U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady (R-Texas) issued the following statement on the passage of tax relief for all Americans:
"For too long a gun has been pointed at taxpayers' heads. Letting that nearly $4 trillion tax gun go off would have hurt our families, small businesses, seniors and America's economy.
In this economy, it is critical to extend all tax cuts for all Americans now. While well meaning, as a conservative I'm skeptical of the sales pitch that we should have just let that gun go off in hopes we would get a better deal later. As a matter of principle, I will not raise taxes on anyone for any length of time, period.
I opposed the spending that wasn't paid for and fought for a House vote on my amendment to cut $153 billion in federal spending from the bill. House Democrats denied a vote on that amendment, but I'm going to keep fighting for spending cuts in the new Republican majority next month."
