Gov. John Kasich says Ohio should be doing everything it can to defend the part of the Affordable Care Act that requires health-care coverage for people with pre-existing conditions. This once again positions Kasich against President Donald Trump, who has said his administration will not fight for the law.

Kasich is strongly opposed to a lawsuit filed by 20 states fighting the part of Obamacare that makes sure no one is denied health care because of pre-existing conditions.

“Remember, you can’t win unless you win the State of Ohio, right? (applause)…you can’t…(applause)."

And he described how his $1.5 trillion infrastructure initiative would help them -- Ohio and workers nationwide. That seemed to be what many in the audience wanted to hear.
