Linda McMahon released the following statement on President Obama's proposal to extend current tax rates for the middle class:
"President Obama and I agree that Congress must extend the current tax rates for the middle class. Last week's jobs numbers reminded us that no matter what career politicians may say, our economy is still sluggish and middle-class families are hurting. We should not be raising taxes on anyone right now. This is why I made a middle-class tax cut the centerpiece of my jobs plan. I am the only candidate with a plan to cut taxes for the middle class, while Congressman Murphy has a long record of raising taxes on the middle class. Working families are doing their best to make ends meet, and the best thing Washington can do to help them out is to let them keep more of their hard-earned money."
