Last week, I traveled to schools around the state to hear from students, nurses, parents, and health professionals about what severe allergic reactions can mean when they occur unexpectedly in a classroom, playground, or sports field. These severe allergic reactions – known as anaphylaxis – can occur within minutes of exposure to any allergen. The most common allergens that cause anaphylactic shock are food, insect stings, and medications.

“Common sense is not so common.”

- Voltaire from “A Pocket Philosophical Dictionary”

 

Every day the U.S. federal government and its agencies appear to do their best to prove Voltaire correct.

Right now the safety of the vast majority of small communities around the country is under attack. As the Affordable Care Act - Obamacare - limps and stumbles its way toward full implementation after three years, Americans continue to discover new items within the legislation that will affect them adversely.

In Ohio, one out of every seven jobs is connected to growing, processing, or distributing the food we eat and the products we use every day. In fact, agriculture and food contribute more than $107 billion to our state’s economy each year. That’s why, when I talk to farmers around the state, I hear how important the farm bill is and how the lack of a farm bill has led to uncertainty that makes it tougher for farmers to do their jobs. In fact, the lack of a farm bill has even affected farmer’s planting decisions. That is not good for Ohio farmers and it is not good for Ohioans.

Part of my job is to fight for American workers who are encountering unfair and illegal trade barriers in other countries. Even though those fights can sometimes go on for years, when we can create a level playing field for Ohioans and Ohio companies, everyone wins.

Ohio is home to countless innovative businesses, ranging from high tech job creators to advanced manufacturers and service providers. Since we compete in a global economy, many jobs at these Ohio companies depend on exporting products to customers around the world. In fact, over one quarter of Ohio manufacturing jobs are dependent on export sales.

 
The Gettysburg Address, remembered PDF Print

There are two paintings beside the desk in my office. One is of George Washington, the man who helped establish the Union. The other is of Abraham Lincoln, the man who saved it.

One hundred and fifty years ago — or seven score and 10 years, as he might have put it—Abraham Lincoln stood on a wind-swept battlefield at a tiny railroad crossing in southern Pennsylvania. He was not the featured speaker that day. That honor fell to Edward Everett. Everett’s speech would last two hours; his first sentence was more than seventy words long.
