The business section article on UGN choosing Ohio over Indiana sheds light on what businesses think of Indiana's business climate as opposed to what our state leadership is telling us.

Drink the Kool-Aid and believe everything we tell you. Right to work is working. Businesses need lower taxes.

The facts are the facts. Ohio, four times more job creation. Illinois, Michigan and Kentucky, three times more. What our governor and Legislature are doing is not working. It's time for a change!

Indiana is hostile toward workers, and business sees it. Our school systems, cities and towns are on the brink of bankruptcy. Unemployed workers can't even depend on unemployment insurance benefits being there. Our highways and bridges are crumbling, no more school lunches for poor children and astronomical number of uninsured.

Where do we go from here? How about a constitutional ban on gay marriage? Get real!
