In The Region:

Gov. John Kasich underscored change and jobs throughout his first State of the State speech today. 

He previewed some of the specifics that will be in the budget that he'll present to the Ohio Legislature next week, including school choice, prison sentencing reform and delivery of health care.

He got repeated and warm applause from the  Republican-dominated Senate and House, and a more reserved response from minority Democrats. He also got more heckling from the gallery, where a few union members protested his move to strip public employees of most collective bargaining rights.

Below is video of both the Governor's speech and Democratic response.

Listener Comments:

Wow! Did these people even read Gov. Kasich's speech? Obviously they didn't listen.
Any sensible self-thinking individual must have found the Minority response as laughable as a "Michael Moore Documentary". It causes one to ponder; Do these people really have an audience anymore? Can anyone really watch the Governor's speech, then their response and not Laugh? And how much were they paid to keep this inciting rhetoric in their public speeches? Their participants literally grow dumber with each display for having sat thru them. Thank God these Idiots are out of the cockpit. And God Bless Ohioans for throwing so many of them out last election... See, your vote does count!
