Background

 

Rep. Steve Chabot has been a champion of fiscal and anti-inflationary policies that promote growth and opportunity. He has consistently supported tax cuts for individuals, families, and businesses, including support for the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and death tax repeal, which would end the tax costs associated with passing businesses and farms to the next generation. Rep. Chabot has been a steady advocate for reducing unnecessary and wasteful government spending, including his 2021 vote against the budget-busting Build Back Better spending plan.

 

Rep. Chabot puts the taxpayers’ interest over the special interests. He has been an outspoke advocate for eliminating the Export-Import Bank, one of the nation’s largest corporate welfare programs and a source of corruption and cronyism. The Ex-Im Bank pits U.S. businesses against each other and doles out taxpayer dollars to some of the world’s largest companies.

 

Rep. Chabot supported criminal justice reforms that provide second chances for deserving individuals. In 2018, Rep. Chabot support the bipartisan First Step Act that reformed the federal criminal justice system by improving sentencing rules, addressing poor prison conditions, helping more people earn second chances, and enhancing transparency and accountability in the justice system. Rep. Chabot voted for the EQUAL Act that would end the sentencing disparity.
