Ohioans Vent Frustration Over #GOPTaxScam

This Valentine’s Day, Ohioans aren’t showing much love for President Donald Trump’s and congressional Republicans’ tax scam law. As
The Washington Post recently reported, many Americans are turning to Twitter to vent their frustration over the Republican tax law after seeing their tax returns shrink unexpectedly. In some instances, people are finding out that they owe the Internal Revenue Service thousands of dollars.

Ohioans filing their taxes are no exception. Months before the April 15 tax filing deadline, people in Ohio are already sharing their #GOPTaxScam stories on Twitter.

Some say the law did not bring them the wage boost that Republicans promised:
