Today, Congressman Stephen Fincher (R-Frog Jump), voted in favor of H.R. 8, the Job Protection and Recession Prevention Act of 2012, which will prevent a tax hike on Americans. The bill is now before the U.S. Senate where, if no action is taken, every taxpayer in America will be hit with a tax increase on
January 1, 2013 when the current tax rates are set to expire.
Congressman Fincher remarked, "Now is not the time to raise taxes on anyone. Americans are struggling and cannot afford to send more of their hard-earned money to be wasted by Washington. It has become painfully clear that any new tax increases will destroy job creation. Our economy is suffering and the last thing we need is a tax increase."
Fincher continued, "I hope the Senate will understand the importance of this bill and, instead of playing political games, send this bill to the president."
