Ohio's Fat Cats Doing Well for Themselves

The following is an example of some of the Ohio Republicans who've been elected in the state legislature.




Ohio's religious leaders are voicing their opposition to Gov. Kasich's cuts in food stamps.


Some leaders of Ohio’s faith communities are urging Gov. Kasich and state leaders not to stiffen work requirements and make other changes to Ohio’s food stamp program. The Rev. Tim Ahrens of Columbus says veterans are among those who will be hurt the most if the changes take effect in January.....

......The average family in Ohio got $287 a month in food stamps in 2012.

With all of these cuts, food pantries, soup kitchens, and programs that help the poor are being overwhelmed with requests from the needy. A hungry child cannot learn, but the fat cats in Ohio just don't care.
