Realfan63, keep selling the myth that Mooney and Ursuline academics are superior to public schools. Nothing like playing D-III playoffs with D-I talent. Woohoo!

As a senior citizen of Austintown I like that I can vote for things that benefit me and are paid for by others.

Great job. Way to beat up on those D-III rural schools.

Pyroc hit the nail on the head. Maybe add, midnight basketball.

Most companies have employees pay a minimum of 15% and many are closer to 30%. Most companies also have smokers pay a much larger piece of their health care because they use far more health care. The public sector is out of control and needs to face the same reality the private sector faces.

You can never have too many public pensions!

As the article states, the only reason public sector unions are still viable is because there isn't any competition for them. Maybe competition in that sector is what is needed. Bring down the costs of services to the citizens who foot the bill. The health care and pensions are far too generous and they will eventually either go bankrupt or raise taxes into the stratosphere to pay for them. Voting yes on 2 starts the ball rolling on reigning in those benefits that are just too costly.

Most Ohio public employees pay nowhere near what private sector employees pay for their own health care benefit. Most private sector workers have no pension but have a 401k instead in which the worker provides most of the funding. The public sector is still in denial and the taxpayers must send a message that the public sector must pay more for their own health care and pension. The taxpayers can no longer fund their own health care and pensions and that of the public workers.
Vote yes on 2.

Claiming that the entire auto industry would have collapsed without a bailout is suspect at best. It does parrot what the bailers want you to believe. Nobody deserves a bonus until the people who paid to bail out GM are made whole. GM's profits are only based on a company that was permitted to circumvent the standard bankruptcy process and jettison all of their debts and obligations. No bonuses for those who owned the GM debt and stock and got the shaft?
Letting government pick winners and losers in the free market opens up a can of worms and moral hazard.
