Ohio Gov. Kasich Wants to cut funding for senior in home care
In the Dispatch this morning there was an interesting article detailing the cuts Governor Kasich has proposed in his budget for in home care for poor, elderly citizens. You may remember that during the Governors State of the State address he strongly pointed to the fact that he wanted to be able to make it easier for elderly citizens to stay in their homes, instead of moving into a nursing home to receive nursing care.

Mom and dad can stay at home. Instead of going into a nursing home, go and talk to your mom and dad about going in a nursing home sometime. You know what will happen if they can stay at home and get help? Theyre going to be happier and more comfortable and taxpayers will save a bundle of money.

1. he was lying. what he meant was, it costs more for them to go to a nursing home
so we don't want to have to pay for it. in home care would be cheaper. now he is saying, we don't want to have to pay for that either. suck it seniors.

2. He's already down to 30% approval in the polls
Bad is bad, so what does he have to lose by slipping a few more notches? Pulling the plug on helping Grandma at home is just one tiny piece of Kasich's sinister puzzle. I'm sure he's already weighing the next move.
