Routine Tax Extenders Package Contains New Irresponsible Spending and Tax Hikes
Congress cannot kick its spending habit. This time it is using the extension of long-overdue tax-reducing provisions to increase spending $174 billion and add $134 billion to the deficit. Even worse, Congress has crammed a job-destroying tax hike and other detrimental policies into an otherwise necessary bill. Congress should stop the spending madness and permanently extend sound tax policies.
