Kasich's Numbers

***  Gov. John Kasich doesn't appear to be able to keep his numbers straight.  His speeches and conversations about the pensions and health care of public workers just are so inconsistent.  Some people might even accuse him of distorting the facts, and just downright lying.  You can judge for yourself in this video put together by Plunderbund:


It almost seems as though every single time Kasich opens his mouth that his nose is growing longer, longer, and longer.  Has Kasich just lied so much that he cannot even remember the truth?

How does Kasich feel that his idol, his god, Ronald Reagan was for collective bargaining and unions (see YouTube)?

In my own unscientific poll, the No on Issue 2 people clearly outnumber the other side. Those of us voting NO on Issue 2 can gather some information from front yard signs and bumper stickers - - - We know our friends.

Vote NO on Issue 2.

Vote NO on Issues 1, 2, 3.

****  Those of us living in Ohio's 15th congressional district have Republican Rep. Steve Stivers who still has not sponsored a bill that relates to job creation.  Stivers has sponsored 4 bills in the U.S. House of Representatives and not one has created a job, but they are making his banking and stockbroker friends happy. Even as Stivers says on his website that job creation is one of his priorities, the numbers just don't add up.

If you visit the OpenSecrets page on the campaign funds raised by Steve Stivers, you'll discover this about the Stivers campaign committee--- his PAC contributions outnumber those made by humans:
