Life, Liberty, and the Firearms that protect them both

Oh look, another big-government Republican

Gov. Kasich announced today that as long as everyone else is sucking on a fat new government entitlement, Ohio might as well too.  Well his exact words were:

“We are going to extend Medicaid for the working poor and for those who are jobless trying to find work,”

“It makes great sense for the state of Ohio because it will allow us to provide greater care with our own dollars.”

Actually, other people’s dollars. You know, Federal tax dollars.

We give the Federal government money in taxes, so it can give it to the state (so long as the state does as it is told), so it in turn can spend it on us (so long as we do as we are told).  Could this be any more inefficient?  How much of this money got pissed away by the bureaucratic process?

I can’t even pretend I’m surprised.  We all knew he was an establishment Republican when we elected him.  Lucky for him that Strickland was incompetent; even the big liberal newspapers abandoned Strickland, he was such an awful fiscal steward.

I suppose I am being rather unfair.  Kasich is a result, not the cause.  I just have to look back at my state’s collective vote to keep getting shafted by public sector unions.  That’s the problem: Ohio is loaded with people who think only of what they can take, and I’m not just talking about Democrats.

I swear Texas gets more temping with each passing day.
