Hi All, soon after Congressmen Ted Strickland and Sherrod Brown, the Democratic candidates for Governor and U.S. Senator, respectively, cast their votes against the $70 billion tax cut bill in the U.S. Congress, Bob Bennett, chairman of the Ohio Republican Party, issued a blistering press release blasting Strickland and Brown for being "out of touch" with Ohio voters who need tax relief.

Oops. Looks like he should have made sure all his own people were on the reservation first, because also voting against the tax cut bill was U.S. Sen. George V. Voinovich, R-OH, who gave a blistering commentary about the U.S. budget situation under President Bush, and the Republicans' failure to level with the American people about what will be needed to restore our government to fiscal sanity. An overview of the speech he gave is contained in this editorial.

Sorry, Bob, looks like you were too quick on the trigger finger this time!
