The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is attacking House Republicans over their plans to extend the Bush-era tax cuts without paying for them with budget cuts.
In a statement Wednesday, the DCCC pointed out that House Republicans pushed to offset the extension of a payroll tax cut earlier this year. Democrats have labeled the payroll tax cut a break for the middle class but argue that extending the full slate of Bush tax rates would disproportionately benefit the wealthy.
“It’s clear House Republicans have one set of rules for millionaires and another set of rules for everybody else,” DCCC spokesman Jesse Ferguson said. “When it comes to giving more tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires, House Republicans don’t want to pay for it, but when it comes to middle-income families, Republicans demand that middle-income Americans sacrifice to pay for it. The hypocrisy is stunning and this is just the latest reminder of House Republicans’ wrong priorities that help millionaires at the expense of the middle class.”
