Facts about John Kasich

Check out "The Truth About John Kasich" from the Ohio Democratic Party.

Former Congressman, Fox News personality, and investment banker John Kasich is running on the Republican ticket for governor of Ohio.

During his 18 years in Congress, Kasich was an architect of the failed Washington-Wall Street trickle-down policies that got us into this economic mess. He voted to give China favored trade status and supported free trade agreements like NAFTA, both of which cost Ohio thousands of jobs.

Then he went to Wall Street and cashed in on these policies at Lehman Brothers, the firm whose collapse marked the beginning of the global economic crisis.

Now Congressman Kasich wants to bring these failed policies–and his radical agenda–to Ohio.
