    I’m curious as to what is so “unwieldy” about a 2.75% flat tax on oil & gas severance. Sight unseen, I would be willing to believe that the proposed revenue-sharing system is unwieldy, because local government boundaries are often very oddly shaped and certainly aren’t likely to be coextensive with the actual physical areas affected by any particular well, so if the revenue-sharing is supposed to track local impact, that could get thorny. But the revenue-raising part? Seriously, many conservatives tout flat taxes because of their simplicity. This proposal isn’t completely flat because there’s a three-year, $8 million per well exemption (which could honestly allow for a lot of manipulation, since it incentivizes using many small wells, if possible–not sure how technically feasible that is, but the tax planning opportunity is obvious enough). But it’s simple enough, and as the article points out, other fossil-fuel-rich states are demanding higher cuts than that: WV’s tax is 5%.

    Where’s the beef?

    Not seeing the problem either. Seems simple enough.

    The beef is that Kasich and his party are desperate to bring in revenue to a state where forty percent of the budget goes to fund programs for the aged. You are literally being economically and fiscally strangled to death by the prevailing demographic winds. That’s not a nice thing to say but it is SO true.

    In Ohio, Gov. Kasich Rises From Forsaken to Favorite
    by ALAN GREENBLATT
    March 26, 2014 6:56 AM

    Early in his term, Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich was considered the most unpopular governor in the country. Between that and a sputtering state economy, a second term looked like a dicey proposition. But Kasich’s standing has recovered over the past two years and the latest polling indicates his Democratic opponent Ed FitzGerald remains largely unknown.

    Ohio Governor John Kasich Sounds Spiritual Tone For Second Term
    January 13, 2015
    by Jo Ingles

    Governor John Kasich was sworn into his second term in office on Monday. His inaugural speech sounded more like something that would come from a preacher than a politician. It’s not unusual for John Kasich to talk about his spirituality. But in his inaugural speech, the governor focused on commonly held personal values rather than specific proposals or political ideas. He called on Ohioans to be empathetic.

    Every time I want to like Kasich, he does something new egregious thing to help the rich / screw the poor.
