In our lives, the choices we make about our profession, our friends, and our actions, can determine our future and how we are perceived by others. Republican John Kasich, candidate for governor, worked in Congress, and then went to Wall Street. Through his career, Kasich always supported the "trickle down" economic theory (give tax cuts to the rich, and the poor will benefit--- eventually). Kasich always supported the rich, the wealthy, the country club set. (Kasich is even on the board of directors for a country club in Delaware County.) Now as a candidate for Ohio governor, Kasich is trying to prove that he cares about average people. Unfortunately, for Kasich, not all the average Joes and Joans are buying his baloney.
Kasich has been unable and unwilling to give us, the voters, a complete picture of his time at Lehman Brothers. When Lehman Brothers collapsed, the largest bankruptcy in our nation's history, Kasich moved on and worked for Barclay's. Now, as a candidate for governor, Kasich and his ego, think that he can save Ohio by cutting the state income tax and state government. He wants to go up against school teachers and labor unions, but he wants to keep bankers, lobbyists, and moneyed right wing interest groups close to his side. Obviously, Kasich continues to care more about the rich, than regular working people.
If you are interested, CNN has a story up about how Kasich is trying to run away from his work at Lehman.
