Is Ohio Governor John Kasich the Chris Christie of the Midwest?

What to make of a Tea Party-backed candidate caught canoodling with President Obama?

If he reverts to his gun banning ways of the 1990s, yes, otherwise, we are wasting time internally. We need to be taking down PO14, no one from the grassroots seems likely to win a primary.

Governor Mandel would be nice, but lets not act stupid, fratricide means a D governor. A gun banner.

It is our duty to remind the man why he was elected, and what his duties are with respect to our state constitution.

He won Treasurer in 2010, he'll probably be re-elected next year.

After that?

He'll still be in his thirties in 2016...

Medicaid expansion will only be blocked in the legislature.

Like in VA, it will be passed as a horse trade for the drilling tax hikes needed to cut the income and sales taxes.

They've obviously run the numbers and expansion costs less than keeping things as they currently are. There is a financial benefit to the state so Kasich is making the right decision.

What you people are also missing is that if the Feds don't pay for these people, the hospitals get stuck with the tab. If the hospitals get stuck with the tab, who do you think gets stuck paying for it?

Saying yes costs us less than saying no. That's why Rick Scott is doing the same thing.

This has nothing to do with being a RINO and everything with making a common sense decision. It is the system we have and he is making the best decision he can under the circumstances.

And if it is blocked, what happens when all those Medicaid-heavy community hospitals in small towns start shutting down?

I don't see why you Republicans are so against taxes on oil and gas production. Who do you think pays a lot of government's bills in Texas?

The feds are broke, Bob. Just how do you and Kasich believe they're going to keep their "promise" [i.e., bribe] to pay a majority of these costs for the first few years? And just who do you think will be stuck with the final bill?

If the fed goes broke, hopefully the finger can be pointed at Obama.

Kasich and the other R governors in swing states, have no choice.

SEIU has a presence in healthcare.

Dear Conservative Retards:

To those voting clueless, please take a tutorial and learn how to use Google.

The baseline Texas severance tax on oil and gas is:

Gas severance tax = 7.5% of market value of gas produced and saved
Oil severance tax = 4.6% of market value of oil produced
Condensate tax = 4.6% of market value

http://www.rrc.state.tx.us/programs/og/severa...

Ohio:

(6) Two and one-half cents per thousand cubic feet of natural gas;

"A Feb. 2 report by Columbus-based Innovation Ohio, a nonpartisan organization promoting policies supporting the middle class and the poor, called for raising rates to those of Texas to help restore cuts to schools and local governments."

NO, thank you.

We would not be able to eliminate the income tax by raising severance tax that high.

We have 30-40 years of this shale money.

I don't oppose the tax hike, I oppose that we are getting strong armed into Medicaid expansion.

I think his budget is a good idea. It delivers a tax cut just in time for re-election.

Again, to my Dear Conservative Retards:

http://www.eia.gov/dnav/ng/hist/n3010us3m.htm

Lets use the price from May, 2012 to just for fun, which was approx $15 per thousand cubic feet.

Ohio Collects 2 1/2 cents.

Texas collects 7.5% of $15 which is $1.125

In other words, your bastion of low-tax conservatism Texas collects 4500% more gas severance tax than Ohio (45 times the amount), and you people are too DUMB to figure this out?

You can't figure out that Ohio taxpayers are getting SCREWED and you think you have enough candlepower upstairs to carry a gun around with you?

LMAO

You're a smart guy. You don't get the fact that Texas collects 4,500% more in severance taxes than Ohio does? And you don't get that this is why they don't have an income tax? And you don't get that what Ohio doesn't get, they get to pocket?

Look out for your self interest, man! That's the going rate. You're a fool if you think Kasich shouldn't raise severance taxes and lower YOUR income tax.

Because Texas is blessed to be the #1 oil and natural gas producer in the U.S.
Ohio is ranked.....#18...and #19, respectively.

Get a grip.

This, there is not enough oil/gas to make a difference.
