No one more than me wants this project to be exceedingly successful, thus creating then sustaining 2,000 and more decent, good paying jobs for Ohioans in Ohio.

Hopefully my skepticism is unfounded and this project isn't a boondoggle.

If Coda were considered a viable enterprise by men who had accumulated wealth through wise and prudent past investments; they would be eager to invest in this newly formed endeavor. The fact that Coda's existence is dependent on suckling from the public tet leaves plenty of room for skepticism.

If the company can only get funding from the government, then it will only survive as long as the government continues to take money from viable businesses to give to them.

Agreed. Free Markets believe that government interference is a problem, until they need government loans, incentives, tax breaks, roads, etc. Then it is "I'm a Free Market Capitalist, well, almost".

Businesses all over Ohio are lining up outside of Kasich's headquarters with the hands out looking for taxpayer funded freebies. If these companies were viable, they would operate without government assistance and have planned for risk and a down business cycle. If they need taxpayer funds to keep them alive, then they are failures being propped up by the rest of us. Sure, a couple hundred jobs are saved, while the rest of us are forced out of work.

I lived in Mahoning County for years and seen everything from a Blimp Plant to the Delorian automobile. I've seen jobs being promised and hope being built up by politicians at election time. I have lived in Franklin County for the past 15 yrs and it seemed nothing changed. I hope this is a viable company but I will believe it when I see it.
