Taxpayers Don’t Stand a Chance is an in-depth case
study on the perennial election battleground State of Ohio, including a microanalysis of
Ohio’s political landscape. It describes how Ohio went from being an economic and
political leader to a national laggard. As shown by specific examples, Ohio’s fall
occurred because the political system puts entrenched interests ahead of taxpayers, and
politicians spend precious resources on the wrong issues or make things worse. With the
news media’s failure to give equal coverage to conservative ideas and to expose
government excesses, voters are unable to make informed decisions. The political and
journalistic failures stop key economic reforms from being implemented, make it
impossible for Ohioans to prevent higher taxes, and keep Ohio indentured to labor
unions. These failures are not just occurring in Ohio but are happening in states and
localities everywhere. In Taxpayers Don’t Stand a Chance, Matt Mayer lays out major
reforms aimed at giving taxpayers everywhere a chance to fight back and win. For more
