WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) today issued the following statement on the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act:
“Creating jobs, helping small business people and ensuring that taxes aren’t raised on middle class Americans are top priorities for House Republicans. The Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act will help Americans still struggling after the failure of President Obama’s economic policies. Our proposal helps businesses and job creators by extending pro-growth tax relief and includes bipartisan measures to create private-sector jobs, which will help get Americans back to work. The reforms added by Chairman Dave Camp modernize the unemployment system and boost job creation across this country.
"While this legislation doesn’t have everything that either Republicans or Democrats want, it makes incremental progress and demonstrates that we can work together to deliver results. If the President is serious about his commitment to get the economy going and help small businesses create jobs in this country, he’ll work with us and sign this bill.”
