Congressman Boehner Highlights Bipartisan Support for Stopping Tax Hikes on Small Business Job Creators

June 7, 2012

At a press conference with Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House GOP leaders today, Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) highlighted the growing, bipartisan support for stopping the looming tax hike on small business job creators scheduled to take effect on January 1st. Following are Congressman Boehner’s remarks:

“You know, last week’s jobs report was certainly bad news for the American people. And once again it shows that the president’s economic policies have failed. As a result, it’s really important that we provide some certainty to job creators in our country and extending all of the current tax rates for at least a year is really important if we’re going to help job creators gain a little more confidence and put Americans back to work. Even Bill Clinton came out for it – before he was against it. And then, you know, Larry Summers, the president’s former economic advisor, this morning came out in favor of this.

“We believe it’s time to extend all of the current tax rates because it really will provide certainty for American job creators.”
