    This is excellent news. Though I'm certain the plutocrats won't stop trying.

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The state's new collective bargaining law was defeated Tuesday after an expensive union-backed campaign that pitted firefighters, police officers and teachers against the Republican establishment.

    In a political blow to GOP Gov. John Kasich, voters handily rejected the law, which would have limited the bargaining abilities of 350,000 unionized public workers.

    I heard the Cock Brothers pissing and moaning from their Park Ave townhouses all the way in Houston.

    I'm so proud of my home state, yay Ohio! It's nice to see something good in the international news come out of the Buckeye State instead of things like the zoo animal massacre in Zanesville and random workplace shootings and serial killers ;-)

    As a 'Buckeye', I'm so glad an overwhelming number of Ohioans rejected this. Thanks to our Professional Firefighters, Teachers and Union leaders for getting the truth out there to the voters! We def need to start being more fiscally responsible, but this was NOT the way to save a buck, Kasich!!!
