Investing in Ohio

investing in ohio videoOne Ohio Now recently released this animated video, which makes the case for the public investments the state could otherwise make if it were not cutting taxes for wealthy residents. This video gets so much right. First, it quickly tells viewers what’s at stake in the current debate: “Investments that benefit everyone can’t be made.” Thoughtfully, the video goes on to cite specific examples that are widely recognized, such as increasing college tuition, foregoing the chance to help families on the brink of homelessness, and repairing aging bridges. Lastly, it’s forward-thinking when it concludes, “It’s time to start seriously investing in Ohio’s future.” Research has shown that expanding the time horizon, particularly in budget battles, is essential to move people past the immediate sense that there’s not enough money to go around.
