Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Niles) has put up some interesting figures that show how the President's proposed Federal budget will reduce expenditures for Ohio by nearly $223 million in Fiscal Year 2009. And this does not include the unfunded mandates I discussed last week!
Republicans ought to feel thoroughly cheated by this Administration. Our economic situation is grave, and getting worse, but the President whose election was supposedly vouchsafed in Ohio is biting hard one of the hands that fed him.
It's almost as though Washington thinks we're not Americans. Maybe we shouldn't be...
My thanks to the Buckeye State Blog for bringing Rep. Ryan's statistics to my attention.
