Today, U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) released the following statement after voting against H.R. 8, the American Taxpayer Relief Act.
"I voted against a bad bill that raises taxes on families and small businesses. I never have, and never will, support legislation that digs deeper into the pockets of hard-working taxpayers of the 3rd district to foot the bill for Washington's spending. The President must work with Congress to address the real problem hurting our economy -- spending. Americans want, need and deserve better protection of their taxpayer dollars."
