Murphy Responds to President's Tax Plan

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Tim Murphy (PA-18) today released the following statement in response to President Obama's call to increase taxes on American families and job-creators by allowing the 2001/03 tax rates to expire.

"With 23 million Americans looking for a job, allowing a tax increase to take effect on January 1st would be catastrophic, so I don't disagree with taking action now to stop the pending tax hike on middle class families struggling to make ends meet in this jobless economy. In fact, I urge the President to go even further and join Congress in eliminating all pending tax hikes set to burden middle-class Americans, including the twenty-one new taxes included in his healthcare law."
