Ohio! You did it!
Ohio voters defeated Governor Kasich’s union-busting bill SB5 resoundingly-61% said ‘no’ to it and 39% said ‘yes’. I’m with Ohio Senator Nina Turner who said last night on the Ed Show that Kasich should provide an apology.
“He should stand up and apologize to the working men and women of this state for putting them through this foolishness… He owes Ohioans an apology for not working on the #1 issue: JOBS. Apologize to the men and women of this great state!”
The video picks up right where Senator Turner makes her demand:
Kasich and Walker are two right wing peas in a pod who work so closely that they call each other every day. Kasich dropped SB5 on Ohio Wednesday February 9th – 2 days before Walker announced his own bomb bill,Wisconsin Act 10.
Kasich’s failure last night is also Walker’s failure. Ohio’s win is also Wisconsin’s win.
Now that Ohio has snatched away the crown jewel in Kasich’s agenda, they must live with him for 3 more years. (Horrifying thought, actually) They don’t have the power to recall him. But Wisconsin does have the right to recall and recall we will.
We start that particular battle with Walker on November 15th.
