John Kasich likes to talk big about his private sector success but the fact is: it’s all a bunch of crap.
From the day he was born in 1952, until the day he dies, John Kasich has and will be receiving taxpayer money.
His Dad worked for the Postal Service – meaning John’s entire childhood was funded by tax payers.
He then went to OSU – a public university.
And his first job out of college was in politics, working as a legislative aide to disgraced congressman (then State Senator) Buz Lukens.
Then State Senator himself. Then U.S. Congress until 2001.
From 1952 until 2001 John Kasich’s entire life was funded by tax payers.
And… guess what?
It doesn’t stop there.
On top of the Congressional Pension, which John Kasich will receive until the day he dies, he also started “working” for OSU the same year he left Congress.
According to the Dayton Daily News:
Kasich was paid $50,000 a year for roughly one to four visits a month…
By comparison, full-time assistant professors at Ohio State had an average base salary of $64,410.86
Yes. You read that right.
John Kasich was paid more money per year than the average Ohioan just to randomly show up on campus and give crappy speeches to OSU students. John Kasich – a guy with nothing more than a BA in Political Science – was paid more per year to work one day a month than FULL-TIME ASSISTANT PROFESSORS with PhDs.
I know I’ve said this before but it certainly seems worth repeating: when John Kasich says he worked hard (in the private sector) for everything he earned in life he is absolutely, positively full of shit.
