He Doesn’t Understand It…

He supported it…
Zack Space stood with President Obama’s $787 billion bailout of Wall Street, giving millions in bonuses to Wall Street CEO’s.2
While in congress, Zack Space voted for the Cap & Trade law which would have cost Ohio over 100 thousand jobs and increased the cost of electricity for residents.3
He took it…

He failed Ohio…
