00:08:01[APPLAUSE]
I WANT TO THANK YOU, MEMBERS OF
00:08:21THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY.
THANK YOU FOR COMING HERE
00:08:23TONIGHT.
I WANT TO THANK THE MEMBERS OF
00:08:27MY CABINET THAT HAD A FANTASTIC
DAY IN WILMINGTON.
00:08:29OVER 80 MEETINGS INCLUDING A
MEETING WITH OVER 200 VETERANS
00:08:34AT A JOBS FAIR.
THAT WAY WE CAN COME TO THE
00:08:38COMMUNITY AND HELP.
MY CAPTAIN AND MY STAFF, GOD
00:08:43BLESS YOU.
I AM ONE PERSON THAT GETS IT
00:08:48DIRECT BUT WITHOUT YOU, WE CAN'T
DO IT.
00:08:49I WANT TO THANK YOU.
AND TO MY SPECIAL WIFE.
00:08:55WOULD YOU STAND AND LET THEM
RECOGNIZE YOU?
00:08:58[APPLAUSE]
THAT'S RIGHT.
00:09:24AND SHE HAS TO LIVE WITH ME.
THAT'S WORTH A STANDING OVATION.
00:09:28I WANT TO THANK THE FAMILY.
IT WE ARE JUST SO THRILLED TO BE
00:09:35HERE.
SOME OF YOU MAY WONDER WHY I
00:09:40ASKED THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY TO
COME TO WILMINGTON TONIGHT.
00:09:42I REALLY WANT TO TELL YOU WHO I
AM HERE.
00:09:45I'LL TELL YOU ABOUT CLIFF AND
WILMINGTON AND ME A LITTLE BIT
00:09:53OTHER ALONG.
I CAME TO WILMINGTON DURING MY
00:09:59CAMPAIGN IN 2010.
I SAW THE DEVASTATION THAT THIS
00:10:03TOWN HAD SUFFERED WRITTEN ON THE
FACES OF THE PEOPLE OF
00:10:08WILMINGTON.
AND THESE ARE PEOPLE THAT PLAYED
00:10:13BY THE RULES.
THEY DIDN'T DO ANYTHING WRONG.
00:10:15SO MUCH REMINDS ME OF STORIES
ACROSS THE COUNTRY INCLUDING MY
00:10:22OWN HOMETOWN.
BUT ONE DAY, THE RUG WAS PULLED
00:10:27FROM UNDER THEM.
PEOPLE LOST THEIR SAVINGS.
00:10:32PEOPLE LOST THEIR HOMES.
A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE LOSING
00:10:35HOPE.
IN WHAT THEIR FUTURE WAS GOING
00:10:40TO BE.
MANY OF THEM WERE ONLY ABLE TO
00:10:45FEED THEIR FAMILIES THANKS TO
THE GOOD WORK AT FOOD PANTRIES
00:10:50LIKE SUGAR TREE MINISTRIES.
WHAT A GREAT OPERATION IT WAS.
00:10:54YES, YOU CAN APPLAUD FOR SUGAR
TREE MINUTE TREES.
00:10:59-- MINISTRIES.
[APPLAUSE]
00:11:03I VISITED SUGAR TREE WITH MY
CAMPAIGNS HALF AND MY WIFE.
00:11:07REMEMBER, SWEETHEART, WHEN WE
WERE HERE?
00:11:12WE LEFT THE PANTRY AND GOT BACK
ON THE BUS.
00:11:16I WAS GETTING PRETTY EMOTIONAL.
I TURNED TO THE PEOPLE WHO WERE
00:11:24WITH ME.
THE PEOPLE ON MY CAMPAIGN STAFF
00:11:32WHO HAD BEEN WITH ME FOR MANY
YEARS.
00:11:33YOU BETTER UNDERSTAND THIS IS
NOT JUST ANOTHER POLITICAL
00:11:38CAMPAIGN.
DID YOU SEE WHAT WAS HAPPENING
00:11:42IN THAT PANTRY?
DID YOU SEE THE PAIN?
00:11:47THE ANGUISH ON THEIR FACES?
I TOLD THEM OUR MISSION IS TO
00:11:59HELP FIX THIS COMMUNITY AND
RESTORE SOME HOPE.
00:12:02OUR MISSION IS TO GET PEOPLE
BACK ON THEIR FEET IN PLACES
00:12:08LIKE WILMINGTON.
AND FOLKS, I HAVE VERY GOOD NEWS
00:12:12TO REPORT.
THE STATE OF THE STATE IS
00:12:17GETTING STRONGER AND WE HAVE
REGAINED OUR FOOTING.
00:12:19BUT WE MUST ACT DECISIVELY.
WE ARE BETTER TODAY THAN WE WERE
00:12:28AND WE ARE RISING.
WILMINGTON IS, IN MANY WAYS, A
00:12:41REFLECTION OF OHIO.
WE ARE DOING BETTER.
00:12:48FROM $.89 IN OUR RAINY DAY FUND
AND A BILLION DOLLARS BUDGET
00:12:54SHORTFALL TO A BALANCED BUDGET
TODAY.
00:12:59AND A $1.5 BILLION SURPLUS.
FROM $.89 AND 8 BILLION IN THE
00:13:12HOLE, WE WERE LOOKING FORWARD TO
ADDING ANOTHER $400 MILLION TO
00:13:17THAT PIGGY BANK.
AND I HAVE TO TELL YOU, NOT HALF
00:13:27BUT NEARLY HALF THE STATES ARE
NOT STRUCTURALLY BALANCED.
00:13:33DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO DO
MAJOR SURGERY WHEN YOU DON'T
00:13:46KNOW HOW YOU'RE GOING TO PUT IT
ALL TOGETHER?
00:13:47WE HAVE AGREED TO USE
CONSERVATIVE ECONOMICS AND ACT
00:13:54LIKE A GOOD OHIO FAMILY THAT
SAYS WE'VE GOT TO BE
00:13:58CONSERVATIVE.
THE RECORD IS PRETTY AMAZING
00:14:05THAT WE SHOULD ALL FEEL PROUD OF
IT.
00:14:06LOSING 350,000 JOBS, 3.5 TIMES
OHIO STADIUM TO WHERE WE ARE UP
00:14:17ALMOST 300,000 NEW PRIVATE
SECTOR JOBS OVER THE LAST FOUR
00:14:21YEARS.
IT'S AMAZING.
00:14:23WE HAVE GONE FROM VERY HIGH
TAXES ACROSS THE BOARD TO THE
00:14:32LARGEST TAX CUT IN AMERICA
INCLUDING FOR THE WORKING FOR --
00:14:39THE WORKING POOR.
WE ARE SEEING WAGES GO -- GROW
00:14:47FASTER THAN THE NATIONAL
AVERAGE.
00:14:48AND UNEMPLOYMENT HAS DROPPED TO
THE LOWEST LEVEL IN MORE THAN A
00:14:57DECADE.
THIS IS ALL REALLY GREAT STUFF.
00:15:01IF I WERE TO LEAVE THIS TONIGHT
AND SAY THAT OUR MISSION IS
00:15:07ACCOMPLISHED, THERE IS NO WAY I
WOULD BE DOING MY JOB.
00:15:10WE HAVE A LOT MORE BATTLES TO
WAGE AND I CANNOT WAGE THEM
00:15:19WITHOUT YOU.
I CAN'T DO IT UNLESS WE ALL WORK
00:15:26TOGETHER.
I PROPOSED A BUDGET FOR THE NEXT
00:15:29TWO YEARS.
PEOPLE THINK BUDGETS ARE ABOUT
00:15:33NUMBERS AND DOLLARS, BUT THAT'S
NOT REALLY IT.
00:15:35I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON BUDGETS
SINCE I WAS A KID.
00:15:40THEY ARE NEVER ABOUT NUMBERS,
THEY ARE ABOUT PEOPLE.
00:15:44THEY ARE ABOUT VISION AND
ECONOMIC GROWTH.
00:15:49AND NOT LEAVING ANYBODY BEHIND,
PARTICULARLY THOSE PEOPLE THAT
00:15:58LIVE IN THE SHADOWS.
WE ARE STARTING TO GET A GLIMPSE
00:16:03OF WHERE OUR VISION CAN TAKE
OHIO IF WE MAKE THE TOUGH AND
00:16:07RIGHT CHOICES.
BUT WE HAVE MORE WORK TO DO.
00:16:11WE NEED TO WIN MORE BATTLES
AGAINST THE STATUS LOW.
00:16:16WE HAVE TO CONTINUE TO WIN
BATTLES AGAINST THE STATUS QUO
00:16:25IF WE WANT TO TAKE OHIO WHERE WE
WANTED TO BE IN WHERE WE NEED IT
00:16:31TO BE.
THAT MEANS WE NEED TO CONTINUE
00:16:35TO BATTLE SPECIAL INTEREST THAT
WANT TO LOCK US AND WHERE WE ARE
00:16:38TODAY IN THE PLAN MY
ADMINISTRATION HAS LAID OUT
00:16:43PROVIDES A PATH THAT I BELIEVE
WILL PROPEL US HIGHER AND
00:16:47HIGHER.
I AM PROUD OF WHAT WE HAVE DONE
00:16:50SO ARE AND I AM GREAT OLD I HAVE
THE CHANCE TO SERVE ALONGSIDE
00:16:55LEADERS WITH VISION AND A
CERTAIN SENSE OF TOUGHNESS
00:16:58BECAUSE LEADERSHIP IS NOT A
FINGER IN THE AIR TO FIGURE OUT
00:17:05WHO IS GOING TO BE WITH YOU.
IT'S NOT ABOUT WHO LIKES YOU,
00:17:11IT'S ABOUT USING YOUR JUDGMENT
TO DELIVER THE BEST RESULTS.
00:17:14THE FORMER SENATE PRESIDENT TOM
THE HOUSES IN THE AUDIENCE
00:17:21TONIGHT.
I WOULD LIKE HIM TO STAND.
00:17:24IS HE HERE?
GIVE HIM A ROUND OF APPLAUSE.
00:17:29AND, OF COURSE, FORMER SPEAKER
OF THE HOUSE, WHERE IS BILL?
00:17:40STAND AND BE RECOGNIZED.
I AM GRATEFUL TO SERVE WITH
00:17:49SOMEONE LIKE KEITH FABER.
KEITH AND I ARE BUDDIES.
00:17:55IT'S A WONDERFUL THING WHEN YOU
CAN CROSS THE LINE FROM
00:18:00COLLEAGUE AND YOU CAN TEASE AND
YOU CAN KID.
00:18:04KEITH IS MY BUDDY.
WHAT CAN I SAY ABOUT CLIFF?
00:18:10I FIRST UNDERSTAND -- UNDERSTOOD
THE FASHION WHEN HE BECAME --
00:18:20ABOUT THE THINGS THAT WE NEEDED
TO DO TO GET WILMINGTON ON ITS
00:18:23THE HERE AND ALWAYS THINKING
INSIDE THE BOX WITH SUCH GREAT
00:18:31PASSION.
PEOPLE OF CLINTON COUNTY.
00:18:35BUT YOU COULD NOT HAVE A BETTER
READ THAN THE ROSENBERGER.
00:18:40HE IS HEART AND SOUL COMMITTED
TO YOU.
