John Curry to Rep. Cliff Hite: Tell us where the money will come from!

From John Curry, June 30, 2008
Subject: So Cliff....maybe you can explain where the $$ will come from in the interim!

"Ohio House Republicans who want to eliminate the state income tax should explain how they would fill a $9.1 billion hole in the annual budget. The tax supplies 43 percent of all state revenues." Columbus Dispatch (6-30-08)

Honorable Cliff Hite
State Representative
Ohio's 76th District

Cliff, as my district's Representative maybe you can explain where Ohio's public services such as education, fire, police, and other public services will get operating funds while we're waiting for new businesses to flock to Ohio should this bill become law. Methinks you and some of your other GOP colleagues have taken loss of your senses it just grandstanding in an election year? If you are unable to tell me how this will be accomplished maybe one of your 18 other GOP sponsors of HB 534 can: Adams, Collier, Setzer, Wagner, Brinkman, Dolan, Huffman, Fessler, Zehringer, Goodwin, Bacon, Combs, Batchelder, Hottinger, Uecker, Wachtmann, Widowfield, Coley.
