HOUSE VOTE TODAY ON PRIMARY
DESIGNED TO DENY CITIZENS RIGHTS AND AID KASICH
Akron, OH – Today, Tom Zawistowski, President of the Ohio Citizens PAC, demanded that Republicans vote against the Republican Party plan to move the Ohio Presidential Primary back one week next March. Zawistowski said “This smacks of back-room Chicago stye politics by the Kasich machine which is designed to deny the votes of hundreds of thousands of Republican voters in next years primary. The bottom line, the vote today is about John Kasich’s out of control ego and his distain for the Constitution. They are doing this so that the Primary next year will be “winner take all”. Meaning if John Kasich win’s 30% of the vote and Scott Walker wins 25% of the vote and Rand Paul wins 20% of the vote and Ted Cruz wins 15% – John Kasich get ALL the delegates. If you voted for Walker or Paul our Cruz your vote counts for nothing. We will see how many Republicans in the Ohio House have the courage to stand for Liberty and defend the votes of the citizens in their district against Kasich’s tyranny. We need need 16 votes to defeat this measure. All citizens should be outraged enough to call their House member right now and tell them to defend your rights.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Tuesday, April 21, 2015
Akron, OH – Today four key Ohio TEA Party Leaders urged the Ohio House to vote NO on the state budget proposal and asked citizens to call their House members and encourage them to kill this outrageous spending bill. The vote on the budget is expected to be taken this Thursday, April 23, 2015.
Tom Zawistowski, President of the Ohio Citizens PAC said, “Glenn Newman, President of the Ohio Liberty Coalition; Ted Stevenot, President of Ohio Rising; John McAvoy, President of the Northwest Ohio Conservative Coalition; and I, are urging the Ohio House to vote NO on the proposed budget this Thursday. This budget will not only continue the illegitimate expansion of Obamacare in Ohio by our liberal Republican Governor’s failed implementation of Medicaid Expansion, but it will increase the size of state government to historic levels. With inflation at 1.6% how can a so-called Republican Governor and Super-Majority Republican Ohio House vote for a budget that grows by 9.6% in 2016 and an additional 3.9% in 2017? How many Ohio taxpayers are seeing their income increase 9.6% per year or even 3.9%?”
Zawistowski then made a call to action, “We would hope that Liberty Group members and other budget conscious citizens will take the time to protect their wallets and call their Representatives on Wednesday. Ask them directly why they would support Obamacare when the vast majority of Ohioans are against it, it doesn’t work and we can’t afford it? Ask them how they justify growing our state government spending by $10 billion dollars – up from the $26.2 billion spent in 2011 to $36 billion in 2017? This is simply outrageous. Worse yet, our state’s dependence on federal dollar will reach 36% of total state spending under this budget plan. Ohio is growing our nation’s debt by becoming a welfare state. That federal money is borrowed from our children and younger voters should be outraged by this generational theft. No true Republican can be this reckless about spending. They must vote NO on Thursday or face the wrath of conservative voters next year in the Republican primary.”
Akron, OH – Tom Zawistowski, President of the Ohio Citizens PAC, today exposed the facts about Ohio Governor John Kasich’s misleading claims about his election results in the 2014 Election. Zawistowski provided results from Cuyahoga County that show that Kasich got even less people to vote for him in Cuyahoga County than Mitt Romney did and would actually have no chance of winning Ohio if he were the Republican nominee.
Zawistowski said “Here are the facts on John Kasich in Cuyahoga County. Mitt Romney got 190,660 votes in Cuyahoga County in 2012, John Kasich only got 172,319 in his pretend “land slide” election victory. Kasich didn’t get anyone in Cuyahoga County to vote for him, he got them to NOT vote for him! 447,273 Cuyahoga County voters voted for Barack Obama in 2012. No sane person believes that those voters would come out and vote for John Kasich for President.”
Zawistowski concluded by saying, “As we documented after the 2014 election, nearly 1,000,000 Ohioans were motivated to not vote at all by John Kasich’s campaign and record and those people would come out and vote against him in a Presidential election where they actually had a Democrat for which to vote. Secondly, 88,000 Ohioans who actually went to the polls choose NOT to vote for Kasich and left their ballot blank, which is more than his margin of victory of 77,000 in 2010. John Kasich is no Scott Walker but the Karl Rove Establishment wing of the Republican Party are going to makes sure that Kasich splits the Walker vote to make sure Jeb Bush wins the nomination. All Conservatives need to understand, a vote for Kasich is a vote for Jeb Bush.”
