3. Instead of higher compensation, public employers have found it more cost-effective to keep health care premiums lower instead for employees.
4. If there is an issue with premiums, public employees would be willing to sit down and NEGOTIATE a different contract.
John Kasich successfully utilizes the red herring persuasion technique. Instead of discussing what SB 5 really does to public employees, and the labor unions which support them, Kasich creates a false argument based on a faulty premise... Smart...Creative... But highly inaccurate. But then again I do not think Kasich has risen to his political position by accident, and he is banking on half-truths to rule the day in his attempt to balance the state budget on the backs of Ohio's local government.
The question is, why didn't John Kasich come clean and tell viewers what SB 5 is really designed to do?
