Republican Voinovich Jumps On Obama Bill

GOP senator ready to give on business-incentives measure; The Boston Globe

Retiring Republican Senator George Voinovich said he plans to help push a package of small-business incentives through the Senate next week, a move that would give President Obama and congressional Democrats a key victory on the economy in the final weeks before the November midterm elections.

In an interview, Voinovich said he could no longer support efforts by Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky to delay the measure in hopes of winning the right to offer additional GOP amendments. Most of the proposed amendments “didn’t have anything to do with the bill,’’ anyway, Voinovich said, and amounted merely to partisan “messaging.’’

Voinovich and the Ohio Republicans are in large part the reason Ohio has been in a depression for well over 10 years, and this due to the stupidity of government intervention.

From Jim Rhodes to Ted Strickland, with George Voinovich in between and with both parties, have expanded the state government, over taxed the residents and business making Ohio a world class dump. We have no industry, no small business, and our agriculture is going down the toilet. All because of these big government socialists. And yes, Voinovich is a socialist you stupid REPUBLICANS!
