Rep. Duffy Calls on House To Pass Two-Month Payroll Tax Extension Immediately
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
--Duffy Agrees With Senator Mitch McConnell; Says House Should Take Up Senate Version Of Payroll Tax Holiday--
Washington, D.C., U.S. Representative Sean Duffy (R-07) issued the following statement today on extending the payroll tax holiday:
“I’ve said all along I’d be willing to support a two-month payroll tax cut extension if that was our only option. The Senate's refusal to work with the House to hammer out the differences in our bills before Christmas has left us with few other options. Of course, I still believe middle class families would be better served by the certainty of a one-year payroll tax holiday, but this isn’t about proving a point. This is about preventing hardworking Wisconsin families from paying an extra $40 a week for the dysfunction in Washington DC.
“That’s why today I’m calling on GOP Leadership to immediately bring up the Senate’s two-month extension for an up or down vote. Middle class families deserve a Congress that will rise above the squabbling and ensure their taxes don’t go up right after Christmas.”