00:18:45HOW ABOUT BOB PEARSON?
STAND UP AND GET RECOGNIZED.
00:18:57HE IS ALSO A GREAT LEADER HERE.
SO I HAVE SAID I AM PROUD ABOUT
00:19:06WHAT WE ARE DOING, BUT LET ME BE
CLEAR ABOUT WHAT IS MAKING THE
00:19:10DIFFERENCE.
BALANCED BUDGETS, SURPLUSES,
00:19:16SMART MANAGEMENT, COMMONSENSE
REGULATIONS.
00:19:19THANK YOU, MARY TAYLOR, OR ALL
OF YOUR WORK.
00:19:24GIVE MARY A ROUND OF APPLAUSE.
SHE IS TERRIFIC.
00:19:29THESE ARE THE IDEAS PRODUCING
ECONOMIC GROWTH WHICH IS MAKING
00:19:38SO MANY OF THE OTHER GOOD RINGS
POSSIBLE.
00:19:41THESE ACCOMPLISHMENTS ARE
SENDING MESSAGES TO JOB READERS
00:19:45AROUND THIS DATE, THE COUNTRY,
AND THE GLOBE THAT OHIO IS OPEN
00:19:50FOR BUSINESS.
I TALKED TO THEM ALL THE TIME.
00:19:54WHEN I TELL THEM WE WERE 8
BILLION IN THE HOLE AND NOW 2
00:19:59BILLION IN THE BLACK.
THAT WE HAVE A PRIVATE SECTOR
00:20:05ENTITY THAT CAN RESPOND TO THEM
ECKLEY WHEN IT COMES TO THE NEED
00:20:09TO GIVE THEM ANSWERS ON THE
OPPORTUNITIES FOR JOB GROWTH.
00:20:11I TALKED TO THEM ALL THE TIME,
EVERY WEEK, ALMOST EVERY DAY.
00:20:15IT'S HARD FOR THEM TO BELIEVE
BUT NOW WE'RE STARTING TO GET A
00:20:21REPUTATION BECAUSE WHAT WE
CELEBRATE TONIGHT IS FOR REAL.
00:20:23PARTICULARLY WHEN COMPARED TO
OTHERS, IT'S IMPRESSIVE.
00:20:28WE ARE POISED TO TAKE WHAT I
BELIEVE ARE MAJOR LEAPS FORWARD
00:20:33SO WE CAN BEGIN LOCKING IN THE
PROGRESS READ MADE AND PREPARING
00:20:37FOR THE CHALLENGES LOOMING ALL
TO CLOSE ON THE HORIZON.
00:20:39CHALLENGES LIKE THE AGING OF OUR
WORKFORCE AS BABY BOOMERS
00:20:48RETIRE.
WE ARE GETTING OLDER IN OHIO.
00:20:51UNDERSTAND THE IMPLICATIONS OF
NOT BEING ABLE TO REFILL THOSE
00:20:59JOBS.
WITH THE YOUNG PEOPLE.
00:21:01WE HAVE FACED THE INEVITABLE
ECONOMIC DOWNTURN.
00:21:08JUST LOOK AT THE STOCK MARKET.
LOOK AT THE ECONOMIC NEWS AND
00:21:13THE UNDER ACTIVE CRISES THAT
ALWAYS SEEMS TO STRIKE WHEN WE
00:21:17LEAST EXPECT IT.
I BELIEVE THE MOST IMPORT THING
00:21:22WE CAN DO TO PLAN AHEAD IS TO
CONTINUE STRENGTHENING OHIO'S
00:21:28ECONOMY BY FURTHER CUTTING TAXES
.
00:21:29THAT MEANS WE MUST RESTRAIN
GOVERNMENT SPENDING.
00:21:33WE NEED TO CUT TAXES AND LEAD TO
RESTRAIN THE GROWTH OF
00:21:39GOVERNMENT.
I HAVE PROPOSING WE ATTACKED IS
00:21:43BY $500 MILLION ON TOP OF THE $3
BILLION IN CUTS WE'VE ALREADY
00:21:47MADE BECAUSE HIGH INCOME TAXES
PUNISH RISK TAKING.
00:21:52HIGH INCOME TAXES PUNISH RISK
TAKING.
00:21:56THEY DRIVE SOME OF OUR BEST AND
BRIGHTEST TO OTHER STATES IN
00:22:05SEARCH OF LOWER TAXES AND BETTER
OPPORTUNITIES.
00:22:06AND YOU ALL KNOW WHAT I MEAN.
I'LL WHAT PART OF OHIO YOU COME
00:22:13DOWN, SOME OF OUR BEST,
BRIGHTEST, AND MOST WILL.
00:22:18THEY LEAVE.
AND THEY GO OTHER PLACES.
00:22:25WE'VE GOT TO CONTINUE TO DO THE
THINGS WE NEED TO DO TO CUT
00:22:29TAXES.
THE BUDGET I PROPOSE HOLDS
00:22:33GROWTH TO BELOW HISTORIC
INFLATION.
00:22:34IT'S ONLY 2% THE FIRST YEAR AND
2.5% THE NEXT YEAR.
00:22:39WE WANT TO RESTRAIN THE GROWTH
IN GOVERNMENT SPENDING AND IT IS
00:22:47CRITICAL THAT WE GROW AT A LEVEL
WHERE WE CAN MEET PRIORITIES AND
00:22:51AT THE SAME TIME, HAVE THE SPACE
00:22:53FOR TAX CUTS.
IT DOESN'T MEAN WE DON'T INVEST
00:22:58IN SOME PRIORITIES LIKE
EDUCATION.
00:22:59BUT WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR
WAYS TO INNOVATE AND IMPROVE AND
00:23:06REDUCE BECAUSE OUR
ADMINISTRATION HAS BEEN
00:23:08SUCCESSFUL.
IN DOING THAT, WE HAVE KEPT
00:23:11GROWTH IN CHECK SO THAT THERE IS
MONEY TO GIVE BACK TO OHIOANS.
00:23:13BECAUSE WE HAVE RESTRAINED
OURSELVES, WE ARE ABLE TO GIVE
00:23:21HALF $1 BILLION BACK TO THE
PEOPLE OF THIS DATE.
00:23:22-- OF THIS STATE.
[APPLAUSE]
00:23:33NOW WE WILL HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF
AN EXPLANATION ABOUT ALL THIS.
00:23:38PEOPLE GET TO KEEP ALL OF THEIR
MONEY.
00:23:47THEY HAVE MORE CONTROL OVER
THEIR LIVES.
00:23:49THEY HAVE MORE POWER.
IT'S NOT THE GOVERNANCE -- THE
00:24:08GOVERNMENT'S MONEY.
WE WANT TO KEEP AS MUCH OF IT IS
00:24:12POSSIBLE.
THEY WILL ALWAYS KNOW HOW TO
00:24:21SPEND IT BETTER THAN GOVERNMENT
EVER COULD.
00:24:22THEY WILL DO A BETTER JOB OF
EXERCISING CHOICE THAN ANY
00:24:25GOVERNMENT WHATEVER DO FOR THEM.
DON'T FORGET THAT.
00:24:29BUT HERE'S ANOTHER THING YOU
NEED TO UNDERSTAND.
00:24:35LOW TAXES SIGNALED THE JOB
CREATORS THAT OHIO IS A SAFE AND
00:24:39ATTRACTIVE WAYS TO INVEST.
WHEN YOU ARE LOOKING AT
00:24:46INVESTING, YOU WANT TO GO WHERE
THINGS ARE SOLID, BUDGETS ARE
00:24:48BALANCED.
WHERE GOVERNMENT IS BEING
00:24:54RESTRAINED AND YOU KNOW IT IS A
GOVERNMENT WHERE A GROUP OF
00:24:58LEADERS WHO UNDERSTAND THE
PHILOSOPHY OF REDUCING TAXES AND
00:25:04EMPOWERING PEOPLE FROM THE
BOTTOM UP, IT SENDS YOU A SIGNAL
00:25:07OF STRENGTH.
AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT WE WANT
00:25:10TO DO.
A SMALL BUSINESS WITH MORE MONEY
00:25:16CAN HIRE MORE PEOPLE AND BY MORE
MACHINERY, AND THEREFORE, HAVE A
00:25:23BETTER CHANCE TO THRIVE.
SMALL BUSINESSES GET HEALTHIER.
00:25:26THEY CAN BE HIGHER.
THEY CAN BE STRONGER.
00:25:29THIS IS JUST A SIMPLE FACT.
HIGH TAXES DISCOURAGE IT.
00:25:35HIGH TAXES PUNISH A BUSINESS
OWNER'S WILLINGNESS TO TAKE A
00:25:42RISK TO HIRE MORE PEOPLE, INVEST
IN IMPROVEMENTS AND WORK ORDER
00:25:47TO BE SUCCESSFUL.
LOWER TAXES INCENTIVIZE ALL OF
00:25:50THOSE THINGS.
AND WHEN SMALL BUSINESSES TAKE
00:25:53RISKS WHEN THEY INVEST AND
EXPAND, IT ECHOES THROUGHOUT OUR
00:25:58ECONOMY.
IT'S CALLED GROWTH.
00:26:00WE CUT WORKERS COMPENSATION
PREMIUMS BY 12% AND $409 MILLION
00:26:11IN SAVINGS.
WE HAVE GIVEN EMPLOYERS $1.75
00:26:16BILLION BACK IN REBATES AND
WORKER'S COMP. WHILE INVESTING
00:26:22IN WORKER SAFETY.
CALL YOUR SMALL BUSINESS AND ASK
00:26:25THEM.
IT'S ALSO WHY I WANT TO
00:26:30ELIMINATE INCOME TAXES FOR
VIRTUALLY EVERY SMALL BUSINESS
00:26:32IN OUR STATE HELPED FUEL AND
ACCELERATE GROWTH.
00:26:36I WANT TO SEND THE MESSAGE THAT
IF YOU WANT TO START A SMALL
00:26:46BUSINESS, IF YOU WANT TO BE AN
ENTREPRENEUR, IF YOU ARE A YOUNG
00:26:57PERSON COMING OUT OF COLLEGE, DO
IT IN OHIO.
00:26:58THINK ABOUT IT.
IT DO IT IN OHIO.
00:27:03STAY HERE OR COME HERE BECAUSE
WE WILL GIVE YOU THE HELP YOU
00:27:07NEED TO OPEN THE DOORS.
AND THAT HELPS US WITH THE
00:27:12POPULATION DRAIN WE HAVE SEEN IN
THIS STATE.
00:27:14WE HAVE SEEN SIMILAR -- RIGHT.
EXACTLY RIGHT, TIM.
00:27:21FAMILIES GET TO KEEP MORE OF
THEIR OWN MONEY.
00:27:26THEY HAVE CONTROL OVER THEIR OWN
LIVES.
00:27:29THE FREEDOM TO DIRECT THEIR OWN
FUTURES.
00:27:32THEY CAN SAVE FOR A RAINY DAY OR
COLLEGE EDUCATION OR NEEDED HOME
00:27:38REPAIRS.
THEY CAN GO INTO BUSINESS OR
00:27:40TAKE A SPECIAL TRIP LIKE MY MOM
AND DAD USED TO DO.
