We’ve been waiting for weeks to hear what the Ohio Chamber of Commerce thinks of Kasich’s plan to expand Ohio’s sales tax to nearly every business in the state.

Today we found out.

As reported by Gongwer, the Chamber’s┬áDan Navin called the sales tax expansion “an overall ‘unhealthy shift’ of the tax burden to Ohio’s employers.”

The Chamber has been a staunch supporter of John Kasich since he announced his plan to run for Governor. The group supported Senate Bill 5 and Kasich’s failed private prison experiment.

Not so much with his anti-business sales tax plan.

Representatives of the extremely-conservative┬áNational Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) also spoke against Kasich’s tax plan at committee hearings today.

Add the Chamber and NFIB to the list of nearly 20 other business groups opposing the Governor’s tax plan, and we seem to have a consensus here: John Kasich’s sales tax expansion is bad for business in Ohio.

  • We have yet another consensus: John Kasich is bad for Ohio.

    Wait a minute. Johnny Boy is going to save Ohio at the speed of business. So his plan must be right. No?

    Read a reaction by the real estate community pointing out that all services related to home sales will be taxed under Kasich’s plan. This should put a fork in the real estate market. The lower sales tax combined with taxing of services is a shell game with confusion being the main result. John Kasich- making new friends everyday. Hope all factions remember his deeds the next election.
