And not in a good way. We all get screwed, but only the rich bastards who bribe Kasich and Co. get a happy ending.
You see, Ohio’s 100% Republican-controlled government (Dems have no power at all) has finally cast off the last shred of negligee-like concealment and shown its true colors. We already know they’re not into “freedom”, “opportunity”, “equity”, or any of the other popular GOP buzzwords, by their actions since they seized power a while back. Now we see that they aren’t even business-friendly. Proof:
Not too long ago, a less-partisan Ohio Government offered some tax and regulatory incentives to bring more business to the state, and they worked: thousands of jobs were created in the renewable industry sector, at nearly zero cost to the taxpayers. Classic GOP practice: give business types goodies and reap the rewards. It has worked flawlessly, tons of jobs in wind, solar and geothermal energy are now here in the Buckeye State.
And they are about to be lost because the current regime does not give a shit about anything but padding its offshore bank accounts with bribes from Big Oil: new legislation will allow the state to void any renewable-energy contract it wants to, regardless of what the parties signed in said contracts. That, friends, is burdensome government overreach at its worst, and it is NOT from the Democrats: it is completely Republican in nature.
Kasich and his Kronies are taking big bucks in
bribes campaign contributions from Big Oil and like any bought-and-paid-for whores, are servicing their buyers. By destroying thousands of jobs and shafting investors, they are annihilating the Ohio economy for millions of us, rich and poor and in-between. All while they pocket the cash they have earned, turning tricks for the Johns of the fossil fuel industry.
But hey, the idiots of this state elected one of Wall Street scumbuckets who crashed the economy in 2008 as their Governor, so it’s really no surprise that he and his are doing the same to us today, is it? Whores will be whores, after all.
