U.S. Rep. Ron Kind (D-WI) today supported the American Taxpayer Relief Act providing tax relief to working families across America.
"I'm pleased that despite what it's taken to get to this point, we've come together on a bipartisan bill that works for middle class families across America. Compromise isn't about one party getting its way; it's about doing the job we were elected to do and coming together for the good of the country. The bill isn't perfect, but it continues income tax relief to 98 percent of Americans and small businesses while avoiding unnecessary damage to our economic recovery. It is a big step in the right direction.
"There is still a lot to do, including a comprehensive agreement to get our fiscal house in order and our deficits under control. I still believe we must go big and find real savings in defense, health care, and tax reform to get ourselves on a sustainable fiscal path. As we enter the 113th Congress this week, it's time to roll our sleeves up and really get to work."
