And Kasich is threatening to cut costs again? I am all for a balanced budget, but he takes it too far.
Let him save money by staying in Columbus and parking the plane. Let the governor and assembly save money by eliminating the double dipping pensions, and automatic pay raises. Let the assembly take a paycut to show us they are willing to sacrifice too. They can all cut their expense accounts and close the bar or run it at their own expense. Are we paying to run the Governor's mansion as well as his personal home? That would be wrong! We provide lodgings and if he choses to live elsewhere, it is his expense.