00:27:44I WANT TO GIVE FAMILIES THIS
KIND OF POWER OVER THEIR OWN
00:27:52LIVES.
00:27:52THAT IS WHY I AM PROPOSING TO
CUT THE INCOME TAX RATES BY 23%.
00:27:57WE HAVE ALREADY CUT OHIO'S TAX
RATE FROM 519 TO .3% -- 5.9% TO
00:28:06FIVE 13%.
OVER THE NEXT TWO YEARS.
00:28:16I WANT YOU TO THINK ABOUT IT.
[APPLAUSE]
00:28:20CUTTING TAXES AND DO MORE TO
STRENGTHEN OHIO AS LOW AS TO
00:28:27ATTRACT THE BEST AND BRIGHTEST
TO OUR STATE.
00:28:29DON'T FORGET, MANY INNOVATORS
LEAVE OHIO FOUR STATES WITH ZERO
00:28:37INCOME TAXES, AND WHEN THEY DO,
THEY TAKE THEIR GOOD IDEAS AND
00:28:39THEIR PHILANTHROPY WITH THEM.
LET ME PUT THIS IN SIMPLE TERMS.
00:28:44SO YOU WORK A LIFETIME.
YOU BUILD A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS.
00:28:49I USED TO SAY, DAD, HOW DO WE
FEEL ABOUT THE RICH CAN MARK HE
00:28:57USED TO SAY, JOHNNY, WE WENT TO
BE ONE OF THEM.
00:29:02THESE FOLKS, MANY OF WHOM KNOW,
WHETHER WE LIVE IN BILL OR
00:29:09YOUNGSTOWN OR CLEVELAND OR
TOLEDO OR CINCINNATI OR
00:29:14COLUMBUS, SOMEBODY HAS AN
OPPORTUNITY TO CASH IN WHAT THEY
00:29:19EARNED, AND THEY CAN DO -- SELL
SOME STOCK.
00:29:23AND THEY PAY THE FEDERAL CAPITAL
GAINS RATE.
00:29:33THEY DON'T PAY ANYTHING ELSE.
IF THEY LIVE IN OHIO, THEY PAY
00:29:43THE FEDERAL CAPITAL GAINS RATE
PLUS AN ADDITIONAL 5.3%.
00:29:46NOW, WHAT WOULD YOU RATHER PAY?
25.3% IN TAXES OR 20%? AND FOR
00:29:55MANY OF THESE PEOPLE WHO ARE
STCCESSFUL, IT IS A LARGE AMOUNT
00:29:59OF MONEY, AND THAT IS WHY WHEN
YOU GO TO NAPLES AND YOU DRIVE
00:30:04AROUND, YOU KEEP BUMPING INTO
OHIOANS.
00:30:06THEY CAN BUY ANOTHER HOUSE DOWN
THERE.
00:30:10THIS IS NOT COMPLICATED.
WE CANNOT LOSE OUR BEST AND
00:30:19BRIGHTEST.
I AM PLEADING WITH YOU TO
00:30:23UNDERSTAND THAT WE DRIVE THEM
OUT, AND THEY GO DOWN THERE, AND
00:30:26WHEN THEY GO TO FLORIDA, THEY
ARE BUILDING A NEW RING ARE
00:30:29CENTER IN NAPLES.
-- A NEW PERFORMING ARTS CENTER
00:30:34IN NAPLES.
I WANT A NEW PERFORMING ARTS
00:30:38CENTER HERE, NOT IN NAPLES,
FLORIDA.
00:30:45I WANT TO KEEP THEM HERE.
THAT IS THE EASY PART OF IT, OK?
00:30:50AND YOU ALL CAN DEBATE HOW YOU
WANT TO DO IT.
00:30:52THAT'S 500 MILLION DOLLARS GET
PAID FOR BY THE SAVINGS WE ARE
00:30:56ABLE TO GENERATE.
WE CAN ACHIEVE MORE IF WE START
00:31:05FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGING THE WAY
THE OHIO TAX SYSTEM WORKS SO
00:31:10THAT TAXES HAVE LESS OF A DRAG
ON THE PRIVATE ECONOMY.
00:31:13LOOK, NO TAX IS GREAT, BUT SOME
ARE WORSE THAN OTHERS.
00:31:21IF YOU EVER STUDIED THAT, SOME
TAXES HAVE A GREATER DRAG ON
00:31:27ECONOMIC GROWTH AND OTHER TAXES.
WE'RE GOING TO HAVE THE TAXES
00:31:33THAT HAVE THE LEAST NEGATIVE
IMPACT ON THE ECONOMY SO WE CAN
00:31:36CREATE JOBS.
A CERTAIN LEVEL OF TAXES IS
00:31:41INEVITABLE TO PAY FOR ROADS, TO
PAY FOR SCHOOLS, TO CARE FOR THE
00:31:43NEEDY.
THE GOVERNMENT HAS TO MAKE THAT
00:31:47MONEY GO AS FAR AS IT CAN'T, AND
THOSE TAXES HAVE TO BE GENERATED
00:31:50IN THE LEAST HARMFUL WAY.
AND LET ME FINISH THIS.
00:31:58I THINK WE SHOULD LEAN LEFT ON
INCOME TAXES WHICH PUNISH THE
00:32:04INVESTMENT AND THE GROWTH THAT
WE ALL SEEK AND LEAN MORE ON
00:32:08CONSUMPTION TAXES.
HEY, THE STATES THAT HAVE
00:32:12FOLLOWED THAT FORMULA, THEY ARE
GOING FASTER THAN WE ARE.
00:32:15THEY ARE YOUNGER THAN WE ARE.
WHERE ARE THEY?
00:32:19FLORIDA.
TEXAS.
00:32:20LOOK AT TENNESSEE.
I HAVE TO COMPETE WITH THE STATE
00:32:28WHEN I CALLED THESE CEO'S.
NEVADA.
00:32:30PEOPLE ARE MOVING FROM
CALIFORNIA TO NEVADA BECAUSE
00:32:37THEY RAISED TAXES.
THIS IS HAPPENING BECAUSE MONEY
00:32:39FLOWS TO THE PLACE THAT HAS A
LOWER TAXES.
00:32:42OUT INCOME TAXES ARE A SEVERE
DRAG ON ECONOMIC GROWTH.
00:32:48WE'RE SUPPOSED TO CELEBRATE HARD
WORK.
00:32:52WE WANT MORE OF IT, MORE HARD
WORK.
00:32:55WE SAY WE WANT TO CREATE MORE
GOOD MIDDLE-CLASS JOBS AND THAT
00:33:00WE WENT TO BOLSTER FAMILY
INCOMES, BUT IT CANNOT HAPPEN
00:33:03WITHOUT GROWING, THRIVING
BUSINESSES, BUT THEY CANNOT
00:33:09GROW, AND THEY CANNOT THRIVE
WITHOUT NEW INVESTMENT.
00:33:10THIS IS SIMPLE TO.
INVESTMENT SHOULD BE NURSED, NOT
00:33:15DISCOURAGED.
THIS IS SO THEY CAN GROW AND
00:33:19CREATE NEW, GOOD-PAYING JOBS.
THINK ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING
00:33:28OVER THERE IN STEUBENVILLE.
NEW JOB NEED NEW BUSINESSES, AND
00:33:32NEW BUSINESSES NEED NEW
INVESTMENT, AND LET'S ENCOURAGE
00:33:35INVESTMENT BY CUTTING TAXES.
IT IS COMMON SENSE.
00:33:41IT IS A PROCESS THAT BEGINS WITH
INVESTMENT AND ENDS WITH HIGHER
00:33:44FAMILY INCOMES.
FOLKS, THIS IS NOT REPUBLICAN.
00:33:47THIS ISN'T DEMOCRAT.
THIS IS A LOT OF WHAT WE HAVE
00:33:51BEEN TRYING TO DO OVER THE LAST
FOUR YEARS, AND LOOK AT THE
00:33:55RESULTS.
LET'S NOT STOP.
00:33:57LET'S DO MORE OFLET'S NOT STOP.
LET'S DO MORE OF IT, MORE OF IT
00:34:06SO WE CAN HAVE MORE JOBS, SO WE
CAN CURE OUR PLACE HERE IN
00:34:07AMERICA -- SO WE CAN SECURE OUR
PLACE.
00:34:08MORE TOWARDS CONSUMPTION TAXES,
WE ARE ENCOURAGING HARD WORK AND
00:34:13ARE ALSO GETTING PEOPLE MORE
CONTROL OVER THE AMOUNT OF TAXES
00:34:16THEY ULTIMATELY PAY.
IN THE CONSUMPTION TAX MODEL,
00:34:20YOU ARE IN CONTROL.
YOU ONLY PAY TAXES ON THE
00:34:24PURCHASES YOU CHOOSE TO MAKE.
YOU ARE THE ONE WHO DECIDES WHAT
00:34:27YOU BUY AND HOW MUCH YOU SPEND,
AND FOR THE POOREST OHIOANS, WE
00:34:31ARE PROVIDING RELIEF SO THEY ARE
NOT DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTED
00:34:37BY THE CHANGE IN CONSUMPTION
TAXES.
00:34:42HELPING PEOPLE WHO ARE THE
WORKING POOR.
00:34:44THAT IS WHY WE CREATED FOR THE
FIRST TIME IN OHIO THE EARNED
00:34:47INCOME TAX CREDIT.
IT IS NOT REFUNDABLE, AND I
00:34:51WOULD NOT SAY BREATHTAKING, BUT
IT IS CERTAINLY NEW.
00:34:53NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE.
WE CREATED IT, AND NOW WE ARE
00:34:57SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASING THE
PERSONAL EXEMPTION SO THAT THE
00:35:04WORKING POOR CAN HAVE INCENTIVE.
WHEN WE IMPROVE THE OHIO TAX
00:35:14CLIMATE.
YOU KNOW, THE SINGLE BIGGEST 44
00:35:17POVERTY?
-- BIGGEST YOUR -- CURE FOR
00:35:28POVERTY?
A JOB.
00:35:29[APPLAUSE]
OK.
00:35:30YOURSO WE ARE TALKING NOT JUSTT
SAVING MONEY BUT GOVERNMENT
00:35:36TAXES SOMETHING GO UP.
OTHER THINGS GO DOWN, BUT TO
00:35:41PROVIDE THE SENSITIVE FOR THE
LEAST NEGATIVE IMPACT ON THE
00:35:44ECONOMY.
AND HERE IS ANOTHER PLACE WHERE
00:35:51WE NEED TAX REFORM.
OUR CURRENT SYSTEM DOES NOT
00:35:56REFLECT THE REALITY.
BEFORE THIS WAS EVER ENVISIONED,
00:36:01ITS CURRENT LOW RATE, $.20 ON A
BARREL OF OIL.
00:36:09I DO NOT KNOW ANYBODY WHO LIVED
IN OHIO WHO WOULD NOT LIKE TO
00:36:15SIGN UP OR THIS.
$.20 ON A BARREL OF OIL.
00:36:20IT IS UNCONSCIONABLE, AS FAR AS
I AM CONCERNED.
00:36:27IT IS NOT RIGHT.
THESE RESOURCES ARE BEING HE
00:36:33PLEADED.
OHIO IS BEING MADE POORER AS A
00:36:35RESULT OF A DEPLETION OF OUR
RESOURCES.
