Does Richard Cordray Want To Reverse Pay Raises and Bonuses For Ohio Workers?

Democrat gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray has left voters in the dark.

The RGA writes:

Instead of giving Ohioans a direct answer on whether he supports Congressional Democrats’ proposals to raise taxes, Democrat gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray has left voters in the dark. So far, Bill O’Neill is the only Democrat gubernatorial candidate in Ohio who has revealed his stance on the tax hike plan, while Richard Cordray has refused to admit where he stands.

With Ohio workers already experiencing the positive impact of recent GOP tax reform, they deserve to know if Cordray will support efforts to reverse that impact. As a direct result of the tax reform, Cincinnati’s Fifth Third Bancorp declaredthey would increase its hourly minimum wages for employees to $15 while distributing $1000 in bonuses to 13,500 workers. The Ohio-based J.M. Smucker Co. announced it would give $1000 bonuses to thousands of employees while making $20 million in investments toward employee pension plans. Fairlawn’s First Communications also gave $1000 bonuses to employees while claiming that tax reform would allow them “to better compete against much larger companies.”

As workers and businesses around Ohio feel the positive results of tax reform, Congressional Democrats have announced their plans to reverse the pay raises and bonuses if they take power this November. Voters deserve to know if the Democrats running to lead their state will protect them from Washington D.C. Democrats trying to raise their taxes. Cordray should stop hiding and answer the simple question: Does he support his party’s plans to raise taxes on Ohioans?

Forbes: Democrats Release Tax Hike Plan

This week, Congressional Democrats released a detailed tax hike plan that they promised to implement if given majority control of the House and Senate after the 2018 midterm elections. So much for the crocodile tears about the deficit--Democrats want to raise taxes not to reduce the debt, but rather to spend that tax hike money on boondoggle projects.

As you might expect, hold onto your wallets.
