New Ohio coaltiion wants tax hikes on the rich

COLUMBUS — A coalition of liberal groups is planning a series of public events across the state, with hopes of convincing Ohio’s Republican congressional delegation to support tax hikes on the country’s wealthiest residents.

The Ohio Action Coalition is fearful the GOP will block a deal to avoid the looming federal fiscal cliff that would involve tax increases for those who earn more than $250,000 a year.

Instead, the group wants Congress to increase tax rates on the richest 2 percent of residents while extending tax cuts instituted during former President George W. Bush’s term for everyone else.

“Our goal in the campaign is to ensure that tax fairness is a starting point for any deficit-reduction deal struck between Congress and President Obama to avoid the so-called ‘fiscal cliff,’” said Joanne Pickrell, director of the new coalition.
