The taliban leftists aka the demokrat party should be happy with the $1.5 billion increase in education. Instead, they whine over restrictions on killing babies.

That Mary Taylor has got to be one of the best looking babes in politics. Woo whooo!

Really, Gone? and which chamber is controlled by democrats? the inserts to the budget according to Kasich were just find and as he pointed out he "is pro-life" by Kasich's logic anything can be inserted into the budget in bits and pieces with no real connection to appropriations. Each inserted restriction was added at the last minute. but you know gone here is the thing for thirty years repubs have rallied against abortion but never acted on it. At least now that they have gerrymandered their way to controlling the state and the national house of reps they are in a position to do something. The problem is the more they do the more unpopular they will become with the majority of Americans not just with the Christian taliban

If the morning after pill is now available for women of all ages, maybe we can start really talking about women's health care during elections instead of making it all about abortions.

Republicans did not "sneak" anything into the budget. The amendment was voted on and passed by both chambers of the General Assembly and sent to the governor for his signature.

You really ought to ignore Facebook memes and read Gongwer**** or The Columbus Dispatch.

Tessie has a point The times had an opportunity to question Taylor about the abortion thing and apparently didn't. Why not?

If PP got out of the abortion business, Republicans would stand in line to support it. Don’t confuse women’s health care and abortion. The lefties have intertwined the two so it is like you can’t have one without the other. Have stand alone abortion clinics and get PP out of the abortion business and the money will come.

I agree Asknot! Abortion is a small but significant part of what Republican's sneaked into the budget. Their goal is to get enough states to challenge Roe v. Wade and overturn the law. The larger thing is defunding Planned Parenthood which provides healthcare for many women: pap tests, mammograms, contraception, STI's and so on. By denying contraception they are creating the need for abortion. Instead they will fund Crisis Pregnancy Centers ran by right wing Christian zealots. All these centers do is preach abstinence and force women to carry an unwanted fetus, birth and support a child who may be severely disabled and who is not welcome or wanted. Every woman in Ohio should be angry that politicians are making decisions about women's healthcare, regardless of identifying as "Pro-life" or "Pro-choice". Why was this subject not reported by the MT or by the reporter?

There is not one 'new' word or phrase a politician can say in the US...except for maybe..."this needs re-worked by young people"...

We live in Athens but do nearly all of our Christmas shopping in Marietta. Why ruin that magic Christmas feeling by being subjected to Columbus or malls in general? It's a wonderful experience and at least half of our purchases are from Schafer's. I was happy to see them get the very well deserved recognition.

I would like to ask the Lt. Gov. if she really believes the stuff she said.
