    finance, didn't share productivity gains with workers, had a high tech bubble, an energy bubble, a stock bubble, and a housing bubble that crashed in Florida and triggered a global financial crash.

      To Kasich, this bond deal is less about economic development and more about securing enough one-time money to create a budget that he thinks will get him reelected in 2014 – including an income tax cut that will likely benefit the wealthy.
      Seems like it is a backdoor tax cut for the rich, relying on future profits of a "sin" industry.

      Kasich can't balance the budget, but desperately wants to campaign on cutting taxes.

        No, it's a full, frontal tax cut for the rich, and. it's been estimated, about a $30-$40 tax cut for someone like me making less than $50,000 a year. Want to know how much my taxes have gone up so far since Taxin' John Kasich has been in office? $250 every year in property taxes, thanks to his state cuts to eduction funding which went instead into the pockets of his cronies and donors at the failing for-profit charter schools that have made Ohio's charters the shame of the nation.

        His defeat is in my sights. Taxin' John is going down if I have anything to say about it. All he has done is steal, steal, steal from the citizens of Ohio to enrich his donors.

        Jon Husted is a dick.
