A new poll conducted by the New York Times and SurveyMonkey shows that tax reform now has more supporters than opponents, buoying Republican hopes for this year’s congressional elections. We also learned today that small-business confidence has hit a record high in 2018 after the tax-reform win.
In Ohio, workers are seeing more money in their paychecks and just last week, four more Ohio companies announced tax reform wins:
- J.M. Smucker Co. is pouring sugar on thousands of employees in the form of $1,000 bonuses.
- R+L Carriers announced it would issue bonuses of up to $1,000 for all its employees.
- Cintas Corporation announced bonuses for 38,000 employees.
- Huntington Bank cites tax reform for spike in small business loans.
As Ohioans benefit from tax reform, Sherrod Brown and Ohio Democrats continue to oppose it. Instead of celebrating this news, they stand with Nancy Pelosi and nod in agreement when she calls $1,000 bonuses "crumbs."
Sherrod Brown and the Democrats will regret their opposition to tax reform when Ohio voters go to the polls in November.
