News, Opinion, and Media Analysis on Cincinnati, Ohio and the World From a Unique Perspective
Kasich isn't bluffing. The Indiana casinos have hired his partner from Lehman as their lobbyist in Columbus.Why would Indiana businesses need to lobby the Ohio government? What would they be lobbying it to do?This is exactly what Kasich wants.
I'd like to know how many jobs Kasich has killed or wounded.16,000 for the casinos, not including construction (I think that's correct)3,000 for streetcar construction + 25 or so to operate (Which sounds low)Who know's how many he killed by killing the high speed rail lineSo over 20,000 jobs making probably $30K or more at 5% tax rate for Ohio = $30 Million in taxes lost. (Those numbers are rough but probably on the low side).
Don't be an idiot or your post will be deleted.
