CINCINNATI — On Wednesday, February 7, just days after President Donald Trump’s visit to Ohio, For Ohio’s Future Action Fund and Tax March will host a press conference outside of the recently closed Sam’s Club in Oakley to demonstrate how the Republican tax plan is hurting Ohio communities and workers.

The press conference, part of the “Repeal the Trump Tax” tour, will illustrate how the Republican tax plan gives massive tax breaks to millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations, while ordinary workers pay the price though higher taxes, higher health care costs, job cuts, and budget cuts to programs working families rely on.

Despite repeated promises from Republicans that their tax plan will boost the paychecks of middle-class families, emerging reports show the true impact of the Republican tax scam: layoffs, companies spending their tax savings to reward their investors through stock buybacks and dividends, and very few companies using corporate tax windfalls to boost workers’ wages. In Cincinnati, two Sam’s Club locations abruptly closed in January with no notice to the public or workers.

WHAT: “Repeal the Trump Tax” press conference

WHO: Community members, workers, and local leaders, including:

Anne Zimmerman, CPA, founder and owner of Zimmerman & Co CPAs Inc.
Cincinnati council member Tamaya Dennard
Representative from United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW)
Representative from the Contact Center

WHEN: Wednesday, February 7 at 11 a.m.

WHERE: Outside the shuttered Sam’s Club, 4825 Marburg Ave., Cincinnati

Wednesday’s press conference is part of the Not One Penny 100-day national tour ​traveling​ ​across​ ​the​ ​country​ ​to​ ​hold​ ​Republican members​ ​of​ ​Congress​ ​accountable​ ​for​ their vote on the tax plan.​ Every Ohio Republican in Congress voted in favor of tax cuts to the wealthy at the expense of middle-class families.
