Kasich - Lehman Bros crook, Koch puppet - give back the stolen funds!

Quinnipiac: Opposition To Ohio's SB 5 Grows; Women, Union Members Push Kasich Deeper In Hole - ProgressOhio: "If the election were held Tuesday instead of in two weeks, a solid majority of Ohioans would vote to reject the state's new law restricting collective bargaining by government workers.

The latest poll from Connecticut's Quinnipiac University released Tuesday showed a 25-point gap between opposition and support for Senate Bill 5, which appears on the Nov. 8 ballot as Issue 2. That's nearly double the 13-point gap seen about a month ago when the poll showed momentum shifting to the side of those trying to save the law."

RTA should provide free transportation for all

RTA should provide free transportation for all: "Fares provide only 16 percent of RTA’s operating budget. The rest comes from taxes of one kind or another. Why can’t taxes provide the other 16 percent?
Eliminating fares would offer the following advantages:
• Bus travel time would be reduced, as the driver would not have to wait while passengers paid fares. This would also save fuel.
• Coins would not have to be counted.
• Those most in need of financial help would benefit.
• Many may choose the bus rather than their cars, saving fuel, traffic and parking spaces.
Fare-free public transportation would send a message that Dayton cares about its citizens.
