...Republican John Kasich on March 14 called for higher taxes on oil and gas drillers and environmental rules that his administration says no other state requires.
As a result, Kasich, 59, a former U.S. congressman, Fox News commentator and Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. investment banker, is fighting his own party over a plan that he says would ensure that Ohioans, not just out-of-state corporate shareholders, benefit from an energy boom.
“I’m the party line now, you know?” Kasich said in a March 29 interview in Columbus, the capital. “I’ve never been uncomfortable with traveling a lonely road. I think that’s what leaders do.”
Yeah, right. John Kasich is the face of the Ohio Republican Party. Do you like him? Do you like how he has cut funding for public schools? Do you like how he has blamed teachers, firefighters, police officers, nurses, and state employees for all the financial problems in the state?
When you vote for a Republican in Ohio you just give more power to John Kasich. That gives me a head ache just thinking about Kasich with more power.
