Golfing Ohio leaders "out of touch" with main street

Two OHIO leaders spend day golfing & drinking beer with PRESIDENT
 President with OHIO's Governor (John Kasich) & US House Speaker (John Boehner) 
The two OHIO leaders spent hours golfing at the Joint Base Andrews Naval Air Facility course located in suburban Maryland. After a relaxing day, they retired to the patio of the luxurious clubhouse where they enjoyed beers while watching coverage of the U.S. Open being played at the nearby Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md.
A Republican consultant and former Boehner aide, Terry Holt, claimed the House speaker was having fun while being “very relaxed and easy-going.”  

Meanwhile in OHIO thousands spend day homeless as FORECLOSURES ravage Kasich and Boehner's communities
A new report by National People’s Action shows that nearly 1 of every 20 housing units in Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Columbus have been lost in foreclosure and became bank-owned properties in the last 3 years.
OHIO is ground zero and one of the states hardest hit by the epidemic of foreclosure and joblessness caused by Wall Street. It is a state where unions have been under attack, and where hard-won labor rights that built the middle class have been stripped away from teachers and public sector workers.  Big banks (like Columbus-based JP Morgan Chase) are destroying neighborhoods across the state with record foreclosures. 

More than 280,000 homes are expected to go into foreclosure in Ohio by the end of next year, putting even more families out on the streets and depleting the tax base further. JP Morgan Chase had rejected 354,822 families from the Obama Administration’s Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) almost as many as Bank of America and Wells Fargo combined.
