State-to-state migration was a net drain of $1.2 billion on Ohio’s economy in 2011 and $1.1 billion in 2012. Almost 24,000 fewer IRS returns were filed in Ohio in 2013 than in 2011 as a result of Ohioans moving to other states.
Ohio’s net population and income losses resulting from state-to-state migration were both the nation’s seventh-worst in 2012. Read more on this subject from Jason Hart /Watchdog.org
For years, Ohio’s ability to outperform Michigan’s long-term job growth has been a silver lining around a cloudy Ohio economic recovery. No longer. Since December, Ohio has gained only 9,500 private-sector jobs while Michigan has gained 66,900. Ohio’s private-sector job growth rate is 0.2 percent, Indiana’s is 1.5 percent, and Michigan’s is 1.8 percent. Michigan and Indiana are both on track to create more jobs than Ohio does this year, despite having far fewer residents. More from Jason Hart / Watchdog.org
A group that once sued Ohio now lauds the state for cleaning up its voter rolls, though one county may still have issues.
True The Vote, a nonpartisan voters’ right and election integrity group, sued Ohio in 2012, saying people registered to vote in several counties exceeded the population. A settlement was reached in January 2014. Continue reading by Maggie Thurber | For Ohio Watchdog
For every Ohioan who has paid an Obamacare exchange premium, three have been added to Medicaid under Gov. John Kasich’s Obamacare expansion.

Letter explains that no law requires letting members of the opposite sex into public school restrooms
Tuesday, August 25, 2015
Attorney sound bite: Matt Sharp
– Alliance Defending Freedom sent a letter
to the Hillsboro R-3 School District Board of Education Monday that asks it to reverse a recent decision by district staff to allow students to use locker rooms and restrooms of the opposite sex. The letter provides a suggested policy
that addresses the school district’s concerns about discrimination without allowing the sharing of restrooms.
The ADF letter explains that no law requires public schools to allow boys into girls’ restrooms or girls into boys’ restrooms. In fact, the district could be exposing itself to legal liability for violating students’ right to bodily privacy. Read more…
Progress Ohio has accused Ohio’s leading Republicans and others of continuing their assault on Planned Parenthood with lies and widely discredited videos, selectively spliced to make it appear as if the health care provider illegally profits from the sale of fetal tissue. This post will try to supply unedited versions of the videos and let you decide for yourself. From 7/14 , 7/21 , 7/28 , and 8/6 .
After watching these disturbing videos we need to ask who is selling lies – Progress Ohio or Center for Medical Progress? Also, should Planned Parenthood, whose main mission seems to be to kill babies, be called a health care provider? Last question, with Obamacare requiring insurance to pay 100% of women’s health screenings (and everyone is required to have insurance), why is it necessary to fund this entity?
Daniel Snyder, owner of the NFL Redskins, has announced that the team is dropping the word “Washington” from the team name and it will henceforth be simply known as “The Redskins”.
It was reported that he finds the word ‘Washington’ imparts a negative image of poor leadership, mismanagement, corruption, cheating, and lying, and is not a fitting role model for young fans of football.
Surprisingly, The American Cancer Society, March of Dimes, and Susan G. Komen all donate money directly to Planned Parenthood. Fannie Mae is also a direct contributor to Planned Parenthood. Melissa Quinn of The Daily Signal compiled a list of 41 companies that donate directly to Planned Parenthood. Along the same general subject, Kelsey Harkness of The Daily Signal reported on pro-life leaders who say Planned Parenthood openly targets the Black community.

In the wake of a San Francisco shooting that garnered national attention, the immigration debate has centered on sanctuary cities.
Sanctuary policies differ from city to city, but generally the policies instruct city employees and law enforcement to not ask the immigration status of criminal suspects.
According to the Center for Immigration Studies, more than 200 cities and counties in the United States have policies that make them immigration sanctuaries.
