OHIO LEGISLATORS/GOVERNOR ARE LYING TO TRY AND KEEP THEIR JOBS 

  October 31, 2002 

  TO:  Ohio Governor and Legislators 

  HOW MANY TAXES HAVE BEEN CUT OR LOWERED TO SAVE OR CREATE JOBS IN OHIO?  ZERO ! 

  Yet many campaign commercials are stating just that - - Representative (X) or Senator (X) cut 
  taxes and created or saved jobs in Ohio.  NO TAXES HAVE BEEN LOWERED OR CUT FOR ANY
  TYPE OF BUSINESS, LARGE OR SMALL IN OHIO. 

  There are candidates who are referring to their opponents as "TAX HIKE (X)".  When in reality, 
  they have been voting in many TAX-INCREASES themselves, yet these are the same legislators 
  who are taking the credit for lowering taxes and creating jobs in Ohio. 

  THE TRUTH IS HIDDEN FROM THE VOTER!  When a Ohio Legislator and/or Governor is taking the
  credit for a project that "created or saved jobs in Ohio by cutting-taxes", they are really talking
  about giving another "tax-credit" to a business to either stop them from moving out of the State 
  of Ohio, or to expand within Ohio, or to locate into Ohio.  THIS IS NOT A TAX-REDUCTION SINCE
  THE STATE OF OHIO IS MAKING A COMMITMENT TO THE CITIES, SCHOOLS AND COUNTY
  GOVERNMENTS THAT THEY WILL REIMBURSE THEM FOR THAT TAX-CREDIT! 

  WHERE DOES THE STATE OF OHIO GET THE MONEY TO PAY FOR THOSE TAX-CREDITS???  It's
  simple, they need to keep taxation rates higher for other Ohio Businesses and/or the Ohio
  Individual Taxpayers, or even create "NEW" taxation for Ohio Businesses and/or the Ohio
  Individuals to get those needed funds. 

  WHAT HAS DRIVEN THE STATE OF OHIO IN THE RED IS THE HIGH AMOUNT OF "TAX-CREDITS"
  BEING HANDED RIGHT AND LEFT BY THE CURRENT OHIO LEGISLATORS/GOVERNOR IN THE
  NAME OF CREATING AND/OR SAVING JOBS IN OHIO!  WHILE AT THE SAME TIME, THE SOFT
  ECONOMY HAS LEFT THE OTHER TAXATION REVENUE METHODS SHORT OF PRODUCING
  ENOUGH REVENUES FOR THEIR INTENDED USES, AND ALSO HAVE THE NEEDED FUNDS FOR
  REIMBURSING THE OTHER GOVERNMENTAL ENTITIES AND/OR SCHOOLS WITHIN OHIO FOR
  THOSE "TAX-CREDITS". 

  THESE SAME LEGISLATORS/GOVERNOR VOTED IN (PASSED AND SIGNED)/USED THE
  FOLLOWING METHODS TO INCREASE THE STATE OF OHIO GRF TAXATION REVENUES/FUNDS
  (WITHIN THE PAST TWO YEARS) TO HELP PAY FOR THOSE "TAX-CREDITS": 1.) RAISED THE
  CIGARETTE TAX TWO HUNDRED TWENTY NINE PERCENT;  2.) REQUIRED ALL SALES-TAX BE
  PAID "UP-FRONT" IN ALL LEASES (VEHICLES AND ALL TYPES OF BUSINESS EQUIPMENT);  3.)
  CREATE A NEW "INCOME-TAX" ON TRUST;  4.) CASH-IN THE ENTIRE "RAINY-DAY FUND;  5.)
  MISAPPROPRIATED HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF THE TOBACCO SETTLEMENT BY
  USING IT FOR GRF FUNDS TO BALANCE THE BUDGET, INSTEAD OF HELPING OHIO SMOKERS
  "KICK-THE-HABIT"! 

  IT SEEMS EVERY AD THAT HAS A INCUMBENT/CANDIDATE RUNNING FOR AN OHIO
  LEGISLATIVE POSITION WHICH IS CLAIMING THEY EITHER DID AND/OR WANT TO LOWER
  TAXES TO CREATE JOBS HERE IN OHIO ARE BEING PAID FOR BY THE REPUBLICIAN-PARTY
  (RICHARD FINAN OR LARRY HOUSEHOLDER FINANCE COMMITTEES).  THIS WAS DONE WHILE
  HAVING A "OHIO BALANCED BUDGET", SO THEY CLAIM! 

  EVEN REPRESENTATIVE CHARLES CALVERT (CHAIRMAN OF OHIO FINANCE COMMITTEE)
  TOLD ME, AND EVERYONE AT THE MEDINA COUNTY CANDIDATES FORUM THIS MONTH, THAT
  OHIO DOESN'T HAVE A BUDGET PROBLEM, AND THAT THE NEWSPAPERS SIMPLY HAVE IT
  BLOWN OUT-OF-PROPORTION.  SO WHO'S LYING? 

