Says facts show too many Ohioans can't get ahead

State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) today reacted to Governor Kasich’s State of the State address, saying that the reality on the ground for working people does not match the rosy picture painted by the governor Wednesday night in Marietta.

“Despite the governor’s rhetoric, too many Ohioans are finding it hard to get ahead. Our state’s economic growth continues to lag the nation, and Ohio workers have yet to see gains in wages and employment. The state of our state sees schools that remain chronically underfunded and local communities that are still reeling from record cuts in order to balance this administration’s checkbook. And in a purely political move, Governor Kasich defunded Planned Parenthood, undercutting Ohio’s women and threatening their access to care in the process. So when Governor Kasich says there is an ‘Ohio miracle,’ I can only ask, ‘where?’”
