In a discussion with NBC’s Chuck Todd, Gov. Ted Strickland was asked about the health care debate and his experience losing his seat in Congress in 1994.
The money quote:
“…the American people do not reward failure.”
With that in mind, consider this:
- Ohio has lost 184,900 jobs over the last 12 months.
- Ohio has lost 339,900 jobs since Ted Strickland became Governor.
- Ohio has lost 399,200 jobs since the last national recession ended in November of 2001. Twenty-three states lost jobs during this period, and only Michigan fared worse than Ohio.
