In response to the New York Times’ reporting on Donald Trump’s taxes, Ohio Democratic Party Chair David Pepper released the following statement:
“Donald Trump promised that Ohioans’ taxes would go ‘way down’ under his presidency. But instead of lending a hand, he passed a tax scam that will hike taxes on 1.6 million hard-working Ohioans. Instead of keeping his promises to working families, he handed out massive corporate tax breaks that pushed Ohioans’ jobs overseas. And instead of paying his own fair share of taxes, he did what he always does: he refused to live up to his most basic commitments. Ohioans are tired of paying the price for Trump’s broken promises, and this November we’re replacing him with a president who keeps his word — that leader is Joe Biden.
