Number 40 for Boehner's Republicans

Speaker of the House John Boehner and the Republicans had their 40th vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act! Steve Stivers, Pat Tiberi, and the rest of the Ohio Republicans joined in on the idiotic exercise.  You can find the roll call vote here. Daily Kos has more about the GOP's latest vote.

>>> Ethics investigation???? It appears that a few more people are asking for ethics investigations of Gov. John Kasich and his JobsOhio.

Here is what the Kasich-loving, Republican-leaning newspaper said about the suggestion for an ethics probe-----Dispatch:

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ed FitzGerald’s ethics complaint against Gov. John Kasich and JobsOhio likely will be thrown out by the Ohio Ethics Commission.

That’s because the bipartisan watchdog panel was stripped of oversight authority over Kasich’s privatized economic development nonprofit, Paul Nick, executive director of the Ethics Commission, told The Dispatch.....

What could an investigation find? We should all push for an investigation.
