Camp Statement on Tax Rates

September 13, 2010

Washington, DC – Ways and Means Ranking Member Dave Camp (R-MI) today issued the following statement regarding tax rates:

“The Democrats’ plan to raise taxes on small businesses is bad policy and would only further weaken our economy.  Leader Boehner and I agree that we must do everything possible to stop these job-killing tax hikes.  That is why Republicans have come forward with a bipartisan solution to help our economy create jobs – 1) extend current tax rates for the next two years and 2) cut spending back to 2008 levels.  This plan can and would pass if the Speaker allows a vote on it and, more importantly, it will provide the certainty employers need to start investing again and creating jobs.”
