The Impending Fiscal Cliff Negotiations and the Extension of Tax Cuts for the Middle Class

Floor Speech

Mr. AL GREEN of Texas. Mr. Speaker, as Congress and the President continue to move toward a compromise addressing the ``Fiscal Cliff,'' I support a balanced approach that creates jobs and supports long-term economic growth. A key component of sustained economic growth is the extension of the current tax rates for middle class Americans. Furthermore, I support an approach that boosts the confidence of small business owners and provides them with the certitude they need to meet the demands of a recovering economy. Congress must support an approach that avoids the harmful sequestration spending cuts that may affect nearly every sector of our economy and threaten our economic recovery. It is my hope that my colleagues and I can act as partners in promoting economic fairness that will steer America toward a brighter future.
