Op-Ed: Refusing to Ratify TPP Risks America’s Role as the World Leader

In his latest op-ed, Gov. John Kasich wrote in the Washington Post about how Congress passing the Trans-Pacific Partnership will make America safer and stronger. Read the op-ed below: Does the United States still have the ability — or the will — to be the undisputed global leader, a role it has held since World War II? It’s a question to be answered soon by members of Congress as they approve or reject an initiative to give the United States expanded access to 11 countries that represent more than a quarter of the world’s trade, while leveling the playing field for U.S. workers and businesses. How they vote on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement will affect the course of the United States’ security, prosperity and global influence for the rest of the 21st century and determine whether we advance or retreat from our leadership role at a time of […]

WSJ Op-Ed (Gov. John Kasich): A Vote Against Trade Is a Vote Against Growth

Gov. John Kasich recently authored an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal about the benefits free trade offers in American job creation and national security: A Vote Against Trade Is a Vote Against Growth China and Russia want the U.S. out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Why? It will make us stronger. The current war of words over the Trans-Pacific Partnership is far more than a trade debate. It’s about whether America still has the will to tackle change head-on and emerge stronger, on the leading edge of innovation, offering a better quality of life for Americans. With 40 million American jobs dependent on trade, the U.S. economy is already interconnected with the rest of the world. So TPP is not about something “new” as much as it is about helping existing U.S. companies—large and small—find growth opportunities in Japan, Australia, Canada, Chile, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam and four other Pacific Rim […]

New York Times (John Kasich): 20 Years After Reform, Welfare Is Still Broken

In Monday’s New York Times, Gov. John Kasich authored an op-ed about the need for states to become empowered to offer welfare reforms and ensure that we’re helping those in need while also setting standards for personal responsibility. An excerpt is below, you can read the whole thing here. New York Times: 20 Years After Reform, Welfare Is Still Broken “…today, it’s clear that our welfare system is still deeply flawed, thanks in part to later changes from Washington. In 2005, Congress pulled power back from the states, reducing local flexibility by enforcing a one-size-fits-all approach that sets arbitrary time limits on education and training for people seeking sustainable employment.

Today’s system still […]
