Compare the success of Ohio to the disaster of Illinois

Both states faced the same budget problem: rapidly declining revenues in the midst of a dramatic economic downturn.

The solution in Illinois: Raise taxes.  The result? Declining revenues, and lost residents and jobs.

The solution in Ohio under Republican Governor Kasich, get spending under control.

The result?  Tax growth, under-spending in Medicaid yields a state surplus.

Market-based, limited government solutions are the best.  It is established.
