Liberals claim Issue 2 was a referendum on Governor John Kasich’s first year in office, so then was Issue 3 a referendum on President Obama – who is actually on the ballot in Ohio next year? Keeping the union reforms of Senate Bill 5 on the books (Issue 2) may have lost, but Obamacare’s health care mandate (Issue 3) lost in all 88 of 88 Ohio counties. Maybe that’s the real lesson coming out of Ohio today.
The other thing to remember is that Ohio still has huge budget problems. It was the failing status quo that won on Issue 2 yesterday, after all. When Ohio goes bankrupt, how then will John Kasich’s courageous reforms be seen?
We at Citizens United are proud of the principled stand we took in favor of Issue 2.
