Bad Numbers in Ohio

* Ohio lost over 20,000 jobs in March 2013. That is astounding! 


Ohio lost 20,400 jobs in March, more than any other state, the U.S. Labor Department reported Friday. 

The decrease comes a month after Ohio reported a healthy 16,100 gain in jobs in February....

....George Zeller of Cleveland, an economic research analyst, said posting such a large job loss now is alarming....

Gov. John Kasich has gotten his way in restructuring how Ohio brings jobs to the state. In the process, Gov. Kasich has left the public out of the business deals, agreements, and financial transactions that he and his hand-picked administrators have made. In the super secret world of Gov. Kasich, we might never know about the "development deals" made behind closed doors.

> Looks like there is more trouble for Kasich's handpicked leader for the Ohio GOP, Matt Borges.


....In separate news Monday, the AP reported that Attorney General Mike DeWine and Secretary of State Jon Husted, both Republicans, expressed disappointment that Borges had not made them aware of the liens before he sought their backing. Borges’ attorney said his client owes $168,161 in federal taxes and $4,198 to the state following a recent adjustment. Others say the dollar numbers are far higher....

Holy cow!  How does one owe that amount of money in taxes and still be able to represent a political party???? Oh, wait! Now I remember---We are talking about the Ohio Republicans!!!!
