More headlines from around the country on how Republicans are working hard to create jobs finding ways to shit on average Americans:

House Approves Penalty for Colleges That Offer Partner Benefits

The Michigan House approved an amendment to the education budget on Thursday night that will penalize state universities and colleges five percent for offering domestic partner benefits for same-sex or unmarried partners.

Ohio House Budget Would Let Kasich Sell Assets Such as Prisons

Ohio Governor John Kasich could sell or lease six prisons and the state turnpike under the $55.6 billion, two-year budget that passed the Republican-led House of Representatives 59-40 yesterday.

[...]

Kasich’s March 15 spending proposal called for raising an estimated $200 million by selling five prisons to companies that would run them. The House plan would add a juvenile correctional facility for sale or lease.

Bottom line re the Kasich thing?  He wants to sell prisons, juvenile facilities and turnpikes to his corporate buddies. Imagine calling Comcast to tell them about potholes on your route to work.  Think they’ll care?

No.  The bigger problem is, you can’t vote them out if they ignore you.  That’s the good thing about the government owning the public works.
