Gov. Kasich talks the talk, but does he walk the walk?
His policies say no.
Athens County Job & Family Services Director Jack Frech says Kasich has done more damage than good for the poor.
"The truth is we've thrown 100,000 people, including 60,000 children, off cash assistance, and those people have nothing and they are hungry and many of them are homeless," Frech said. "That's the reality of his policies. I think it's great that the governor's talking about poor people, but his compassion that he expresses does not reflect the reality of his policies."