00:36:36IT IS LIKE OIL AND GAS ITSELF.
MUCH IS BEING SHIPPED OUT OF OUR
00:36:44STATE.
BEING SHIPPED OUT OF OHIO.
00:36:45WE NEED TO CHANGE THAT WHILE AT
THE SAME TIME MAKING SURE THAT
00:36:50THE LONG TIME DRILLERS, THE ONES
THAT HAVE BEEN AROUND YEARS, THE
00:36:53ONE THAT MAKE VERY LITTLE MONEY,
WE WANT TO JUST GET RID OF THEIR
00:37:01TAXES, THEIR INCOME TAXES
ALTOGETHER, BUT WE ALSO WANT TO
00:37:03MAKE SURE THAT LOCAL GOVERNMENTS
ARE SUPPORTED WHEN THERE ARE
00:37:11ESSENTIAL SERVICES THAT ARE
FORCED TO GO UP BECAUSE OF OIL
00:37:13AND GAS ACTIVITY.
OK?
00:37:15ALL OF IT.
[APPLAUSE]
00:37:19THE PROSPERITY CREATED BY OUR
OIL AND GAS DEPOSITS CAN BE
00:37:27GREAT BUT NOT JUST FOR SHALE
COUNTRY.
00:37:28THIS IS NOT JUST FOR PART OF
OHIO BUT FOR ALL OF OHIO,
00:37:34BECAUSE IT MAKES POSSIBLE THE
INCOME TAX CUT THAT PROVIDED
00:37:38ECONOMIC BOOST STATEWIDE.
I IS DISAPPOINTED BY THOSE WHO
00:37:43SAY THE SEVERANCE TAX REFORM
WILL KILL THE INDUSTRY.
00:37:45THAT IS A JOKE.
THAT IS A BIG, FAT JOE, BECAUSE
00:37:51I HAVE TALKED TO THEM IN
PRIVATE.
00:37:52WE WILL STILL BE COMPETITIVE
WITH OTHER OIL-RICH STATES.
00:38:01WE ALL BENEFIT FROM THIS WHOLE
INDUSTRY.
00:38:08THAT IS WHAT IT SHOULD BE ALL
ABOUT.
00:38:09AND I WILL TELL YOU A STORY.
WE ARE OUT IN WYOMING MAY BE THE
00:38:21GREATEST GOVERNOR WAS HATHAWAY.
AND NOW THEY ARE RUNNING THESE
00:38:41BIG SURPLUSES IN THIS FUND AND
WHAT HAPPENED?
00:38:47AND HE SAID WE ARE GOING TO HAVE
A SEVERANCE TAX, AND GUESS WHAT,
00:39:10HE HAS GONE DOWN AS ONE OF THE
GREATEST GOVERNORS IN WYOMING.
00:39:12THAT IS WHAT THE PEOPLE IN THE
STATE WANT AND LET'S TALK ABOUT
00:39:21THE CAP TAX?
YOU WILL NOT GET THE REDUCTION
00:39:26IN THESE OTHER TAXES.
IT WON'T HAPPEN.
00:39:28YOU'RE EITHER FOR ECONOMIC
GROWTH OR WE GET ON THE STATUS
00:39:33QUO.
YOU KNOW, LET'S TALK ABOUT THE
00:39:45CAP TAX.
THIS CREATED 10 YEARS AGO.
00:39:48IT HAS BEEN A HUGE BENEFIT FOR
LARGE COMPANIES, ESPECIALLY
00:39:52MANUFACTURING COMPANIES.
OF COURSE, WE WANT TO SEE THEM
00:39:56SUCCEED, BUT WE ALSO WANT OHIO'S
SMALL ENTERPRISES NEED, BECAUSE
00:40:01THEY ARE THE REAL ENGINES OF
ECONOMIC GROWTH.
00:40:03THEY ARE LIKE FIGHTER JETS.
SMALL, NIMBLE, ABLE TO RESPOND
00:40:10TO CHANGES IN THE MARKETPLACE.
IT IS TIME FOR THESE BUSINESSES
00:40:15TO RECEIVE THE SAME KIND OF SHOT
IN THE ARM THAT BIG BUSINESSES
00:40:18RECEIVED 10 YEARS AGO, SO LET'S
REFORM THE CAP TAX AND ELIMINATE
00:40:20THE SMALL BUSINESS INCOME TAXES
ALTOGETHER.
00:40:25NOW, THAT IS A VERY INTERESTING
PROPOSAL AND A VERY INTEREST IN
00:40:27THOUGHT.
[APPLAUSE]
00:40:30I'D GET IT THAT CHANGING THE TAX
POLICY IS HARD.
00:40:40IT IS LIKE ARTICLES LAYING UP ON
A PIER IN THE OCEAN, -- IT IS
00:40:46LIKE BARNACLES LAYING UP ON A
PIER.
00:40:50LIKE THE TAX CUTS AND TAX
REFORMS IN OUR BUDGET.
00:40:55AND THIS IS SHORTSIGHTED.
MAKING SOME SPECIAL INTEREST
00:41:08GROUP HAPPY.
OUR INTEREST IS TO LIFT OHIO.
00:41:12NOW, TAKEN AS AN INTEGRATED
PACKAGE, ALL OF THESE DIVERSIFY
00:41:19OHIO'S ECONOMY AND ACHIEVE A
CROSSOVER OF SORTS, WHERE WE CAN
00:41:24MAINTAIN A VIBRANT MANUFACTURING
CLIMATE.
00:41:28WE WANT TO DO THIS DEAL AND THE
CARS AND ALL OF THOSE THINGS,
00:41:34AND A LITTLE BIT OF CHANGE IN
THE CAP TAX.
00:41:36HELPING THE SMALL BUSINESSES AND
SUPPLIERS GROW, AND SMALL
00:41:43BUSINESSES, THEY ARE THE ONES
WHO WILL TAKE A CHANCE ON PEOPLE
00:41:47WHO OTHERS CONSIDER MARGINAL
WORKERS.
00:41:48WE CAN SPARK A FIRE OF THE
CUTTING EDGE COMPANIES AND THE
00:41:57DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGIES THAT
HAVE THE GREATEST POTENTIAL FOR
00:42:00JOB GROWTH.
AND THERE WAS A GREAT ARTICLE WE
00:42:05HAD ONLINE.
AND LOOK AT THE ONES THAT ARE
00:42:11REALLY SKYROCKETING IN THE
COUNTRY.
00:42:133-D PRINTING.
THE TELEMEDICINE DEVICES THAT
00:42:26MAKE IT POSSIBLE.
I.T. SERVICES.
00:42:29FINANCIAL SERVICES.
AND THEY CONTINUE TO BE KNOWN AS
00:42:40THE RUST BELTS.
HE HAS BEEN AROUND FOR ANOTHER
00:42:50HUNDRED YEARS.
NO ONE LIKES RUST.
00:42:54WE NEED THE NEW ECONOMY IN THIS
STATE.
00:42:58AS OUR POPULATION AGES AND MORE
BABY BOOMERS RETIRE, THEY HELP
00:43:06US KEEP OUR YOUNG PEOPLE AND
HELP US ATTRACT NEW ONES.
00:43:08BUT WHEN COMBINED WITH THE COOL
FACTOR WE ARE SEEIOG CREATED IN
00:43:13OUR CITIES AS WELL AS STATE'S
LOW COST OF LIVING, WE CAN TRULY
00:43:20TAKE OUR STATE TO THE NEXT LEVEL
WITH BETTER, MORE EXCITING
00:43:22OPPORTUNITIES.
AND MOST OF IT, IF IT IS BASED
00:43:40ON A GOOD, LOGICAL ARGUMENT, I
AM FINE.
00:43:42BUT HERE IS WHAT I'M GOING TO
SUGGEST TO YOU.
00:43:45IF WE LOOK BACK ON OHIO, AND WE
ARE ONLY BIG, HEAVY
00:43:52MANUFACTURING, AND WE FORGET THE
CLOUD COMPUTING, WHERE WE NOW
00:43:56HAVE A $1 BILLION INVESTMENT,
THE DATA ANALYTICS THAT IBM
00:44:01BROUGHT TO OUR STATE, THE
MEDICAL DEVICE COMPANIES, THE
00:44:04MEDICAL IMAGING COMPANIES, THE
NEW I.T. SERVICES, THE NEW
00:44:08FINANCIAL SERVICES, THAT IS
WHERE THE JOBS ARE, FOLKS.
00:44:10THAT IS WHERE THE WORLD IS
GOING.
00:44:12YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUNG PEOPLE IN
THIS STATE?
00:44:14IF THEY GRADUATE AND GET AN
EXCITING JOB, THEY ARE NOT GOING
00:44:21ANYWHERE.
WE HAVE GOT A LOW COST OF
00:44:23LIVING.
AND THAT IS REALLY WHAT THIS IS
00:44:31ALL ABOUT.
SO I WANT TO THINK ABOUT THIS.
00:44:33I BELIEVE THE FUTURE OF OUR
STATE IS AT RISK.
00:44:40THIS IS NOT ABOUT JOHN KASICH.
THIS IS ABOUT OUR PRECIOUS STATE
00:44:46AND HOW IT WILL LOOK, BECAUSE
THE DECISIONS WE MAKE NOW ARE
00:44:49THE DECISIONS THAT REALLY AFFECT
US FARTHER DOWN THE ROAD.
00:44:51YOU KNOW, LOOK.
ANOTHER CRITICAL PART OF OUR
00:44:56ECONOMIC REVIVAL IS EDUCATION.
OUR COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES
00:45:00UNDERSTAND THIS, AND I HAVE GOT
TO TELL YOU, THEY HAVE BEEN
00:45:04HEROIC.
I DO NOT THINK THERE IS ANOTHER
00:45:09STATE IN AMERICA WHERE THE
PRESIDENT OF OUR UNIVERSITIES
00:45:11AND CORINTHIAN COLLEGES COLLEGES
HAVE A BETTER RELATIONSHIP WITH
00:45:14THE GOVERNOR.
WE WORK TOGETHER HAND AND GLOVE
00:45:15-- WHERE THE PRESIDENTS OF OUR
UNIVERSITIES AND COMMUNITY
00:45:25COLLEGES HAVE A BETTER
RELATIONSHIP WITH THE GOVERNOR.
00:45:26I SAID, LOOK, WE ARE NOT GOING
TO SPREAD THE PEANUT BUTTER
00:45:32ACROSS THE WHOLE SLICE OF RED.
-- BREAD.
00:45:35HELPING THOSE PEOPLE WHO NEED
HELP WITHOUT TAKING STUFF FOR
00:45:43YOUR SELF.
YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED, THEY GOT
00:45:46TO BUILD THESE NEW CENTER, THE
NEW TECHNOLOGIES, SO PEOPLE
00:45:51COULD LEARN THE OIL AND GAS
INDUSTRY.
00:45:52IT NEVER WOULD HAVE HAPPENED
BEFORE.
00:45:54WHAT ABOUT OUR FUNDING FORMULA?
I TELL OTHERS AID ABOUT OUR
00:46:01FUNDING FORMULA, AND THEY CANNOT
BELIEVE IT.
