Ohio CWAers Put Pressure on Rep. Chabot for GOP Corporate Tax Cut Bill Vote


Members of CWA Local 4400 in Ohio's 1st Congressional District were out in full force in August knocking on 4,000 doors to talk to voters about the Republican corporate tax cut bill and to urge voters not to vote for Rep. Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) in November.

CWA members are putting pressure on elected officials who sold out working families by voting for the Republican corporate tax cut bill that gave huge tax breaks to the super-rich and big corporations like AT&T.

Members of CWA Local 4400 in Ohio's 1st Congressional District were out in full force in August knocking on 4,000 doors to talk to voters about the Republican corporate tax cut bill. Canvassers gathered pledges not to vote for the incumbent Rep. Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) who supported the bill.

To get the tax cut bill passed, corporations like AT&T made big promises to create new jobs and raise wages. Instead, they've funneled those tax bill profits into massive stock buybacks that only enrich wealthy executives while their workers' wages remain stagnant. CWA members are making sure voters remember that Rep. Chabot voted for the enormous giveaway to Wall Street paid for by working families.
