This week, the “Job Creators Network” was scheduled to bring its multi-million-dollar corporate-funded bus tour to Ohio, with planned stops in Lancaster and Cincinnati as part of the special interest group’s nationwide tour attempting to sell the Republican tax law to voters. However, the group abruptly pulled both Ohio events, providing more evidence that Republicans are running scared from their failed tax scam law as the 2018 midterm elections draw nearer.
Republicans promised that their tax plan would deliver much-needed relief to middle-class families. But more than eight months after Republicans in Washington passed the GOP tax bill, ordinary Americans still aren’t feeling a boost. In fact, very few Ohio workers have been promised one-time bonuses or wage increases due to the Republican tax scam.
“The Republican tax scam is the worst example of Washington politicians only looking out for themselves and their donors,” said For Our Future Ohio spokesperson Daniel van Hoogstraten. “Ohioans see straight through the Republicans’ tax gimmick, and now Republicans are running scared from their failed tax law.”
While the rich get even richer off of the tax scam, working families are left to pick up the tab: To pay for the tax scam’s $1.9 trillion price tag, Republicans in Washington are proposing steep cuts to health care, including trillions of dollars in cuts from Medicare, Medicaid, and the Affordable Care Act.
