Leadership Lacking from GOP

The lack of leadership from Ohio Gov. John Kasich has caused the loss of hundreds of jobs in Ohio. An example of the bumbling from Kasich's office is the layoffs from the Ormet plant. Plunderbund has details on how Kasich and his administration did little to save the jobs and continues to look for someone else to blame. You can read the entire Kasich job disaster at Plunderbund.  You do have to wonder if Kasich failed to do anything because of his deep dislike of union workers, like those at Ormet. No matter how you look at it, Kasich has failed to restore the jobs lost in the last recession.  The state continues to lose jobs.

The House vote on October 16th (Roll Call Vote 550) lists the following members of the House from Ohio as voting against the legislation to open the government and raise the debt ceiling: Chabot, Gibbs, Johnson, Jordan, Latta, Renacci, Turner, Wenstrup. The lack of leadership on the part of John Boehner has been an embarrassment to the state. It is time for Ohioans to throw these bums out of office and vote for elected officials that will move us forward.
