Rep. Chabot and Trump: A Perfect Match

Feb 14, 2020

From Massive Tax Breaks for the Rich to Sabotaging Health Care, Chabot Hand-in-Hand with Trump


Finding your perfect match is hard. But this Valentine’s Day, President Donald Trump has found a reliable companion in Ohio Representative Steve Chabot. After all, Rep. Chabot votes in line with Trump
more than 95% of the time.

“Whether it’s voting to take away health care from millions of Americans or doling out massive tax breaks for the wealthy and well-connected, Congressman Chabot is Trump’s perfect match,” said For Our Future Ohio State Director Antonia Webb. “Steve Chabot is so bewitched by Trump that he would rather turn his back on his own constituents than stand up to the president’s harmful agenda.”

Just how perfect of a match are Rep. Chabot and President Trump? For starters, both:

  • Tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act, jeopardizing health care coverage for millions of Americans including people with pre-existing conditions
  • Doled out massive tax breaks for the wealthy and big corporations; 
  • Stripped away environmental protections, including undoing efforts to safeguard our drinking water;
  • Opposed an effort to rein in the cost of prescription drugs; 
  • Opposed creating a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who come to the U.S. as children, commonly known as Dreamers; 
  • Opposed disaster relief money for Puerto Rico; 
  • Refused to condemn Trump’s racist comments directed at members of Congress; 
  • Rejected an attempt to protect health care and social service workers from workplace violence.

Truly, it’s a perfect match.
