House Economic Leader calls plan an encouraging sign that "the compass is pointing back in the right direction"
Washington, DC — U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady (R-Texas), issued the following statement on the deal to extend tax relief to all Americans.
"Defusing the $4 trillion New Years Day tax bomb while stopping the death tax from destroying family farms and small businesses is a solid win for job creators. I support this agreement as long as no additional spending or other bills are tacked on to it.
There is a bigger change at work here, as well. The recent pay freeze on federal workers, a ban on earmarks and now the extension of tax cuts for all Americans should encourage citizens that after two years they are starting to be heard. The compass is pointing back the right direction and it’s due to voters in November who demanded change and a Republican Congress that is sticking to their ‘no tax increase’ guns. Even though getting America back on the right track won’t happen overnight, these are encouraging signs."
Congressman Brady is the top House Republican on the Joint Economic Committee and a senior member of the House Ways & Means Committee.
