her legislative career. I couldn't have saved Ohio's economy without Michelle's support for each and every one of my tax increases.

And to think Tom (tax killer) Brinkman is backing Michelle for Senate because the GOP hurt his feelings because Tom couldn't deliver any more than an IOU to the ORP piggybank. Tom in years past was the one running "tax & spend" attack ads against Michelle and cutting the head off cakes with Mean Jeans face. So what sort of brain aneurysm is Brinkman having?
