Cross-posted from the archived Media Trackers Ohio site. Ohio Governor John Kasich wildly mischaracterized Common Core as “written by local school districts” and lied about how his Obamacare Medicaid expansion will be paid for during a May 5 appearance on The Mike Trivisonno Show on WTAM 1100 in Cleveland.
