By Phil Burress
CCV Action has warned over and over again that a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate (or President) can not win Ohio if they support same-sex unions. Portman, because of pride and ego, is running the risk of the Republicans losing the U.S. Senate in 2017. If he wanted to flip flop his position because of his son that is fine, but he should have resigned […]

I will not accept 80% – I want 100%

I’m tired of the establishment Republicans telling me that if I like 80% of the candidate, then I should jump in and give 100% support – BULL CRAP.

I want 100%.  When I hire an employee,  we define the job,  I don’t want it 80% complete,  I want it 100% complete.

When I hire someone to fix my roof,  I want 100% fixed, not 80%

When I buy a new car,  I don’t want a car that […]

Portman says YES to giving up the power that we elected him to uphold

Sen Rob Portman voted YES moves the FAST TRACK bill one step closer to allowing President Obama to authorize ALL trade agreement treaties.

Kasich Administration Reduces Medicaid Services for Developmentally Disabled

While Governor Kasich talks of renewing Medicaid expansion for abled bodied adults, his Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) is quietly reducing Medicaid services for Ohio’s developmentally disabled population.

Republican Lawmakers Appear Leery of Renewing Obamacare Medicaid Expansion

The time is fast approaching when Governor Kasich will release his proposed budget for the 2016-2017 biennium. When he does, he is expected to include a two year renewal of Obamacare Medicaid expansion – the expansion you will remember which Kasich forced through the Controlling Board against the wishes of the state legislature.

Kasich has been beating the drum for the renewal of expansion for some months talking again about his faith driving him to […]
