WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), Chairman of the Joint Economic Committee, released the following statement on the Senate vote on the Middle Class Tax Cut Act of 2011.
“As the clock ticks down to the expiration of the middle class tax cut, I am disappointed the Senate failed to pass my bill to extend and expand this tax cut to provide $1,500 to the typical working family. My bill would have also provided tax relief to businesses to help them create jobs and grow. This isn’t the end. I will keep working to reach agreement and pass a bill that protects Pennsylvania families and creates jobs.”
