            We should being concentrating on what we have to do to get rid of Kaisch. A year ago I listened to him for two months tell us this is about jobs, jobs, jobs and we have been losing all kinds of jobs. I listened to him, I voted for him and I don't know how many times i've been told how stupid I am for voting for him. Don't tell me I'm stupid it's very easy for me to see how stupid I am and I will not be that stupid again. It looks like I have to listen to him blow off his mouth for another two months, but I learned my lesson.

            About Senate Bill 5, we read about Senate caucus employees getting pay raises. This is supposed to be because experienced staff members began leaving. What could we possibly be losing in the State House in Columbus,we have thousands and thousands of people in Ohio who could go into the State House and do those jobs. What we have to protect is our Firemen, Policemen, and School Teachers. These are the people we can't afford to lose, the people who need the education, and cannot be easily replaced. Senate Bill 5 is the same as taking away freedom of speech.
