Worth a Read: Behind the Scenes of Ohio Gov’s Veto

Posted on July 10, 2007 In Blog

The Plain Dealer’s Thomas Suddes looks past the smoke and mirrors of Ohio Gov. Strickland’s veto of a special ed voucher program.

With a history of Ohio’s aid to private and parochial students to get the reader into the right frame of mind – for examples they’ve been getting busing since the 1960’s, they have a fully constitutional voucher program in Cleveland etc. Suddes points out, without a hint of irony that “Yet predictable though it was, that line-item veto told Ohio parents that Republicans are more likely to empower them than a governor who belongs to the party of choice on abortion – but not on schooling.”
