Mike DeWine is Too Weak to Stand Up for Working Ohioans
July 1, 2021
Columbus, OH — Mike DeWine signed the budget passed by the GOP-led legislature that included a number of harmful provisions inserted by Republican politicians. DeWine had the opportunity to line-item veto a number of these extreme provisions — including a major tax break for the wealthy and well-connected, language that hurts local schools and attacks on women’s access to healthcare — but caved to GOP politicians instead.
“Leadership is about doing the right thing for the people you serve, regardless of politics or outside pressure. Mike DeWine sold out working Ohioans to placate extreme members of his own party and statehouse special interests,” said Matt Keyes, spokesperson for the Ohio Democratic Party.
