AFP-Ohio Statement on Gov. Kasich's Budget Proposal: Mixed Bag
“While we continue to study the budget details, it is clear that the Governor’s biennial budget proposal offers Ohioans a mixed bag,” explained Seth Morgan, policy director of Americans for Prosperity – Ohio. “The promise of tax reforms and reductions are positive but paying for them in part with increasing severance taxes on farmers with oil and gas under their land is a mistake. Additionally, increasing the number of Ohioans on the rolls of Medicaid is not real health care reform and will ultimately trap Ohioans in a system that badly needs patient-centered reform.”
“We look forward to engaging with Ohio’s policy makers to limit the reach of government into Ohioans’ lives and pocketbooks,” Morgan continued.
