Waterloo, IA – Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) today released the following statement after news reports indicated that House Republicans were on the verge of agreeing to vote on a bipartisan compromise to extend the middle class payroll tax cut for two months:
“Finally, some common sense seems to be breaking through the partisan games dominating Washington. Extending the middle class tax cut is vital to our economic recovery and creating jobs. Today’s developments hopefully mean that middle class families can breathe easier knowing their taxes won’t go up by $1,000 on January 1st.
“This isn’t a Democratic issue or a Republican issue – it’s just good for Iowa. That’s why I broke with my party last week to support the Republican plan to extend the tax cut. It’s why I supported the bipartisan Senate plan to extend the tax cut earlier this week.
“The sooner the House can vote on a middle class tax cut extension, the better. I’m ready and able to come to Washington to vote for the middle class tax cut extension again. I’m glad my third vote for this tax cut will be the charm.”
