McConnell Statement on Proposed Tax Votes


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement Thursday regarding the need to prevent tax hikes on every American taxpayer:

"Votes structured for symbolic reasons in December won't prevent a tax hike in January. It's not enough to talk about the problem of the looming tax hike on families and hundreds of thousands of small businesses across the country--we have to fix it. And fixing this problem should be our priority in the limited time remaining this year--not forcing votes on the liberal wish list.

"The deadline to prevent a tax hike on every American taxpayer is January 1, and the clock is ticking. While some in Congress have a strange desire to raise taxes on hundreds of thousands of small businesses across the country, Republicans and a growing chorus of Democrats believe that no one should have the government take even more out of their paycheck next year."
