COLUMBUS — When the governor publicly releases his proposed two-year operating budget Monday, it will show a $1 billion surplus, he said.

Until then, no one will know just how Gov. John R. Kasich and his staff arrived at that figure. That’s because they’re not telling anyone about the two-year budget proposal — including legislators and their leaders in either party.

It means the surplus — called the rainy day fund — will double from its current $500 million. When he took office two years ago, the surplus was 89 cents, he said.

His hints about the possibility of expanded Medicaid coverage — in addition to the surplus — likely will occupy the Legislature for some time. Expect a fight about what to do with that surplus: save it or spend it.

Since 2011, the state has reduced spending to schools and local governments, consolidated services and tried assorted other measures to keep the budget balanced. The possibility of that sizable of a surplus already has both sides gearing up for a fight.

why don't they use some of that (supposed) surplus to buy your beloved White Castle hamburgers and save it from default?

on another note, it is good to see a democratic state doing well.
