SB 5 will go down to defeat, the Democrats will gain control of the State, and Kasick will continue to be exposed for the greedy, un-Christian, power-grabber he really is. People are not stupid enough to believe that the working class caused the financial fiasco in Ohio and the US. Jobs are currently being lost under Kasick for State employees. Our agency just laid off and is doing so again at the end of the year. Every job lost is less revenue going to the State and more being paid out in unemployment, assistance etc. Kasick isn't about creating jobs for the middle class poor; he's about creating jobs for his cronies who make 140+k a year. He's about himself.

While I did not take this poll, I have mixed feelings about the content. Employees should pay 15% of premium for insurance. In our public sector workplace, we paid 20%(since 1992). Employees should pay 10% to their retirement, and Ohioans do. We pay the second highest rate nationally, next to Massachusetts. Public employees should not be allowed to strike. That is how the unions got their stranglehold on management. Seniority should be a "non-issue", and would be if management had the right to eliminate those people deemed unfitting. Just decided sharing a few facts wouldn't hurt.

2. You are stupid if you think anything but greedy, dishonest, in many cases, citizen didn't caused the "financial fiasco" we are currently in. They simply bought homes and stuff THEY COULD NOT AFFORD. This was allowed because libtard think everyone should have the "american dream" a home. It is that simple stupid.
3. "Un Christian" would be your post.

Concerning #1 - Unemployment had been drifting downward for many months before the Governor assumed office.

Regarding #2 - Tell that to my spouse whose job (and those of hundreds of others) vanished when the banks cut off their employer's line of credit in October 2008 forcing the business to close.

There's plenty of blame to go around for our present economic situation. Blaming it on any one thing demonstrates ignorance at its worst.

Where are the jobs Johnny? I'm glad people are waking up to what a complete IDIOT Johnny boy is. Is Johnny boy going to jump in late and replace an important person to get his way? This Kasuck guy is setting Ohio back not forward. Maybe he'll resign before his term is up. SB5 WILL be defeated in Nov. and Johnny boy will have to start thinking of retiring somewhere warm like California.(LOL) I'm sure he has some friends there.

Excellant! I was thinking the same thing.

In his short "Reply" he/she Insults the person 4 times! Typical GOP! No FACTS Just Insults!

Wait until that person is Scammed by another GOP Supporter!

It was GREED! and it was Both Parties! More GOP!

Any one can Buy the Congressional Report on the "Meltdown" at their Local Book Store or check it out at their Library!

SB5 is toast. Saying they like some provisions is like saying you like an ice cream cone buried in a bucket of horse dung. It is clear John Kasich didn't have a clue what he was doing when they rammed this through and Ohioan's will rectify than rather than let him drive our state bus in the ditch.

There is a lot time between now and November. I predict that the majority of residents silently support SB5. Nobody wants to face the rants of the lunatics in the unions in public, but when in the voting booth SB5 will become the law. It is good for the state and makes sense. Unions are corrupt and need to go away. It is unions that are protecting that scumbag lady that was caught on video. Down with Unions!

"Government has gotten to big and spends too much." Reagan. If not SB 5; Government still needs to be cut and taxes NOT raised by the 45% who pay NO taxes on the 55% that do pay taxes.

Ohio's unemployment rate was 8.6 percent in May, unchanged from April, according to data released this morning by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS).(Dated June 17)

Companies who receieved Fed Tax breaks and other subsides to increase employment did not do so...but they did keep the money. A question to ask is why? Is it greed? or a need to keep a safety net in place incase of second econmic downturn?

I do not care for Kasiok style of "shooting from the hip" and 'Ready, AIM, Fire" it appears that he lacks transparency and long terms planning.

John unethically forced this through when he despicably replaced to members on the committee to ram it through. I hope all the positive press he is getting for his historic(historically bad!)budget is matched by the news that people hate it and him and see that he is just out for the rich and is the enemy of any hard working middle class person. White or blue collar.
