This week, 17 is the most important number we need to know. To defeat Senate Bill 5, it will take 17 votes, which means all ten Democrats and seven Republicans.
Now, that may seem like a tall order – and it is – but this bill is so extreme and would do so much damage to the middle class that Senate Republicans are afraid, and they’re defecting one by one.
So much is on the line for Ohio’s middle class families this week. Will you give just $17 to our efforts to get to the 17 votes we need to defeat Senate Bill 5?
Today, the Senate Insurance, Commerce and Labor Committee is again considering the bill. Senate President Tom Niehaus said that a full floor vote could take place this week. That means we need step up our efforts like never before.
Your letters, your phone calls and your dollars have made such a big difference so far. Momentum is on our side, and if we all continue to work together, we CAN defeat this bill.
Please keep the momentum going by giving just $17 to our efforts to save Ohio’s middle class.
Just like in Wisconsin, Indiana and across the country, your Democratic leaders in Ohio will not back down.