00:46:02THE UNIVERSITIES SAID THEY WILL
NOT TAKE ONE SINGLE DIME OF
00:46:06PUBLIC MONEY UNTIL A STUDENT
COMPLETES A COURSE, GETS A
00:46:10CERTIFICATE, OR GRADUATES.
THAT IS UNBELIEVABLE, AND THAT
00:46:15HELPS OUR STUDENTS GET THROUGH
SCHOOL QUICKER, TO HAVE MORE
00:46:17ATTENTION PLACED ON THEM WHEN
THEY ARE IN SCHOOL, AND ALL
00:46:21THESE FOLKS HAVE GONE ALONG WITH
IT.
00:46:23WE WILL HAVE THIS BIG TASK
FORCE, AND WE WILL GET INTO YOUR
00:46:28COST.
MY FRIEND KEITH, HE FEELS ABOUT
00:46:32THIS AS PASSIONATELY AS WE DO.
I WANT TO GIVE IT A CHANCE.
00:46:36WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A STUDY,
AND WE ARE TO LOOK AT EVERYTHING
00:46:41THAT DRIVES THE COST UP AT OUR
UNIVERSITIES.
00:46:44ACROSS THE STATE, THIS HAS
TOUCHED A NERVE.
00:46:46THEY HAVE EDITORIALIZED IN FAVOR
OF THIS PLAN, AND THEY HAVE SAID
00:46:51WE WILL JOIN KASICH IN FAVOR,
AND WE WILL JOIN ROSENBERGER, AS
00:46:57WELL, AND WE WILL SLICE THESE
UNIVERSITIES IF THEY DO NOT GET
00:47:02THIS MISSION ACCOMPLISHED OVER
THE PERIOD OF THE NEXT YEAR, AND
00:47:06SOME OF THEM ARE HERE TONIGHT,
AND GIVE THEM A ROUND OF
00:47:09APPLAUSE FOR THEIR LEADERSHIP AT
THESE UNIVERSITIES.
00:47:10[APPLAUSE]
YOU KNOW, THEY ARE GOING ALONG
00:47:20WITH THIS IDEA OF TWO-YEAR
SCHOOL IN NALA TO AWARD A
00:47:24BACHELOR DEGREE.
UNBELIEVABLE.
00:47:26AND THEY ARE GOING TO ADOPT NEW
ONLINE COMPETENCY-BASED COURSES,
00:47:32SO IF YOU ARE A NURSE AND ARE 32
AND WENT TO GET A BIGGER
00:47:35CERTIFICATE, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO
GO ONLINE AND GET THAT DONE, AND
00:47:38YOU WILL BE ABLE TO TAKE THOSE
COURSES, AND YOU WILL NOT EVEN
00:47:42HAVE TO SIT IN A CLASSROOM.
IT IS SORT OF LIKE WHAT WE SAID
00:47:48TO THE VETERANS, IF YOU CAN
DRIVE A TRUCK FROM KABUL TO KA
00:47:53NDUHAR, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO
THIS.
00:47:57AND GOING ONLINE AND POSTING
CURRICULUM.
00:48:03WE ALL WANT PEOPLE.
WE ARE WORKING AT MCDONALD'S.
00:48:05YOU THINK YOU ARE STUCK.
YOU TAKE THE ONLINE COURSE AT
00:48:11YOUR PACE, AND IF YOU PASS IT,
YOU EITHER GET A JOB WORKING AT
00:48:15THE INSURANCE COMPANY, OR YOU
CAN ALSO GET A CERTIFICATE AND A
00:48:20CREDENTIAL FOR THE FACT THAT YOU
NOW HAVE A SCALE.
00:48:21WE NOW HAVE TO MAKE SURE WE GIVE
HOPE TO PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY
00:48:25ARE STUCK, AND THAT IS WHAT
THESE UNIVERSITIES ARE
00:48:31COOPERATING WITH US ON, SO LET'S
SEE HOW IT GOES, AND, KEITH, I
00:48:35AM PROMISING YOU, AND I AM
PROMISING YOU HERE TONIGHT, IF
00:48:39THEY DO NOT COME BACK WITH A
PLAN, IT WILL BE A CUP DAY FOR
00:48:43THEM, BUT LET'S GIVE THEM A
LITTLE TIME, AND WE WILL HAVE A
00:48:46TASK FORCE, AND I HOPE YOU WILL
BE A MAJOR PART OF IT.
00:48:48WITH A FREEZE ON TUITION, MORE
STUDENTS CAN AFFORD COLLEGE,
00:48:54HOPEFULLY FINISH WITHOUT THE
SAME KIND OF HUGE DEBTS, AND WE
00:48:57HAVE MILLIONS IN THIS STUDENT
DEBT RELIEF FUND.
00:48:59HONESTLY, I THINK IT IS LIKE A
SYMBOL IN THE OCEAN -- A THIMBLE
00:49:14IN THE OCEAN.
IF YOU TAKE AN ON DEMAND JOB AND
00:49:16YOU STAY IN OHIO 45 YEARS, WE
WILL GIVE YOU THE HELP THAT YOU
00:49:21WANT.
WE THINK IT IS ABSOLUTELY
00:49:22CRITICAL.
NOW, THE STRATEGY OF TAKING IT
00:49:24AND THRIVING, IT IS A MODEL FOR
THE COUNTRY.
00:49:28BUT IT IS ALSO A MODEL FOR OUR
K-12 LEADERS, WHO OFTEN STRUGGLE
00:49:34TO IMPROVE AND INNOVATE.
I DO NOT UNDERSTAND ALL OF THE
00:49:44REASONS.
I UNDERSTAND SOME OF THEM.
00:49:45IT IS NOT FAIR TO OHIO'S
CHILDREN, AND IT IS NOT FAIR TO
00:49:48THE DEDICATED TEACHERS WHO TEACH
WHEN THE INNOVATIONS ARE NOT
00:49:52BROUGHT.
WE HAVE MADE OUR EDUCATION
00:49:56SYSTEM A PRIORITY, AND THINK
ABOUT THIS.
00:49:57WE ARE GOING TO THE GOVERNMENT,
2%, TWO POINT 5%, AND WE PUT $1
00:50:04BILLION INTO K-12 FUNDING, $1
BILLION.
00:50:07NOW, WE ARE GOING TO STICK $700
MILLION MORE INTO K-12
00:50:14EDUCATION.
I CHECKED ON THIS, RANDY.
00:50:161.7 BILLION DOLLARS OF
INVESTMENT OVER THESE FOUR
00:50:21YEARS, THE LARGEST INVESTMENT IN
EDUCATION IN THE HISTORY IN THE
00:50:25STATE OF OHIO BECAUSE WE
CONSIDER EDUCATION AND K-12
00:50:28EDUCATION TO BE A TOP PRIORITY,
AND I HOPE YOU AGREE WITH THAT.
00:50:31[APPLAUSE]
LET ME TELL YOU WHAT THE
00:50:41UNDERLYING PHILOSOPHY IS.
LOOK.
00:50:43I AND THE GOVERNOR, RIGHT?
I DON'T REPRESENT A DISTRICT, SO
00:50:48I HAVE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO TAKE
THIS MONEY AND ALLOCATE IT
00:50:50ACROSS THE DATE IN THE FAIREST
WAY POSSIBLE, SO WHAT ARE WE
00:50:55SAYING?
IF YOU CAN DO MORE FOR YOURSELF,
00:50:58YOU SHOULD, BECAUSE THERE ARE
OTHERS WHO ARE WORSE OFF IN NEED
00:51:04MORE HELP.
WE CANNOT TAKE FROM SCHOOLS THAT
00:51:07ARE WORSE OFF -- LET ME REPEAT,
WE CANNOT TAKE FROM SCHOOLS THAT
00:51:11ARE WORSE OFF AND GIVE IT TO
THOSE WHO HAVE MORE.
00:51:13WE OFTEN DO THAT TODAY.
IT IS NOT FAIR.
00:51:16WE HAVE GOT TO BE BETTER THAN
THAT.
00:51:20IT IS ABOUT CAPACITY TO HELP
YOURSELF.
00:51:25AND WE SAY THAT IF YOU ARE POOR
IN PROPERTY TAXES AND POUR IT
00:51:32INCOME, AND YOU HAVE MORE
STUDENTS, WE OUGHT TO DO MORE TO
00:51:35HELP YOU, BUT IF YOU ARE
WEALTHIER IN PROPERTY TAXES AND
00:51:39WILL FEAR IT INCOME, THEN MAYBE
YOU ARE LOSING STUDENTS, AND
00:51:43PEOPLE SHOULD NOT DO AS MUCH FOR
YOU.
00:51:46YOU CAN DO MORE TO HELP
YOURSELF.
00:51:47YOU KNOW, EDUCATION FUNDING IS
NOT ABOUT BUILDINGS, EQUIPMENT,
00:51:52OR ADULTS, AND I WILL TELL YOU
ONE MORE THING THAT IT IS NOT
00:51:55ABOUT.
IT IS NOT ABOUT A STATE
00:51:57PRINTOUT.
IT IS NOT ABOUT GETTING SOME
00:52:03STATE PRINTOUT TO LOOK WHETHER
YOU HAVE GOT A MINUS OR A PLUS.
00:52:04IT IS ABOUT DISTRIBUTING
PRECIOUS RESOURCES AS BEST AS WE
00:52:09CAN TO BE IN A POSITION WHERE
KIDS CAN ALL HAVE AN EQUAL
00:52:16CHANCE.
SOMEBODY SAID, WELL, YOU KNOW,
00:52:19WE PAY ALL OF THESE TAXES IN THE
SUBURBAN AREAS, AND LOOK AT ALL
00:52:22THE MONEY THEY GET IN CLEVELAND.
I WILL GIVE YOU ABOUT 25% OF THE
00:52:28STUDENTS IN CLEVELAND WHO HAVE
SO MANY CHALLENGES.
00:52:29YOU GREW UP IN A FAMILY WHERE
THE FAMILY IS NOT STRONG.
00:52:36LET ME SAY THAT.
YOU GROW UP IN A NEIGHBORHOOD,
00:52:42YOU HEAR GUNSHOTS AT NIGHT.
THEY DESERVE A CHANCE, TOO, AND
00:52:53SO, THE BOTTOM LINE FOR ME IS
LET'S HELP THOSE WHO CANNOT HELP
00:52:56THEMSELVES, AND LET'S HAVE SOME
PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY IN THOSE
00:52:59AREAS WHERE THEY CAN.
NOW, LOOK.
00:53:00THIS FORMULA, WE HAVE MONKEYED
AROUND WITH IT FOR SO LONG.
00:53:05THERE ARE SOME THING'S IN HERE
THAT I AM NOT EVEN THRILLED
00:53:10WITH, BUT WE ARE LOOKING AT IT,
AND WE ARE WORKING AT IT, BUT I
00:53:13WOULD ASK YOU AS MEMBERS OF THE
LEGISLATURE, KEEP THE PRINCIPAL.
00:53:20KEEP THE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLE.
IT IS GOOD FOR OUR STATE.
00:53:24IT IS GOOD FOR OUR KIDS.
IT IS GOOD FOR OUR EDUCATORS,
00:53:27AND I BELIEVE IT CAN WORK.
WE HAVE DONE SOME FANTASTIC
00:53:30THINGS.
