It's not always cool to be in the Top Ten

The Columbus Dispatch is reporting today that Ohio is number THREE nationally for food insecurity. Makes me proud to be an Ohio resident for sure. According to the article, "Advocates for the poor blame the increase on a state decision to cut off food stamps to tens of thousands of Ohioans."

“Wage stagnation, unemployment or underemployment, part-time or contingent work – this is the new norm for Ohio,” said Lisa Hamler-Fugitt, executive director of the Ohio Association of Foodbanks.


Boy, oh, boy, sure glad that Kasich is working to bring his compassionate conservatism to the rest of the country.

1. Terrible. Ohio's one of America's great places. I hate the 35 year changes in the US, for the worse.

And the Disgrace bears part of the blame for pushing the Republican line that has done this.
