Ohio To Become “Publicopoly” if Kasich and Co Have Their Way

Governor Kasich and his corporatization cohorts in the State House and Senate are currently engaged in “Publicopoly” -- a term coined by the pro-corpoate think tank, American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).

Plans to corporatize turnpikes, prisons, education, alcohol sales and the lottery in the state budget are right from the ALEC playbook.


Click on any “Game Square.” There’s several choices: Government Operations, Education, Transportation & Infrastructure, Public Safety, Environment, Health, and Telecommunications. What public service/asset not yet proposed for sale, rent, or lease will probably soon be...unless we resist.

  1. We will resist! It just seems like neoliberalism is getting increasingly more blatant. I hope that means that people will recognize the patterns and stop falling for the PR and spin. Cutting taxes, cutting social spending, eliminating regulations, and privatizing public services is all part of the neoliberal play book. We will learn that it's a game of upward wealth transfer and we will stop playing.
