Stop Congressional Tax Cuts for the Wealthy that Hurt Ohio

This petition had 301 supporters

Congressional leaders are moving quickly on a tax cut proposal that will cost our communities more than a trillion dollars to pay for a tax cut for the wealthy. This will mean less to invest in our schools, affordable college, and addressing issues like poverty and opiate addiction.

It is a tax cut for the wealthy.
Nearly half of the value of these tax cuts will flow to the wealthiest 1% of taxpayers. As we struggle with poverty, income inequality, and other serious issues in Ohio, this is not the time to cut taxes. Instead this is a time for Congressional leaders to invest in addressing the opiate epidemic, high cost of college, and aging infrastructure.

Ohio needs investments – not cuts - in vital programs and services.
To create jobs, increase wages, and solve problems like poverty, we need to invest in our communities and not cut vital services. Investments into education, broadband, roads, bridges, and healthcare increase opportunities and the quality of life for everyone compared to these tax cuts that will only benefit the wealthy.

We have tried this ‘tax cuts for prosperity strategy’ before here in Ohio and nationally, and it didn’t work. There is no reason to believe that it will work now. Research shows that investments in education, clean water and safe roads, and strong communities are the foundation needed for good jobs and strong economy.
