Today, Congressman Tim Walz released the following statement after the President called for immediate action to extend tax cuts for middle class Americans:
"Extending tax cuts for hardworking middle class Americans is something we can all agree on and Congress should act immediately to do so. Middle class families simply can't afford a $2,200 a year tax hike or the uncertainty that goes with waiting until after November for Congress to act. I commend the President for calling on Congress to act in a fiscally responsible manner and take immediate action to extend tax cuts for those making less than $250,000, or 98% of Americans, while allowing the wealthiest 2% to pay their fair share. In doing so we will continue to promote a strong middle class while working to reduce our national debt."
