The GOP tax plan and you

Policy Matters has chronicled the many ways the federal GOP tax and budget plans would harm Ohio. Huge windfalls for some of the wealthiest will be paid for by cuts to programs like food aid, Medicaid, and more. Most Ohioans come out behind. You can find all our GOP tax plan research, analysis, press statements and op-eds here. 

The maps and accompanying fact sheets highlight the number of people in each Ohio congressional district or county who are helped by federal programs like food aid, Medicaid, federally subsidized student loans and Pell Grants and more.
