In June, the state legislature passed and Governor Kasich signed into law HB 487, the mid-
biennium budget review for education. We were told by the press and by our state legislators that the bill would address many issues Common Core opponents have raised, including privacy concerns over the collection and sharing of student data.
A June 3rd Gongwer report outlined the ways in which HB 487 would protect student privacy:
Prohibits collection of […]

Ohio Project volunteers will enjoy reading Phil Gramm’s July 24th editorial in the Wall Street Journal. Mr. Gramm offers Republicans a strategy for defeating Obamacare, one that Ohioans know is popular with a wide sector of the population – allowing people to choose (or not to choose) their own health-care coverage. Gramm writes,
“…there is one unifying principle that Republicans can and should rally around now: the right of American families to choose their own […]
Liberty-minded folks should take heart that the fight against Obamacare and for health care freedom is far from over. Two conflicting appeals court rulings were handed down today which show that the Affordable Care Act is not settled law by any stretch of the imagination.

Jason Hart of Media Trackers shows us that a picture’s worth a thousand words in his recent tweet. Hart provides a chart which juxtaposes Governor Kasich’s net job creation record with his Obamacare Medicaid expansion enrollment.
Numbers don’t lie. It looks like the Governor has been more successful increasing government dependency than he has been at setting Ohioans on the course to financial independence.
Ohio Medicaid has released its June 2014 caseload report which informs us […]

This week I had a chance to speak with the most amazing person. Her name is Julie Patrick and she is Chairperson of the Marshall County, Mississippi Republican Party. Before all the election shenanigans surrounding Thad Cochran, her citizen-led local party censured him for not standing on principle as an elected Republican official. “Thad Cochran
Despite a couple of quotes likening the tea party to a sleeper cell and a bad cholesterol reading, the Cincinnati Enquirer writes a nice piece about the tea party’s strength in Southwest Ohio with some quotes from some familiar liberty group members.
The Enquirer mentions two recent tea party wins – in Warren county where 12 of the 13 GOP leadership positions went to the tea party and in Clermont county where all six of […]
