Tonight, Representative Xavier Becerra (CA-31), Chairman-elect of the House Democratic Caucus, released the following statement in response to House Republicans retreating from their own millionaire tax break proposal:
"Once again, the American people are left watching in astonishment as House Republicans take our country to the edge. It's time to make the tough choices. Republicans must return to the negotiating table and work with President Obama to find a bipartisan solution that protects the middle class and our economy. Our country deserves nothing less."
