Tuesday at the (USHCC), Republican presidential candidate Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) said he will buy a Bible for those who criticize him for expanded through .
Kasich said, “Part of the difficulty we have in this town is we don’t have leaders in this town that are willing to lead instead of reacting to who yells the loudest … Look at Medicaid expansion—I mean you know how many people are yelling at me? I’ve gone to events where people yell at me. You know what—you know what I tell them? I mean God bless them … You know there is a book that has a new part and an old part put together. It’s a remarkable book. If you don’t have one, I’ll buy you one. It talks about how we treat the poor.”
He continued, “I mean, sometimes you just have to lead. It’s like fighting ISIS. Are the American people ready to put boots on the ground in the Middle East? If we don’t stop ISIS, this becomes at some point a direct threat to the Untied States. It doesn’t mean you don’t listen, but you cannot let the yelling and screaming determine your decision making.”
