House Democrats Call For End To ‘Tax Shifting' In Upcoming Budget

Days before Gov. John Kasich unveils his executive budget, Democrats on the House Finance & Appropriations Committee criticized his previous tax policies, saying Republicans have increasingly transferred the burden of taxation onto poorer Ohioans.

Gov. Kasich has indicated that his next two-year spending plan will continue making progress toward his long-term goal of shrinking the personal income tax. While Republicans believe the transition to consumption-based taxation will ultimately improve the state's economy, Democrats say it is increasingly costing lower- and middle-class Ohioans more of their pay.
