U.S. Representative Tom Marino (R-PA) released the following statement in response to House passage of H.R. 8, the American Taxpayer Relief Act:
"Today I voted to keep tax rates low for hard-working, middle class families and family-owned small businesses. I am encouraged that both the House and Senate were able to come to an agreement and overcome the lack of leadership displayed by President Obama throughout this painful process. It is now time to turn our full attention to cutting spending and balancing the budget."
