I somehow feel like our legislators are weaseling around so that they also get a pay raise. While our judges aren't paid comparable to other states--they can always move to those states for better pay. Ohio announced we have had a good year with more money than expected. So right away, everyone wants it. Ohio has that extra money because of all the services they have cut and dumped onto counties, towns, ect to try to work into their budgets. If there is extra money Ohio should look to our schools and social services that need the state to provide funds which should be the primary concern. If we are in such good shape as this article insinuates, why are food banks desperate for donations?? Because all these jobs Kasich touts that have reduced unemployment are poor paying jobs that families can't live on!!!! I feel to #%&* with our politicians who sit on their duffs and shuffle important issues under the rug. Based on the important issues they have solved in the last 4+ years, they aren't worth a *&%$. They think their big item is naming roads after our sacrificed service people. And our legal people can live on their frozen pay, or move on to states that pay better. They are more interested in politics to win positions than working for the people of Ohio. Our legislative and legal systems have gone to &%$# in this county. The "Party" is priority, then feathering their nests. They are abusing our Constitution and Bill of rights--twisting the meanings to suit their needs. We need to clean house and weed out these criminals we pay to look out for us and have the country and people's best interests the priority. Our system is rotten from the president, congress, military--every level in our states and country. Our country is rotten at the core, just as Rome was when they went down as a super power. And we sit on our $%#@ instead of jamming their phone lines and sending mountains of complaints to let themknow we are disgusted with them, and we demand change!
