Issues

Campaign themes

2012

In information submitted to Ballotpedia, Roush outlined some of the major issues of his campaign:

"Ohio will not become a "Nanny" State on my watch. We must allow Capitalism to thrive and keep State and Federal legislative regulations to an extreme minimum. We need to allow the Private sector to do what they do best, CREATE JOBS! We need to give Businesses incentives to locate to Ohio by reducing Corporate tax rates. Ohio's budget is currently in bad shape and needs corrected immediately. Entitlement programs in Ohio are plagued with Fraud. I would propose much stricter penalties for Fraudulent activities involving tax payer money."[1]
