What is the difference between Ohio and Texas? According to the Tax Foundation, Ohio's state and local tax burden has risen from 8.2% in 1970 when the state ranked 47th among the states in tax burden to 12.4% in 2007 when it ranked as the 5th highest taxed state in the country. Texas on the other hand ranked 49th in 1970 and 46th in 2007 with a level of 9.3% in state and local tax burden.
Workers looking for reasons for Ohios anemic job market need look no further than the State House where our legislators have been perpetuating the high tax, high regulation policies that have made the state a very bad place to do business.

We need another Jim Rhodes whose motto was, “Profit is not a dirty word in Ohio.” A different era.
That’s Cleveland’s problem. Those businesses that want to make a profit are not welcome.
