The truth about Kasich's OH record
In this video Thom Hartmann talks with OH Congressman Tim Ryan to explore Kasich's actual policies. They are a very different story than the spin, like attacks on workers rights to collectively bargain. Kasich claims he turned around Ohio's economy when in fact it was Obama's stimulus package that did so. Kasich was against that stimulus but took it and claimed his efforts improved matters. Kasich was also against the auto bailout, which also brought jobs back to OH, again taking credit for something he opposed. Even given all that, OH is still having sub-par growth compared with the rest of the nation. His and his Party's policies gutted local community funds for schools. Meanwhile that funding goes to private charter schools, which are some of the worst performing in the country.
