Question: If the state republicaNOs cut the amount the state funds to counties, cities, villages and school districts and do nothing to stop any local tax "Levies" (read Tax increase) is that a republicaNO tax increase?
IMHO it is a tax increase. My wife and I are retired and receive Social Security and a small military pension. Under the Kasuck plan our property tax debt will increase by $500-750 a year by 2012! I cannot afford it and most seniors cannot. If the state feels these cuts to local governments are necessary--then freeze local taxes until the state income gets well.

With all the foreclosures in Ohio, increasing property taxes again is not an option. We must take care of those people who are in need of nursing home care. Soon, too soon, we will have back in our state all of the military that have been so severely wounded, they too will need the nursing facilities. What then? Are these people to join the ranks of the ignored senior citizens and other critically ill and receive the minimum of care - left to the limited resources of their families. The VA hospitals do not have the capacility of taking care of long term residential people. Shame, shame!

I wouldn't say that the nursing home industry is pure and its motives beyond reproach. But anyone who's now an enemy of King John can't be all bad.

Poor, poor Kasich.....Perhaps he can get a lobbyist group he adores, the NRA, to go shoot the Nursing Home lobbyist group.

Kasich is spiteful and vindictive, and will bad-mouth and go after anyone who doesn't kow-tow to his very misguided ideas.

One and done for this guy!

Any time you see a group or individual spending as much money as the Ohio Health Care Association appears to be, you wonder how much they expect to get back for their efforts.
They are not an organization that exists for the public interest. Check them out. Who owns them? Who supplies them with money? Who are they supposed to benefit?
If there is an issue, why aren't a lot of people/organizations signing on?

Support Senate Bill 5. Lobbies do just that, support what they want. Say no to lobbyists and special interests.

I say we must stop Kasich at all costs, raise taxes to whatever level is necessary to meet the demands of every lobbying group out there and let the budget grow to the size it needs to be to meet the demands. That way, only the poor working stiff is inconvenienced and why would we worry about THAT slob anyway? He hasn't fidured out how to game the system and is therefore too stupid to warrant concern.

I agree Governor that these ads, meant to scare our senor citizens is NOT acceptable, just as the Republican sponsored ads meant to demonize democrats or scare our senor citizens into thinking national health care is a terrible thing should not be permissable either......HEY, thats a novel idea....TRUTH IN POLITICAL ADS!!!!!!! What a wonderful world it would be.

I think in the past that the nursing home lobby has used up an excessive amount of state resources while fighting lower cost alternatives to nursing home care; it's lobbying power is enormous. So I agree somewhat with Kasich. But I am reluctant to see his efforts succeed as it will no doubt be aligned to the Republican's nationwide goal of turning destroying Medicare and making more elder Americans destitute.

But a tax cut? Are you kidding? Only the richest, greediest SOB out there would support a tax cut with the cuts in basic services for the needy going on. But of course, this term well describes the country club elites that are the only constituency that Kasich seems concerned about. I'm just waiting for him to say to the rest of us,'Let them eat cake.'

So, does this mean he will give them back the $80,000 they gave him?
Hopefully he'll get run over by his own bus!
If you look closely, his buddies in the Ohio legislature gutted SB5 before they passed it. All that is left is the part about negotiating for working conditions. Even they think this bill stinks.
Kasich is turning on the people who paid to put him in office. This guy is a real piece of trash!

"...Kasich accused the lobby of using political donations to win cash for votes..."

What the F? Like Gov. Kasich never raised any money to win votes? This guy is nuttier than a fruit cake.
