‘Funny Money’

Dear Editor,

As President Obama travels the Buckeye State taking credit for creating jobs - he "still" has never explained what happened to those shovel ready jobs.

The truth is, while Gov. John Kasich was chopping the wood - Barack Obama put Ohio's jobs on the chopping block.

More to the point, when Obama was passing out "funny money" for full-blown express trains - Kasich rejected the $400 million in federal funds for Ohio's new rail line.

But asked the Obama Administration if he could use the "stimulus" money for "orange barrell jobs" in Ohio, Obama replied, "it would be better to waste Ohio's money in California; but, for Obama to use taxpayers money in Ohio as a reason for people in California to enjoy seems a little ... well, foolish is the word that comes to mind.

It's a classic example of "cutting off your nose to spite your face."

Barack Obama's war on jobs and the taxpayers in Ohio are just getting started.

Ohioans will soon get thumped by higher taxes in the "Obamacare" law - including the individual mandate tax, which is overwhelmed by other taxes and fees in the law.

People who are swept in a hodgepodge of "hope and change" again ... doesn't make a lick of sense to me.
