Would you support increasing benefits to veterans, even if they had no plan of paying for them?
In Ohio, last election, the voters passed an increase in veteran benefits.
The ballot read, “authorized the state to borrow $ 200 million to fund veteran benefits.”
No explanation of how that debt will be paid for. No discussion of property taxes or any funding source.
It’s easy to be sympathetic to veterans so the measure passed with ease.
now look at the mess.
I’m not anti-veteran but this is just irresponsible.
Look at Ohio’s debt:
5.5 billion and growing.
It’s edging closer to its debt ceiling.
The Office of Budget and Management said the state could reach its constitutional debt limit in four to five years, which would severely limit its ability to build and renovate schools, university buildings, and park facilities, let alone tackle museums, sports arenas, and other projects.
That spells trouble of Ohio’s economy.
