Is this what you voted for your Governor to do? (underlining is mine to highlight points):

 John Kasich's new coordinated welfare approach to start with teens, young adults

http://www.cleveland.com/open/index.ssf/2015/01/john_kasichs_new_co...

Gov. John Kasich will propose new approaches for Ohio's welfare programs in the budget he unveils Monday, targeting teens and young adults as part of an effort to intervene at an early age to stop poverty.

The changes would require individual counties, which administer the assistance programs across the state, to designate a lead entity that will be responsible for coordinating help -- assistance programs and job training efforts -- and matching them to clients.

Individual clients would be able to one-stop shop with a caseworker who could connect them with assistance programs and job training needed to get them work.

The initial efforts would target people aged 16 to 24 with the idea of intervening before they get stuck in a cycle of poverty.Those clients would also have to take some personal responsibility,  participating in job training and be willing to help themselves.

The goal is to expand the approach to all Ohioans on public assistance by July 1, 2016. . .

. . .While he discussed the new approach as one that will benefit individuals with the goal of lifting them out of poverty, he also issued a warning for the counties that administer the programs: Get on board or get left behind.

"We get this through, and I think we will, we're going to tell the commissioners (in Ohio's counties) that you will designate a lead agency and someone will be in charge of coordinating everything that involves the person in need," Kasich said. "If counties do not do this, and they do not meet the metrics ... we are going to take every dime of TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) money out of that county and give it to a county that wants to do it, or we will privatize it or we will take it at the state level.". .

NOTE: be sure to read the comments after the article to get a perspective on how some of our fellow OH's feel about this. 

Thoughts???

Comment by Shelley SImms on Friday

This was not the guy I thought I was voting for in 2010.  He has been a horrible disappointment and worse everyday.   He's acting like Obama and doubling down on his medicaid expansion.TIME TO MAKE PHONE CALLS

Comment by Nancy on Thursday

From the article below--looks like it might be time for calls/emails/action:

. . .The governor is expected to include a continuation of his Obamacare expansion in the proposed 2016-2017 budget his office will release Monday. A two-year appropriation for the expansion would likely cost federal taxpayers more than $6 billion.

Ohio House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger, a Clarksville Republican, has signaled surrender to Kasich on the Obamacare expansion.

Comment by Nancy on Thursday

Thanks Gov Kasich. . .

Ohio’s Obamacare expansion has already cost over $2 billion

http://watchdog.org/196206/ohio-obamacare-2billion/

. . .If recent enrollment and cost trends persist, Kasich’s Obamacare expansion will be more than $1 billion over budget by the time Ohio’s 2015 fiscal year ends on June 30. . .

Ohio governor slams Obamacare opponents in Montana

Ohio Gov. John Kasich on Wednesday accused Montana lawmakers of letting poor Montanans die by rejecting Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion.

Kasich’s meeting with state legislators in Helena marked the second Balanced Budget Forever event in as many days where the Republican governor promoted Medicaid expansion and bashed its critics. . .

. . .Although Kasich asserts his Obamacare expansion is funded entirely with Ohio money, the expansion is projected to cost federal taxpayers more than $50 billion in its.... . .

. . .Kasich became visibly annoyed when his Obamacare expansion position was challenged again at a pre....

“John Roberts gave me an opportunity in the Supreme Court for the state to make a decision as to whether they want to reclaim this money or not,” Kasich told state legislators, repeating a line he used in Pierre, S.D., the day before. “There’s no money in Washington, it’s my money, okay? And so, I brought my money back to Ohio.”

As noted above, Kasich’s Obamacare expansion is expected to cost federal taxpayers over $50 billion in new spending through 2022. The only involvement Chief Justice John Roberts and the Supreme Court had in Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion was in empowering states to opt out. . .

Ohio employers paying higher taxes thanks to state’s unemployment debt

Ohio employers are paying higher taxes for unemployment compensation in 2015, a direct result of the state’s failure to repay billions borrowed to cover unemployment benefits during the recession. . .
