All Half-True statements involving John Kasich

Says "Detroit dumping a bunch of sewage" in Lake Erie "causes big problems" for Ohio.

"The total (state) payroll has gone down. The total amount of the number of workers in the state has gone down. I like the fact that the bulk of that is just by retirements."

"In this bill that I’ve just signed, we don’t cut anybody’s salary. We don’t take away their pension. And we don’t destroy their health care."

Ohio Director of Job Creation "Mark Kvamme just clawed back about $900,000 from companies that made promises and they didn't keep them."

"They tried to give us $400 million to build a high-speed train that goes 39 miles an hour."

John Kasich says he won, despite "12 visits by a president, somewhere between $45 (million) and $50 million (spent against him,) 500 paid volunteers in here calling me every name in the book, former presidents, first ladies and God-knows-who-else."  

"(John) Kasich was the architect who balanced the budget, cut spending, created a surplus, igniting record job creation."

"The total number of dollars that passes through the Department of Development is like $900 million and like $650 (million) of it has nothing to do with development, which is breathtaking when you think about it."

"You can’t raise taxes in Ohio. We are one of the highest taxed states in the country."
