Last night, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano voted against H.R. 4853, the Middle Class Tax Relief Act of 2010, which passed the House of Representatives and would extend the Bush tax cuts for another two years, including the wealthiest income bracket.
"We should be assisting working families during this recession, not wealthy people who need help the least," Napolitano said. "The high-income tax cuts in this bill would borrow billions to help people who are already doing well. Millions of men and women are still struggling with lost jobs, cut services, and falling home prices, and this money should have gone to helping them instead."
On December 2, Napolitano voted in favor of an earlier version of H.R. 4853, which extended the Bush tax cuts for all Americans except the highest income bracket.
