Governor Douglas Backs Middle Class Tax Cut Framework

Montpelier, Vt.–(ENEWSPF)–December 8, 2010.  Governor Jim Douglas this morning spoke with the White House regarding the tax compromise reached by President Obama and Congressional Republicans.  He issued the following statement in support of the compromise:

“Vermonters and all Americans are looking for Washington to produce results.  If we are to address our country’s challenges, Republicans and Democrats can no longer take an all-or-nothing approach to governing.  

“The compromise reached between President Obama and Republicans is a reasonable approach to helping the American people during this difficult time, while ensuring that tax increases do not burden the recovery.  I hope leaders in Washington can build on this collaboration to address the most critical issue facing our nation’s long-term economic health, the national debt.”
