Stuff My Brain Says #13

Someone needs to explain to my why it is okay for Ohio Governor John Kasich to raise his staff's salaries without permission of the very taxpayers who pay their salaries, but demands that public-sector unions not be allowed to negotiate raises because those are doled out without the taxpayers' permission. Sounds contradictory to me!

Oh, I got it: the increases were offset by cutting the salaries of receptionists, and administrative assistants! Yeah, that makes it all better.

Maybe the way to get Ohio out of its financial slump is to give Governor Kasich and his staff a much-larger pay raise.

Better yet: they talk merit pay for teachers? How about merit pay for politicians? Fix the economy first, and THEN we'll let you have a pay raise.
