Figures fail at both ends of this claim
Says Gov. John Kasich incorrectly claimed Ohio’s economy was 38th in the nation when he took office. "We were sixth in the nation in terms of economic job growth."
Other people, like President Clinton, also favored these deals
"Kasich’s trade deals cost Ohio thousands of jobs - 49,000 jobs to Mexico, 91,000 to China."
Count is at least $1 billion short
About $4.89 billion in one-time money was used to balance the current state general revenue fund budget.
State funding actually is reduced
"In Ohio, we invested in our children, raising school funding by 5.5 percent in the last budget."
