Kasich: Automakers blast business climate in Ohio

COLUMBUS — Gov. John Kasich called his meetings with the Detroit Three automakers this week “very sobering” and “in some ways very disturbing,” with two of the three blunt in their assessment of Ohio’s business climate.

“I heard words like ‘not competitive,’” Kasich said today. “I heard words like ‘not cooperative.’ I heard words like ‘created a bad attitude and a bad impression.’”
