    Kasich turns down federal disaster aid | Cincinnati.com | cincinnati.com

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich said thanks but no thanks to immediate federal disaster relief Saturday, even as governors in Indiana and Kentucky welcomed the help.

    Kasich did not rule out asking for assistance later, but his decision means tornado-ravaged towns in Ohio will not get federal aid now and are not eligible at this time for potentially millions of dollars in payments and loans.

    That is reprehensible. The citizens of Ohio pay for the right to receive federal aid when it is warranted by circumstances.

    Kasich has no right to deny them resources that are theirs.

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich is simply being Republican.

    I can see him now ---> Fuck those people. I don't care if they suffer. I have political points to score. They could die for all I care. They're not even rich.

    This is probably the first time I've agreed with Kasich on anything. At least to my memory. Who needs them getting in the way of the recovery?

    The people aren't going to suffer without the Federal Government. Quite the Opposite. Without the Federal Government in the way, you will see true charity take place.

    The people hurt by the disasters aren't sad hopeless victims. They are grateful people full of hope.

    Well he's reconsidered so now there will be threads if he does take money that he took FEMA money even though he is a critic of the Federal Government. It won't matter what he does cause he is Republican and will be criticized.
