    Took healthcare insurance away from children within families that had two moms or two dads, and fought costly (unneeded if the laws weren’t there) legal battles to keep those children from having healthcare.

    Very one-sided list with facts left out which would point to reasons behind many of these actions or prove the statements false. Don’t like everything Snyder has done, but he inherited SUCH a disaster from those that “served” before him, he HAD to make tough decisions. Michigan is solvent now and starting to thrive. He has my vote.

      Sometimes the facts are one-sided. He has done nothing to make this state solvent. We’re in worse shape now than when he took office in 2011.
