Republicans Remain in State of Denial


Location: Washington, DC

Ways and Means Committee Ranking Member Sander Levin (D-MI) today made the following statement:

"Speaker Boehner's letter to the President today distorts the work of the Bowles-Simpson Commission, which assumed the expiration of the high-end Bush tax cuts and the continuation of the middle class tax cuts. Within that framework, House Republicans should join with Democrats in passing the Senate bill this week. Republicans remain in a state of denial. The recent election was not a status quo election but rather a validation of the President's often-stated position on taxes. We must remain optimistic that Republicans will accept reality and not push our nation over the cliff."
