Working Ohio Against John Kasich! • 03.31.11
Back in February, Ohio Governor John Kasich gave “props to @GovWalker” for Scott Walker’s legislation to destroy labor unions in Wisconsin. Now, Kasich has pulled a Walker in Ohio, having the Ohio state legislature pass union-busting legislation that he’s pledged to sign into law.
Kasich is hitting working Ohioans with a double whammy, with budget cuts targeted against the lower middle class just as he’s taking away collective bargaining rights. A writer for Blue Wave News comments, “I mostly feel a compassionate sadness for the people in Ohio who are being or will be hurt by Kasich’s reign over the state. You see, Ohio doesn’t have any legal provisions for recalling its governor, or any other elected state official. It doesn’t matter how much damage he does to working people or the poor or the economy of the state. It doesn’t matter how much further his job approval plummets or how angry he makes independent voters, or even his own Republican voters. Ohio is stuck with John Kasich for four long years.”
Ohio may be stuck with Kasich, but Ohio voters can influence the political process to keep Kasich in a corner. Electing an anti-Kasich legislature is the first step in the process. Spread the word of an Ohio revolt with this Working Ohio Against Kasich bumper sticker.
