OH Gov Kasich the Bully: Accept My 6.5% Tax or Risk a 10%+ Tax

no bullyingWow. We’re kind of speechless. Ohio Gov. John Kasich (RINO) sure is a sore loser. And a vicious one too. Get this: Kasich is now saying if the oil and gas industry doesn’t lay down and take the high severance tax he’s proposing, some “citizen group or aspiring politician” will probably (wink wink nod nod) push for a ballot measure in the state to create such a tax. And if that happens, his measly 6.5% severance tax will look darned good compared to the 10% or more those wild citizen groups will no doubt push for (see OH Gov. Kasich Increases Proposed Severance Tax Rate by 236%). That is, Kasich just threatened the oil and gas industry with a 10%+ severance tax if they don’t accept his tax in this year’s budget. Talk about a bully! We’re used to this from Democrats, but not from so-called Republicans…
