Governor Rips Nursing-home Lobby, Says Tax Cut Possible in '12


In a suburban Cincinnati facility where tooling for engines used by the military is made, Gov. John Kasich unleashed a volley of verbal missiles at Ohio's nursing-home lobby yesterday.

Kasich, whose speech was scheduled as an event to stump for his two-year, $55.6 billion budget proposal, also said that if the state holds the line on spending this year, "we will have a tax cut next year."

The governor declined to disclose the type or amount of tax cut after his speech. He has in the past floated the idea of eliminating Ohio's income tax.

But Kasich was largely focused on the nursing-home lobby, which got his attention with an ad paid for by the Ohio Health Care Association that began airing on Friday.
