|While President Obama pushes for more of the same failed “stimulus” policies, Ohio Governor John Kasich says Washington could learn from Ohio’s success in closing the largest budget shortfall in its history without raising taxes. “The playbook we’re following here in Ohio is simple,” says Kasich in the Weekly Republican Address. To create jobs and economic growth, “you have to tax less, spend less, and regulate less. If we can do it here in Ohio, Washington can – and should – do it also.” Watch the address and read more below:
