Washington, DC — U.S. Senator Benjamin L. Cardin (D-MD)
, a member of the Senate Budget Committee, released the following statement after the Senate was blocked from considering provisions that would extend tax cuts for middle class Americans.
“During these difficult economic times, as our nation is still recovering from the worst recession in generations, it is extremely important that we extend tax relief to middle-income families. At this critical time, I will do all that I can to ensure that the heart of America – our Middle Class – does not see a tax increase.”
