Congressman Eric Cantor Reaffirms His Opposition to ANY Tax Increases

Richmond, VA – Congressman Eric Cantor today released the following statement addressing his opposition to the Obama-Pelosi tax increases that are scheduled to take effect on January 1:

“I will do everything in my power to stop President Obama and Speaker Pelosi from raising taxes on working families, small business people, and investors. Raising taxes in this environment is a non-starter for me and millions of American small business people who are struggling to keep the lights on and meet their payroll obligations.

"Despite the clear efforts by President Obama and Speaker Pelosi to increase taxes on hard working Americans, there is ample evidence that a bipartisan majority of the House would support a clean bill to ensure that no American faces a tax increase in this difficult economic environment. I am calling on Speaker Pelosi and President Obama to allow all members of the House – Republican and Democrat – to vote on legislation that would prevent tax increases for every American."
