OH-1: Steve Driehaus’ “Tax Cut”

August 27, 2010 at 10:18 am Matt Leave a comment Go to comments

Congressman Driehaus, who is in a conservative district and will likely be defeated by former Congressman Steve Chabot rolled out a new ad yesterday:

Besides the obvious fact that taxes can’t be cut for 99% of Ohioans when more than 1/2 of all adults do not pay federal income taxes, what tax cut is he talking about?

He is talking about the Obama Stimulus package!

“I supported tax cuts for 99 percent of Ohioans and tax relief for small business to help them create jobs. Steve Chabot opposed the bill,” Driehaus said in the ad, referring to last year’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Chabot’s campaign spokesperson, Jamie Schwartz, fired back, saying Driehaus “has a serious aversion to the truth. His first campaign ad is a clear sign that he is desperate.”

“I’ve never heard of him refer to the stimulus package as a tax cut bill. It’s hard to make that argument when you’re spending $800 billion taxpayer dollars,” Schwartz said.

Gee whiz, so instead of embracing the anti-stimulus zeitgeist of this election cycle, massive spending projects are now  “tax cuts.” Driehaus earns an “A” for creativity.

    Well, the reality is that the stimulus package did contain a package of the biggest tax cuts in U.S. history. Sorry that you can’t stand that. And the ad was released yesterday. And a new poll shows it a dead heat. Catch up. :)