REMEMBER ALL OF THE HASSLE?
00:53:32NOW WE ARE GETTING KIDS WHO CAN
READ, AND WE ARE NOT GETTING
00:53:39THEM IN THE SIX OR THE SEVENTH
GRADE.
00:53:41AND THEN WE FIND OUT THEY CANNOT
READ.
00:53:44THAT IS A RIPOFF.
WE CANNOT DO THAT, SO THE THIRD
00:53:48GRADE READING GUARANTEE IS
TURNING OUT TO BE A VERY
00:53:52SIGNIFICANT SUCCESS.
HOW ABOUT THE STRAIGHT A FUND?
00:53:54WE HAD TO GIVE THEM INCENTIVES
TO THINK ABOUT NEW WAYS TO DO
00:53:59THINGS, SO I WENT THROUGH THE
ROTUNDA OF THE OTHER DAY, AND
00:54:06THEY HAD A GATHERING OF THE
STRAIGHT A KIDS, AND THERE WERE
00:54:08THREE OF THEM, 12, 11, AND 10,
AND THEY CAME UP TO ME, AND THEY
00:54:14SAID, MR. GOVERNOR, CAN YOU TAKE
A LOOK AT MY 3-D PRINTING
00:54:19PROJECT?
I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT.
00:54:20THIS LITTLE 10-YEAR-OLD GIRL IS
LIKE GRABBING ME BY MY CUP --
00:54:26CUFFS, COME OVER HERE AND LOOK
BECAUSE I AM EXCITED ABOUT
00:54:33LEARNING, BECAUSE I AM EXCITED
ABOUT BEING IN SCHOOL.
00:54:34THANK YOU FOR THAT STRAIGHT A
FUND, IN THERE WILL BE MORE,
00:54:41MORE SCHOOL CHOICE, GETTING
FAMILIES MORE CONTROL OVER HOW
00:54:44AND WHERE TO EDUCATE THEIR KIDS,
INCLUDING MORE OPTIONS IN CAREER
00:54:46AND TECHNICAL AND VOCATIONAL.
PARENTS, TECHNICAL AND
00:54:53VOCATIONAL EDUCATION IS OK.
IT IS GOOD, OK?
00:54:54IT IS GOOD.
[APPLAUSE]
00:54:56AND IF YOU ARE A KID AND WENT TO
BE A NEWSPAPER REPORTER, YOU CAN
00:55:12MAKE A DEAL WITH YOUR SCHOOL
BOARD OR YOU CAN GO AND WORK AT
00:55:14THE WIMBLEDON -- WILMINGTON
PAPER AND REALLY GET FIRED UP
00:55:20ABOUT WHAT EDUCATION IS ABOUT
AND WHAT A CAREER IS ABOUT.
00:55:22INDIVIDUAL EDUCATION PLANS, AND
OUR BUDGET BUILDS ON THESE
00:55:28IMPORTANT STEPS FORWARD WITH NEW
APPROACHES TO AREAS LIKE RAISING
00:55:30UP GUIDANCE COUNSELORS SO THEY
CAN BETTER HELP OUR KIDS
00:55:35UNDERSTAND THEIR ABILITIES,
ASSESS THEIR INTERESTS, EXPLAIN
00:55:38WHAT CAREERS ARE AVAILABLE, AND
HELP GET ON A PATH TO ACHIEVE
00:55:41THEIR POTENTIAL.
AN EXTRA SET THAT SPEND THEIR
00:55:47HANDS GUARDING THE LUNCH ROOM OR
ROLLING THE BASKETBALL OUT IN
00:55:49THE GYM, NO, THEY ARE CRITICAL
PEOPLE FOR OUR CHILDREN IN K-12
00:55:53AND IN COLLEGE.
[APPLAUSE]
00:55:54LET ME GIVE YOU ANOTHER ONE
HERE.
00:56:05THE COLLEGE CLASS.
I WHAT EVERYONE TO KNOW WE ARE
00:56:08PUTTING MORE MONEY INTO TRAIN
TEACHERS SO THEY CAN ADMINISTER
00:56:11THE COURSES.
YOU REALIZE IF YOU TAKE THAT IN
00:56:13HIGH SCHOOL, IT COSTS YOU
NOTHING?
00:56:14DID YOU ALSO KNOW THAT A STUDENT
CAN GET THIS IN ANY SCHOOL IN
00:56:20THE EIGHTH?
AND THERE ARE A LOT OF PARENTS
00:56:26WHO ARE TOTALLY UNAWARE OF THIS.
THIS IS NOT RIGHT.
00:56:28GET OUT IN YOUR DISTRICT,
COLLEGE CREDIT PLUS, AND DON'T
00:56:38TAKE NO FROM YOUR SCHOOL WHEN
THEY SAY WE CANNOT DO IT.
00:56:42THAT IS THE SITUATION, CALL MY
OFFICE.
00:56:43WE WILL HELP YOU OUT, OK?
PEGGY, EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION
00:56:53, AND BACK IN 2011, 5700
PRESCHOOL SLOTS.
00:56:57WE ARE GOING TO 17,000 PRESCHOOL
SLOTS FOR KIDS.
00:57:06THEY WILL BE BETTER PREPARED FOR
SCHOOL.
00:57:12CUT BACK RED TAPE.
IF YOU HAVE GOT HIGH-PERFORMING
00:57:26SCHOOLS, LET'S NOT HASSLE THEM.
AND CHARTER SCHOOLS.
00:57:37WE NEED THEM.
AT TIMES, THEY HAVE NOT PROVIDED
00:57:52ENOUGH GUIDANCE.
THIS IS FOR THOSE WHO HAVE TIED
00:57:56-- HAS A BLIND EYE.
AND WE WILL AND -- BAN THEM.
00:58:08WE WILL INCENTIVIZE THEM.
HERE IS THE THING.
00:58:12IF YOU ARE NOT LOVING KIDS, IF
THAT IS NOT WHAT YOU ARE DOING
00:58:18WITH THE CHARTER, YOU ARE TRYING
THE BEST, WE WANT YOU.
00:58:23AND THE GREATEST SUPERINTENDENT
IN MODERATE OHIO HISTORY --
00:58:27MODERN OHIO HISTORY, TELL US
WHAT THESE IDEAS ARE.
00:58:32WE WANT TO HEAR THEM.
BUT ALSO, JUST BECAUSE A CHARTER
00:58:39SCHOOL IS NOT PRODUCING THESD,
IT DOES NOT MEAN THEY ARE
00:58:44FAILING.
THESE CHARTER SCHOOL HAVE KIDS.
00:58:46IF THEY WERE NOT IN THE CHARTER
SCHOOL, THEY WOULD BE OUT ON THE
00:58:55STREETS, SO WE NEED TO FIGURE
OUT A WAY TO MAKE SURE THAT WE
00:58:57GIVE EVERYBODY A CHANCE.
NO SITUATION HERE.
00:59:03WE ARE NOT LOVING OUR KIDS, BUT
LET'S NOT JUDGE SOMEBODY AS NOT
00:59:05DOING THEIR JOB BECAUSE WE HAVE
INHERITED A GROUP OF STUDENTS
00:59:11WHO ARE STRUGGLING, AND WE WILL
HELP THEM TO GET UP, PLAIN AND
00:59:15SIMPLE.
YOU KNOW, ALL OF THESE IDEAS, WE
00:59:19HAVE TO GET AWAY FROM THE OLD
AGRARIAN IS DUMB.
00:59:20-- AGRARIAN CLASSROOM.
WE HAVE TO BREAK FREE OF THAT
00:59:29MODEL, AND IT IS REALLY HARD TO
DO.
00:59:30I WOULD LIKE ALL OF YOU TO HELP
ME DO IT.
00:59:33AND THIS TECHNICAL VOCATIONAL
SCHOOL, BECAUSE THE KIDS ARE
00:59:52TRYING TO GET IN BECAUSE THEY
ARE SO EXCITED ABOUT LEARNING.
00:59:58I THINK WE WILL PROBABLY GET
THAT DONE.
01:00:05IF YOU WANT TO INNOVATE AND
CHANGE, YOU COME AND SEE US, AND
01:00:21THEY HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY THEY
DESERVE AND NEED.
01:00:23WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
WELL, WE ARE TAKING ON INFANT
01:00:42MORTALITY.
WE STARTED IN MY FIRST EIGHT OF
01:00:47THE STATE.
MAKING SURE THOSE MOST AT RISK.
01:01:00IF YOU LIVE IN A ZONE, A ZONE OF
ACUTE PROBLEMS, YOU'RE
01:01:03AUTOMATICALLY ALL OF FIVE AND
DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES AND I
01:01:22WOULD SAY THEY ARE GETTING THE
LARGEST RAISED IN THIS BUDGET.
01:01:25WE WENT TO GET THEM IN A SETTING
WHERE THEY CAN PROSPER.
01:01:30-- WE WANT TO GET THEM IN A
SETTING WHERE THEY CAN PROSPER.
01:01:36SOME ARE IN AN INSTITUTION.
WE WANT TO GET THEM IN A HOME,
01:01:42AND SOME WHO WANT TO BE IN AN
INSTITUTION, THEY CAN STAY.
01:01:45WE CAN DO BETTER, AND WE WANT TO
DO THAT.
01:01:49WE ARE DOING THIS THROUGH
MANAGED CARE, STRONGER HOUSING
01:01:58SUPPORT.
WE HAULED OUT THESE SERVICES,
01:02:04AND WE ARE TRYING TO REBUILD
THEM, AND I NEVER WANT TO READ A
01:02:08TORY IN OHIO LIKE THE TERRIBLE
STORY IN VIRGINIA WHERE A DAD
01:02:11COULD NOT GET HIS SON A BAD -- I
NEVER WANT TO READ A STORY IN
01:02:16OHIO.
A TRAGEDY HAPPENED, SO TRACY IS
01:02:21WORKING HARD TO OPEN UP MORE
DAYS AND MORE HEADS.
01:02:23-- MORE BEDS.
THE GOOD LORD HAS GIVEN PEOPLE
01:02:34GOOD BRAINS TO HELP DEAL WITH
THE CHEMICAL IMBALANCE.
01:02:36WE ARE GOING TO GET BETTER AND
BETTER WITH THIS, WHERE SOMEONE
01:02:40WITH BIPOLAR DISEASE CAN LEAD A
NORMAL LIFE, AND MANY DO.
01:02:44WE HAVE TO KEEP PUSHING, AND THE
LORD WANTS US TO DO THAT.
01:02:46LET'S TALK ABOUT PUBLIC
ASSISTANCE.
01:02:49WE WANT TO GET PEOPLE BACK ON
THEIR FEET.
01:02:54WE HAVE A COMMON SENSE APPROACH.
WE WANT TO BEGIN TO TREAT
01:02:58EVERYBODY IN A HOLISTIC MANNER.
YOU GO TO A WELFARE OFFICE.
01:03:02YOU GO TO THIS BUILDING AND THAT
LINE, AND YOU HAVE GOT
01:03:05CASEWORKERS.
WE CAN FIGURE IT OUT.
01:03:06-- WE CAN'T FIGURE IT OUT.
WE HAVE GOT SOMEONE ON PUBLIC
01:03:16ASSISTANCE, AND ALL TOO OFTEN,
WE DON'T SAY, WHY ARE YOU HERE?
