Tax cuts and immigration – two issues that promise to define Ohio’s U.S. Senate race -- moved to center stage this week. WKSU’s M.L. Schultze talked with the Democratic incumbent Sherrod Brown about the issues.

Ohio’s Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown sees a litany of immediate problems with the tax package Republicans have passed and President Trump plans to sign. But he says he has bigger concerns for the future. WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more.

Brown acknowledges average middle-class families in Ohio will see tax cuts next year. But he maintains those will dissipate over the next few years. And he predicts Republicans will use a ballooning deficit to go after health, education and retirement programs many Ohioans rely on.
