Fighting for Tax Fairness

After failing to deliver on their plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act and strip health care away from millions of Americans, Republicans in Washington moved onto their next priority: giving massive tax breaks to millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations, at the expense of the middle class. And just like the fight for our health care, Ohioans once again rallied together to call on their representatives to oppose the Republican tax plan.

Through phone calls, letters, rallies, and other actions, Ohioans made clear that we want a fair tax code that invests in middle-class families and our communities. Unfortunately, Republicans threw their support behind a plan that dramatically increases the federal deficit and raises taxes on millions of working- and middle-class families. For Ohio’s Future will continue to hold our representatives accountable for their votes on the Republican tax plan and continues to work with Ohioans to protect programs that are threatened by the bill, including Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and public education.

Here are some highlights of the work For Ohio’s Future has done in the fight for tax fairness:

Elevated voices and supported rallies throughout the state urging lawmakers to reject tax breaks for millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations at the expense of middle-class Ohioans.