  NOT ONE CANDIDATE/INCUMBENT IN OHIO SEEMS TO BE INTERESTED IN KEEPING OHIO
  BUSINESSES COMPETITIVE, ESPECIALLY WITH THE OHIO CONSUMERS.  WHEN TWO-THIRDS 
  OF THIS NATIONS ECONOMY IS DRIVEN BY THE CONSUMER, ISN'T THIS REALLY STUPID? 

  JUST HOW MUCH RED INK IS THE OHIO GOVERNMENT INTO???  NOBODY IS COMING OUT
  WITH THE FACTS!  EVEN THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH, METRO SECTION (OCTOBER 30, 2002)
  WANTS TO KNOW WHAT GOVERNOR BOB TAFT IS HIDING, OR IS HE JUST AFRAID OF WHAT
  THE VOTERS MIGHT THINK OF THE JOB HE IS DOING, IF THEY KNEW? 

  THERE ARE MONTHLY REPORTS AVAILABLE ON THE OHIO BUDGET AND MANAGEMENT
  WEBSITE.  THEY GIVE THE FIGURES FOR ALL GRF RECEIPTS, AS WELL AS, ALL GRF
  DISBURSEMENTS.  THAT'S THE SAME AS HOW MUCH MONEY WAS COLLECTED, AND HOW
  MUCH MONEY WAS SPENT.  IT DOES NOT SHOW HOW MUCH THE STATE OF OHIO OWES (OR
  IS COMMITTED TO PAY)!  JUST HOW BIG IS THAT STACK OF BILLS (OR COMMITMENT)
  CURRENTLY?  WHAT EFFECTS ARE THE "TAX-CREDITS" HAVING ON OTHER OBLIGATIONS.  
  APPARENTLY THAT IS TOP SECRETE INFORMATION. 

  HAS THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IN COLUMBUS, WHO HAVE BEEN HANDING OUT "TAX-CREDITS"
  RIGHT AND LEFT PUTTING OHIO DEEP INTO THE RED, PROVIDED MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF
  CAMPAIGN MONIES TO TRY AND CHANGE THE OHIO SUPREME-COURT MAKEUP, SO THEY CAN
  TRY, AT A LATER DATE, REVERSE THE DECISION THAT COURT MADE WITH THE OHIO SCHOOL
  FUNDING ISSUE (THAT THEY HAVE ALSO BEEN IGNORING)? 

  THE CURRENT OHIO GOVERNOR/LEGISLATORS ARE ALSO IGNORING THE FACT THAT OHIO
  RETAILERS HAVE BEEN LOSING BILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF SALES FROM THE OHIO
  CONSUMERS FOR MANY YEARS, AND THAT THE CURRENT TAXATION METHODS IN OHIO
  ABSOLUTELY AND DIRECTLY EFFECT CONSUMER SPENDING WITHIN THE STATE OF OHIO. 
  THEY HAVE ALSO IGNORED THE RECOMMENDATIONS MADE BY THE COMMITTEES TO STUDY
  STATE AND LOCAL TAXATION FOR THE PAST 35 YEARS, WHICH ALL OF THEM HAVE INDICATED
  THAT THE STATE OF OHIO TAXATION METHODS ARE NOT FAVORABLE FOR ECONOMIC
  DEVELOPMENT (THE MOST RECENT COMMITTEE WAS IN 1995). 

  HOW CAN YOU BRAG ABOUT CUTTING-TAXES AND SAVING AND/OR CREATING JOBS IN OHIO
  WHILE KEEPING THE OHIO BUDGET "BALANCED", WHILE AT THE SAME TIME, PUTTING MORE
  BURDENS ONTO OTHER OHIO BUSINESSES, AS WELL AS, INCREASE THE TAXES OF OHIO
  INDIVIDUAL TAXPAYERS??? 

  THE OHIO VOTER WILL NOT BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND THE ABSOLUTE MESS WHICH HAS BEEN
  CREATED IN COLUMBUS BY OUR CURRENT LEGISLATORS AND GOVERNOR.  HOW CAN YOU
  MAKE TAXATION FAIR IF YOU KEEP GIVING "TAX-BREAKS" TO A FEW, BUT MAKE EVERYONE
  ELSE PAY FOR THOSE BREAKS. 

  TODAY, EVERYONE IS CONFUSED ABOUT WHO TO VOTE FOR, BUT, I'LL BET THAT WAS THE
  GAME PLAN. 

  I GUESS IT IS TRUE ABOUT THE OLD SAYING - - HOW CAN YOU TELL IF A POLITICIAN IS LYING,
  THEIR LIPS ARE MOVING (PERHAPS IT ALSO APPLIES TO HOW MANY ADS THEY CAN AFFORD). 

  CONGRATULATIONS.