01:03:22WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM?
WHY ARE YOU IN POVERTY?
01:03:23AND CYNTHIA IS JUST AWESOME.
BREAK DOWN THE SILOS.
01:03:30YOU GO INTO A WELFARE OFFICE,
AND HERE IS WHAT IT SHOULD LOOK
01:03:37LIKE.
WE ARE GOING TO GIVE YOU HELP.
01:03:38FOOD STAMPS.
RELIEF.
01:03:42WE WANT TO KNOW, WHAT IS THE
PROBLEM?
01:03:43WHAT DO YOU NEED?
HOW CAN WE TRAIN YOU?
01:03:48AND, BY THE WAY, WE ARE NOT
GOING TO TRAIN YOU FOR
01:03:53UNDERWATER BASKET WEAVING.
WE WILL TRAIN YOU SO YOU CAN GET
01:03:55BACK UP ON YOUR FEET, BECAUSE
WELFARE SHOULD NOT BE A WAY OF
01:04:02LIFE BUT A WAY STATION FOR YOU
TO BECOME INDEPENDENT AND WHERE
01:04:05YOU CAN BECOME A FANTASTIC ROLE
MODEL OR YOUR KIDS.
01:04:06THAT IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT.
[APPLAUSE]
01:04:11IT IS NOT EASY.
I AM DOWN IN CINCINNATI, WHERE
01:04:20THEY ARE DOING A PRETTY GOOD JOB
DOWN THERE, AND THEY ARE WORKING
01:04:22HARD.
WE THINK THEY CAN MAKE MORE
01:04:24IMPROVEMENT, SO I MET NET
TAUSCHER.
01:04:26-- NET NET TAUSCHER -- NATASHA.
SHE IS WORKING OUT AS A
01:04:38CASEWORKER.
IT TOOK HER NINE YEARS TO GET
01:04:41OFF.
I WOULD LOVE TO TELL YOU IT IS
01:04:46GOING TO BE SIMPLE, BUT I
BELIEVE THAT BY CHANGING WELFARE
01:04:49-- AND, BY THE WAY, IF YOU MAKE
MORE MONEY IN YOUR JOB, WE ARE
01:04:54NOT GOING TO TAKE AWAY YOUR
DAYCARE.
01:04:55YOU'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO HAVE
YOUR CHILD CARE BECAUSE WE DO
01:05:01NOT WANT TO PENALIZE YOU FOR
GETTING AHEAD.
01:05:02[APPLAUSE]
ANOTHER THING WE NEED TO DO.
01:05:05WE ALL SHOULD LOVE THIS, AND I
THINK WE ALL DO.
01:05:09THESE FOLKS WHO WORK IN THE
SOCIAL SERVICE JOB THAT WORK
01:05:17HARD, A LOT OF BUREAUCRACY IS
HARD, CASEWORK, THEY ARE EXCITED
01:05:20ABOUT THIS.
THAT IS WHAT I AM TOLD.
01:05:21ANOTHER PLACE IS OUR LAW
ENFORCEMENT AND JUSTICE SYSTEMS.
01:05:28WHEN WE SEE LARGE SECTIONS THAT
THINK THEIR VOICES ARE NOT BEING
01:05:39HEARD, OR SOMETHING AS IMPORTANT
AS THE JUSTICE SYSTEM, IT REALLY
01:05:43DOES NOT WORK FOR THEM.
WE HAD BETTER PAY ATTENTION.
01:05:46THIS IS THE ONLY STATEWIDE
EFFORT, THE ONLY ONE WE KNOW OF,
01:05:55TO EXAMINE THE RELATIONSHIP
BETWEEN COMMUNITIES AND THE
01:05:56POLICE WHO SERVE THEM.
WE ARE HOLDING LISTENING
01:06:01SESSIONS ACROSS OHIO SO THE
PEOPLE AND COMMUNITIES WHO HAVE
01:06:04STORIES TO TELL, WHO HAVE
CONCERNS, PAIN, ANGER, THEY
01:06:10DESERVE TO BE HEARD, AND WE WANT
TO TURN THE INTO ACTION NOW, AND
01:06:17WE WENT TO TURN THIS INTO AN
ACTION PLAN THAT ANYONE CAN PUT
01:06:20IN PLACE RIGHT AWAY TO
STRENGTHEN THE FABRIC OF WHO
01:06:23THEY ARE IN THE ACRE AND MORE
INCLUSIVE.
01:06:25PLAIN AND SIMPLE.
NOW --
01:06:29[APPLAUSE]
ALICIA, LAST TIME I CHECKED,
01:06:37DEMOCRAT.
SONDRA WILLIAMS, DEMOCRAT.
01:06:41AND NINA TURNER.
JOHN IS OUR CHAIRMAN, FORMER
01:06:53HEAD OF THE HIGHWAY PATROL, THEY
ARE WORKING TOGETHER
01:06:56BEAUTIFULLY, AND TONIGHT, I WANT
TO SALUTE NINA TURNER.
01:06:58SHE HAS DONE A FANTASTIC JOB ON
THIS COMMISSION.
01:07:04SHE HAS DONE A FANTASTIC JOB.
[APPLAUSE]
01:07:06YOU KNOW, IT IS SO FUNNY.
IN POLITICS TODAY COLEY PRAISED
01:07:13A DEMOCRAT, OR YOU HAVE GOT AN
IDEA ABOUT POLICE COMMISSION OR
01:07:15SOMETHING, PEOPLE ARE, WHAT WERE
YOU DOING THAT FOR?
01:07:20THAT IS NOT REPUBLICAN.
WHO CARES?
01:07:22WE ARE NOT HERE TO SERVE A PARTY
OR AN IDEOLOGY.
01:07:28WE ARE HERE TO SOLVE PROBLEMS,
AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE
01:07:32TRYING TO DO.
[APPLAUSE]
01:07:33OK.
SO NOW THE TIME HAS COME TO
01:07:44HONOR SOME PEOPLE WHO HAVE REAL
COURAGE, BECAUSE WHEN WE SEE
01:07:46THEM, IT GIVES US SOME MORE
COURAGE, SO I WAS AT NATIONWIDE
01:07:56CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL, VISITING
SOME FRIENDS WHO HAVE A DAUGHTER
01:08:07WHO HAS SOME SORT OF TUMOR IN
HER BRAIN.
01:08:10THEY THINK THEY GOT IT ALL, AND
I WENT TO SEE HER, NOT BECAUSE I
01:08:16AM A GREAT GUY, BUT MAYBE I
COULD DO SOMETHING TO BE GOOD.
01:08:21I'VE MET THE NURSE.
AMAZING.
01:08:27HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO AN ICU?
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN ON THE
01:08:36ONCOLOGY FLOOR?
THESE PEOPLE ARE UNBELIEVABLE,
01:08:41THESE NURSES.
YOU KNOW, I HUGGED THAT NURSE IN
01:08:46MY FRIEND'S DAUGHTER'S ROOM, AND
I AM CHOKING UP, AND I AM SAYING
01:08:55GOD BLESS YOU, GOD BLESS WHAT
YOU ARE DOING.
01:08:56THINK ABOUT THE WAY THEY VISIT
WITH US WHEN OUR FAMILIES ARE IN
01:09:01DISTRESS OR WHEN WE ARE IN
DISTRESS.
01:09:02JUST THINK ABOUT WHAT THAT IS
LIKE, AND THEN WHAT ABOUT THE
01:09:07PUBLIC HEALTH NURSES WAS TUMOR I
MEAN, WE FIND OUT WE MAY HAVE --
01:09:15AND THEN WHAT ABOUT THE PUBLIC
HEALTH NURSES?
01:09:16I MEAN, WE FIND THAT WE MAY HAVE
EBOLA.
01:09:18YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE WHAT SHE
HAD TO GO THROUGH TO GET THIS
01:09:27FIXED, AND NOW, SHE IS GOING TO
REPRESENT ALL OF THE NURSES.
01:09:31YOU GO INTO A SETTING -- BY THE
WAY, IN THAT HOSPITAL, I RAN
01:09:42INTO MY FRIEND, MIKE.
HE WAS THERE VISITING HIS
01:09:50GODDAUGHTER, SIX YEARS OLD, WHO
JUST DIED.
01:09:52I WENT UP THAT WAY, AND MIKE IS
A GOOD MAN.
01:10:01AND YOU LOOK AT THESE PEOPLE IN
THESE HOSPITALS, AND THEY JUST
01:10:11DO IT DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY,
AND THEY STRUGGLE TO KEEP
01:10:16SERVING US, SO, JACKIE, YOU ARE
GOING TO REPRESENT ALL OF THE
01:10:19NURSES IN OHIO, BECAUSE WE LOVE
YOU.
01:10:24WE LOVE THE NURSES IN OHIO,
DON'T WE, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,
01:10:28AND WE WANT TO GIVE THEM A
COURAGE AWARD.
01:10:30[APPLAUSE]
OK, JACKIE, THANK YOU.
01:11:05NOW, ONE FAULT EVENING NOT LONG
AGO, A MAN AND A WOMAN CAME UPON
01:11:13A TEAM -- ONE FAULT EVENING --
FALL EVENING NOT LONG AGO, A M@N
01:11:21AND A WOMAN CAME UPON AN
ACCIDENT.
01:11:27LET'S DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
WHO ELSE.
01:11:31THIS WAS NOT A FENDER BENDER,
OK?
01:11:37THE CAR BURST INTO FLAMES, BUT
BRITTANY ROBINSON AND HER
01:11:43THEN-FIANCÉ, SO SHANE, YOU GOT
BRITTANY TO SAY YES, IS THAT
01:11:54WHAT I AM TO GATHER?
THEY FOUND A MAN AND WOMAN
01:11:58CRITICALLY INJURED AND
UNCONSCIOUS, AND BRITTANY CALLED
01:12:01911, AND SHANE PULLED OPEN THE
PASSENGER DOOR AND THEN WENT
01:12:07BACK TO REMOVE THE MAN AS HIGHER
BEGAN TO LITERALLY CONSUME -- AS
01:12:15FIRE BEGAN TO LITERALLY CONSUME
THE PASSENGER COMPARTMENT.
01:12:16BRITTANY AND SHANE, IF THEY HAD
NOT DONE THIS, THOSE PEOPLE
01:12:22WOULD NOT HAVE SURVIVED.
HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THE GOOD
01:12:25SAMARITAN?
THE GOOD SAMARITAN GOES ALL THE
01:12:31WAY AND TRANSCENDS HISTORY.
YOU ARE GOOD SAMARITANS.
01:12:35YOU STOPPED AND YOU RISK YOUR
LIFE OR SOMEBODY ELSE.
01:12:41GOD BLESS YOU.
COME AND GET A COURAGE AWARD.
01:12:43[APPLAUSE]
THE FINAL COURAGE AWARDS THIS
01:13:31YEAR IS ACTUALLY NOT AN OHIO IN

JOSEPH UNIVERSITY IN CINCINNATI
01:13:45BUT CANNOT GO ANYMORE BECAUSE
SHE IS TOO SIX.
01:13:47SHE HAS INCURABLE, INOPERABLE
BRAIN CANCER.
01:13:53LET'S WATCH THE VIDEO.
