The article reports that the Republican lawmakers of Ohio have put political expediency ahead of good public policy by hurriedly passing legislation to put a spending cap on the state budget. They have given Ohio voters one more reason to end more than a decade of one-party rule in the state. There was no pretense of debating or contemplating the potential impact of the Tax and Expenditure Limitation measure. Now, voters of Ohio must consider whether they can allow the Republican Party to continue to rule.
