Congressman Eric Cantor (VA-07) today issued the following statement regarding the extension of the payroll tax cut:
"In this tough economy, middle class Americans need to know that their taxes won't be going up at any point next year. We are going to stay here and do our work until we guarantee that no one faces a tax increase in the year ahead. No one -- middle class families, workers, employers, doctors -- needs more uncertainty in this tough economy, and Washington must not ignore them. The President has said it would be "inexcusable' to not extend the payroll tax cut for a year -- and we agree. The goal of the House, the Senate, and the President is a full year extension of the payroll tax cut -- so let's achieve our goals. Let's deliver for the American people this Holiday Season."
