Just saying.....

>>>>>  What is going on behind closed doors with the Republicans?
    HuffingtonPost has some of the battles going on between House Republicans. Goody!!!!

*  Some interesting news on Ohio's investments from the PlainDealer:

....Treasurer Josh Mandel will announce today that his office no longer will do business with Bank of New York Mellon and State Street Corp. — banks that hold more than $41 billion in international assets owned by four of Ohio’s five pension funds....

....Today, Mandel’s office will choose new banks to act as custodians of the international assets of four Ohio pension funds. Citigroup and JPMorgan Chase are among the banks that submitted proposals to do the work. The Ohio Highway Patrol Retirement System does not have such international assets..... 

According OpenSecrets, Citigroup contributed to the following Ohio candidates:
Name Office Total Contributions
Boehner, John (R-OH) House       $10,000
Tiberi, Patrick J (R-OH) House        $5,000
Mandel, Josh (R-OH) Senate         $2,000
Portman, Rob (R-OH) Senate         $1,000
Renacci, Jim (R-OH) House         $1,000
Stivers, Steve (R-OH) House         $1,000

What a coincidence!