[VIDEO CLIP PLAYS]
01:14:04?
>> I WAS TOLD THAT IT IS IN
01:14:09INTEROPERABLE -- INOPERABLE
BRAIN TUMOR, TWO YEARS AT BEST,
01:14:18AND I REMEMBER THAT HITTING
HOME, LIKE, WOW, TWO C
01:14:21HRISTMASES.
TODAY MEANS SOMETHING SO MUCH
01:14:29BIGGER THAN WHAT I CAN EVEN
UNDERSTAND.
01:14:33TO ME, IT MEANS MY FIRST COLLEGE
GAME, NOT MY LAST ONE, MY FIRST
01:14:40COLLEGE GAME.
REQUESTS FROM INDIANA, NUMBER
01:14:5422.

01:15:05>> THE BALL GOES DOWN TO LAUREN.

01:15:45GAMES, AND SHE RECEIVED AN
HONORARY DOCTORATE AT HER

JERSEY WILL HANG.
01:16:13>> DOING GOD'S WORK, WHAT HE
SENT ME HERE TO DO.
01:16:21AND I FEEL LIKE MAYBE I AM NOT
DONE YET.
01:16:29MAYBE THAT IS WHY I AM STILL
HERE.
01:16:30?
[END VIDEO CLIP]
01:16:55[APPLAUSE]
>> WELL, I TALKED TO LAUREN
01:17:06TODAY AND HER MOTHER LISA.
SHE SAID I HOPE I AM BEING A
01:17:14GOOD ROLE MODEL.
I HOPE I AM A GOOD EXAMPLE.
01:17:20CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT?
I SAID, SWEETHEART, THE LORD IS
01:17:25GOING TO HONOR YOU.
YOU ARE GOING TO WEAR ONE OF THE
01:17:30BIGGEST CROWDS BECAUSE OF YOUR
COURAGE, BECAUSE OF THE FACT
01:17:34THAT YOU ARE JUST SUCH A SPECIAL
WOMAN AND SUCH A SPECIAL ANGEL.
01:17:38WITH US IS RICK.
HE IS WITH A FOUNDATION FOR
01:17:48WHICH LAUREN HAS RAISED OVER
$1.4 MILLION.
01:17:51I DO NOT KNOW IF LAUREN IS
WATCHING.
01:17:52SHE MAY NEED.
I PROMISE YOU HER MOTHER IS
01:17:57WATCHING, SO I GOING TO GIVE
THIS METAL TO RICK, BUT MAYBE
01:18:04LAUREN COULD HEAR US FROM THIS
PLACE IN WILMINGTON TONIGHT TO
01:18:10HER HOSPITAL ROOM.
GOD BLESS YOU, LAUREN HILL.
01:18:12[APPLAUSE]
YOU KNOW, YOU CAN'T HELP BE
01:18:57INSPIRED BY THESE PEOPLE NOT
JUST BECAUSE OF THEIR COURAGE,
01:19:01BUT THEY TAKE MATTERS INTO THEIR
OWN HANDS.
01:19:04THEY ARE ROLLING UP THEIR
SLEEVES AND MAKING RINGS HAPPEN.
01:19:06WE NEED TO FOLLOW THEIR EXAMPLE
AND WE DEDICATE OURSELVES TO
01:19:11CITIZENSHIP.
START TALKING.
01:19:13DO YOU ALL KNOW ABOUT THIS?
IF A YOUNG PERSON HEARS DO NOT
01:19:22DO DRUGS, THERE IS A 50% LESS
CHANCE THEY WILL EVER DO DO IT,
01:19:26A 50% LESS CHANCE.
NOW, IN YOUR DISTRICT, YOU CAN
01:19:32SPREAD IT.
I THINK WE HAVE SPOKEN -- WELL,
01:19:35I KNOW LAST TIME I CHECKED, OVER
26,000 KIDS.
01:19:38WE GOT TEACHERS INVOLVED, AND
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN HERE IN
01:19:43WILMINGTON, I DO NOT CARE WHERE
YOU ARE, YOU'RE IN A RESTAURANT,
01:19:47YOU WALK OVER THERE, AND YOU SEE
THOSE KIDS, YOU TELL THEM TO A
01:19:49OFF THOSE DRUGS.
THIS TSUNAMI -- TELL THEM TO'S
01:19:59DAY OFF THOSE DRUGS.
-- STAY OFF THOSE DRUGS.
01:20:03DON'T LEAVE IT TO SOMEBODY ELSE.
COMMUNITY CONNECTORS.
01:20:09WE HAVE GOT PROPOSALS COMING IN.
EVERY CHILD NEEDS A MENTOR.
01:20:18I DON'T CARE WHETHER THEY ARE
POOR, MIDDLE, OR RICH.
01:20:22COMMUNITY CONNECTORS ALLOWS US
TO WORK WITH A BUSINESS OR
01:20:29FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATION IN OUR
COMMUNITY TO GO INTO THE
01:20:33SCHOOLS, AND WHAT DO WE DO WHEN
WE ARE THERE QUESTION WHAT WE
01:20:37SAY WE LOVE YOU.
WE CARE ABOUT YOU.
01:20:40YOU CAN BE SOMETHING SPECIAL.
DOWN IN CINCINNATI AT THE
01:20:44CINCINNATI COLLABORATIVE, IN A
SCHOOL DISTRICT THAT STRUGGLES
01:20:45TO GRADUATE, THIS IS NOT UNUSUAL
IN AN URBAN DISTRICT, THEY ARE
01:20:50TRYING THEIR BEST, AND THEY HAVE
GOT A LOT OF GREAT THINGS GOING
01:20:53ON, THEY HAVE ABOUT A 63%
GRADUATION RATE, BUT IN A HIGH
01:20:58SCHOOL WHERE THE MENTORS GO IN,
THEIR GRADUATION RATE IS 97%.
01:21:01THAT IS WHAT WE WANT TO DO IN
THIS STATE.
01:21:04OUR EFFORTS ON INFANT MORTALITY,
COMMUNITY LEADERS.
01:21:11OUR NEIGHBORHOODS ARE CALLING US
TO DO, AND SOMETIMES A
01:21:21GOVERNMENT CAN GET SO BIG THAT
WE JUST DO NOT THINK THERE IS A
01:21:22PLACE FOR US OR SOMEBODY ELSE
WILL DO IT, OR THE GOVERNMENT
01:21:25WILL DO IT, AND GOVERNMENT CAN
BE A VERY BLUNT INSTRUMENT.
01:21:28GOVERNMENT CAN CROWD OUT CHARITY
IF WE ARE NOT CAREFUL, AND
01:21:35SOMETIMES WE DON'T NEED ANY
GOVERNMENT TO GO AND CARE AND
01:21:37HEALTH AND CHANGE AND CHANGE THE
WORLD, LIKE THAT ONE GREAT
01:21:42LEADER USED TO SAY, SO THERE IS
ALWAYS A NEED FOR US TO GET
01:21:46INVOLVED TO PRACTICE THE VALUES
WE BELIEVE AND COMMIT OURSELVES
01:21:53TO, AND THE ONES I TALKED ABOUT
DURING THE INAUGURAL ARE THE
01:21:55ONES I THINK ARE MOST
RESPONSIBLE -- IMPORT,
01:21:59RESPONSIBILITY, EMPATHY,
TEAMWORK, WE NEED THAT IN OUR
01:22:04LEGISLATURE, REPUBLICANS AND
DEMOCRATS, FAMILY -- BOY, WE
01:22:08NEED FAMILY.
WE NEED TO STRENGTHEN THE
01:22:11FAMILY, AND FAITH, WHICH MEANS
AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE KNOW
01:22:15WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN A GREAT
OPPORTUNITY TO CHANGE THE WORLD.
01:22:18VALUES ARE WHAT GUIDE THE
CHOICES WE MAKE AND THE WAY WE
01:22:23LIVE, AND WE ONLY MAKE OURSELVES
AND OUR EIGHT AND OUR NATION
01:22:24BETTER -- MAKE OUR STATE AND OUR
NATION BETTER.
01:22:29IT WOULD BE EASY TO DRIFT.
LOOK, I HAVE GOT ALL OF THIS,
01:22:37BUT I AM GOING TO TELL YOU THIS.
WE ARE ON THE MOVE.
01:22:39WE ARE RISING.
WE ARE CREATING JOBS.
01:22:44PEOPLE ARE MORE HOPEFUL, AND YOU
KNOW WHAT IS REALLY GREAT?
01:22:51NO ONE IS BEING LEFT OUT, NO
ONE.
01:22:52IF YOU ARE POOR, IF YOU ARE
SICK, IF YOU ARE ADDICTED, WE
01:22:59WANT TO HELP YOU.
IF YOU ARE IN THE PRISON, GARY
01:23:04WILL GIVE YOU A PASS SO YOU CAN
HAVE A SECOND CHANCE, BUT IT ALL
01:23:08STARTS WITH A STRONG ECONOMY.
IF WE ARE NOT CREATING JOBS,
01:23:11LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, ALL OF THE
OTHER GOOD THINGS DO NOT HAPPEN.
01:23:15THEY JUST DO NOT HAPPEN, AND
WHAT I AM ASKING ALL OF YOU TO
01:23:20DO IS TO THINK HOW DEEP OF
CHANGING THE VERY WAY IN WHICH
01:23:24WE DO BUSINESS IN THIS STATE.
WE CAN'T TALK ABOUT IT.
01:23:30WE CAN CHANGE SOME OF IT, BUT DO
NOT MISS THE OPPORTUNITY TO
01:23:32CREATE A NEW OHIO, AND EXCITING,
NEW OHIO IN THIS 21ST CENTURY.
01:23:40THE PEOPLE WANT IT.
OH, SOMETIMES YOU'RE GOING TO
01:23:44GET CARPING AND PEOPLE POUNDING
ON YOUR DOOR AND ALL OF THIS
01:23:49OTHER STUFF, BUT WHAT WE HAVE
LEARNED OVER THE PAST FOUR
01:23:54YEARS, FOLLOW THE PLAN, THE PLAN
THAT WE KNOW WORKS, AND EVERYONE
01:23:59IN OHIO WILL BE LIFTED.
ISN'T THAT OUR JOB?
01:24:01IT IS OUR JOB TO MAKE SURE
EVERYONE IN THIS GREAT STATE
01:24:05FEELS A PART OF THE BUCKEYE
FAMILY.
01:24:06I AM OPTIMISTIC ABOUT WHAT WE
CAN ACHIEVE, AND I AM GOING TO
01:24:12BE HERE WORKING WITH YOU
SHOULDER TO SHOULDER.
01:24:13OK, I AM HERE TO SERVE.
I IN HERE TO LEAD, BUT I AM HERE
01:24:20TO SERVE, AND I KNOW AT THE END
OF THE DAY IF WE GO TOGETHER,
01:24:23THEY WILL LOOK BACK, AND THEY
WILL SAY, WOW, WHAT A GENERATION
01:24:29OF LEADERS THAT SHINED UP OHIO,
THAT SAVED OHIO, THAT MOVED OHIO
01:24:33STRONGLY INTO THE 21ST CENTURY.
YOU KNOW, THIS TIE.
01:24:42I WEAR THIS GOLD TIE WHENEVER I
