Issue 1- Raise the age at which Ohio Supreme Court justices can be seated? To be honest, I can't name any of the justices. No one can unless your in a poli sci class at YSU right now. They might as well be the Illuminati for as much power as they swing without anyone knowing who they are. But I know seventy is old enough to ask them to stop being seated. Increasing the age at which justices can be seated to to seventy five serves no good purpose because it allow justices to still be on the bench in their eighties. If people are thinking about taking grandpa's drivers license at that age I can't imagine allowing him making decisions on state law.
Issue 2- SB5 is a ridiculous attempt by the Kasich administration to remove power from local municipalities and state workers by consolidating it in Columbus. Local school boards are perfectly capable of negotiating with teacher's unions. City councils can negotiate with cops and fireman. If you don't like the outcome of those negotiations, stop electing the people in those positions. And while we're at it, stop demonizing state workers because they make more money than you. Go back to school, earn a degree and get a better job. No one ever said you have to make crap money doing a job you hate forever. Your personal situation is your fault. Stop taking it out on the DMV clerk because they have better benefits than you.
Issue 3- This is just a ridiculous attempt to make people think they have a choice on Obamacare. The backers on this issue want you to think you can stop the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. You can't. The legality of requiring people to purchase health insurance if their employer doesn't provide it will be settled in the U.S. Supreme Court. If it is found unconstitutional, no one has to buy anything. If it is found to be constitutional, Issue 3 is irrelevant because federal law trumps state law. That means you've got to buy health insurance and stop sponging off the rest of us at the emergency room.Vote 'No' just to let Washington know we recognize there is a health care crisis and something needs to be done.
How does it feel?
