In a recent TV ad funded by the Republican Governors’ Association, John Kasich claims his “team” is “keeping and creating jobs” in Ohio.

One member of this team is Mark Kvamme, Kasich’s proclaimed “job-creation guru” and now CFO of JobsOhio – the public-private organization created by Kasich and the legislature to help bring more jobs back to Ohio.

According to JobsOhio’s website, the organization’s goal is to “lead Ohio’s job creation efforts by singularly focusing on attracting and retaining jobs

And yet… Job Guru Kvamme repeated something today he’s said multiple times before: “Government doesn’t create jobs. It impedes jobs.”

Can someone remind me again why Kasich is giving , with no oversight or accountability, $100 million in state government money intended for job creation to a guy who claims government can’t create jobs?

 
  • Sorry, this is off topic, but…… Please look back at the Plunderbund post of July 6, 2010.  Kyle Farmer, the teacher featured in the pro-sb5 ad and the chairman of the Fairfield County GOP, was involved in a protest at a speech by Gov. Strickland.  Why am I not surprised?

    straight up rush limbo line, “Government can’t create jobs”…those clowns say that probably 100 times a day…

  • Great catch!

    Because JobsOhio is nothing more than a new corporate welfare check writing mechanism in order to keep it secret.  Thanks for this, it’ll go into the lawsuit.

  • Thanks as usual. When the R’s run things, they just care about creating jobs for other R’s by way of elections. They could care less about jobs.

    They are about wrecking stealing and creating havoc so that their corporate masters can buy us out at pennies on the dollar.

    Govt can create the environment for job creation. It would help if it didn’t give hand outs to the 1% who have robbed us blind for the last 30 years.

    Evil in America brought to us by people who didn’t vote.

    Vote no on Issue 2; I am.

    Rush Limbo wouldn’t have a job if it wasn’t for the government.  After all he failed at being a sports commentator.

    Rush also couldn’t serve in the armed forces because of a medical condition.  He says that it was a boil on his butt, but I’ve heard it was the yellow streak down his back.  Since I would not believe a word he has ever said, I choose the second explanation.

  • I’ll remind you again why Kasich is giving , with no oversight or accountability, $100 million in state government money intended for job creation to a guy who claims government can’t create jobs. BECAUSE HE CAN!!!! He’s a Republican!!!! and the general public made it possible by voting this arse into office!

    Picking the public’s pocket to enrich the lifestyle of the well to do is not “magic”, you curious little humbug.
     
    The only magic around here would be if Kasich decided that he wanted to out do Palin by quitting office after 1 year, you bet-ya! Now go back to your little dungeon and stir up a curse to put on the Gang Of Pirates in Columbus.
