“If the President is serious about his commitment to economic growth and jobs in this country, he’ll sign this bill. This bill doesn’t have everything in it that either side wants, but from our perspective this represents a bill that does make some progress. It continues to change the culture of spending to one of savings.
“This bill ensures that we abide by the principle that we want people to keep more of their hard earned money. This bill includes some incremental steps towards continued efforts at economic growth with the tax provisions in it for small business with business expensing and accelerated depreciation. Again, if the President is serious about his commitment to join us and work together on the things we can agree on, then he will sign this bill.”
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA)
