Now, Richard Corday is back with policy proposals that will inflate our state budget by $4 billion next year if he is elected. Ohio's legislative leaders held a press conference in October to question how Cordray would pay for his campaign promises which they say will total $16 billion in his first term. He told the Columbus Dispatch he will "harvest additional taxes" and drain the state reserves to pay for it all. This is not a strategy - it’s a dead end.
Legislative leaders and budget experts calculate that Cordray's spending proposals would cost Ohioans a 46% tax increase.
As a member of the Ohio House of Representatives, Richard Cordray supported more than a hundred tax increases on Ohioans.
Ohio’s economy has come a long way in the last eight years. We can’t afford to go back to the tax and spend policies of the Strickland - Cordray era.
