We can’t let Congress raise taxes on the middle class.

We all know that America’s economy is still on the slow path to recovery. So, tax hikes on the middle class couldn’t come at a worse time. If it seems obvious, that’s because it is – both Democrats and Republicans support extending these cuts. Unfortunately, the Republican leadership is holding these cuts hostage as they refuse to negotiate in good faith with President Barack Obama and Senate Democrats on the fiscal cliff.

There is no excuse for Congress to play games with our economy to try and score a partisan political win. Rep. Denny Rehberg should support a simple extension of middle class tax cuts right away.
