Congressman Mike Turner speaks to Emily McCord for this week's PoliticsOhio. Turner says his history as a Congressman and Mayor of Dayton is reason for voters to give him another term. He discusses with McCord his views on sequestration, what he will and will not compromise on to get a budget deal passed through Congress, and how he believes Delphi workers should have their pensions restored.
Sharen Neuhardt is running for the newly formed 10th congressional district. She sat down with Emily McCord for this week's edition of PoliticsOhio to say why she thinks she'll win the election. Neuhardt the state of her campaign, the potential defense cuts coming with sequestration and its impact on Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, and how she plans to help Delphi workers that lost their pension after the company went through bankruptcy.
When automaker, General Motors, went through bankruptcy in 2009, about 20,000 non-union, salaried retirees from Delphi saw their pensions slashed, and other benefits like health and life insurance dropped completely. Those cuts were not applied to all Delphi union workers. WYSO’s Jerry Kenney reports, fingers are now pointing at the US Treasury Department for not applying those cuts evenly for all Delphi workers.
The Supreme Courts decision on President Obama's Affordable Care act has already received mixed reaction across the country, and as WYSO's Emily McCord reports, there's still argument on what this will mean for Ohio.
Republican Congressman Mike Turner endorsed fellow Republican Mitt Romney for president. Fifth-term Turner on Tuesday called Romney the leader the party needs to restore economic growth and defeat President Barack Obama in November.
Ohio's primary is March 6.
In a statement from his campaign, Romney said he welcomes Turner as a supporter of fiscal responsibility and national security. Romney says Ohio will be important to the election.
