Republican Tax Bill

The Republican tax bill increases the deficit by $1.4 trillion, which will lead to the gutting of critical health and anti-poverty programs seniors and low- and –middle income Americans depend on:

Social Security: To pay for tax cuts for the wealthy, Republicans will seek to undermine and reduce this earned benefit 2.3 million Ohio seniors have paid into during years of hard work.

Medicare: Current law would trigger $25 billion in automatic cuts in 2018.  More than 2.1 million Ohioans would feel the immediate impact.

Medicaid:  In Ohio, 81.2% of Medicaid spending is derived from state and local taxes.  Eliminating SALT would lead to demands for cuts to Medicaid which provides long term care for seniors.

Veterans’ Benefits: Eliminates the tax incentive for employers to hire veterans.
