Statements about Taxes

Letting the Bush tax cuts expire would raise taxes on small businesses.

$65 billion "would be added to the deficit if we keep the cuts for people on the highest incomes."

Republican plan to extend Bush tax cuts "would double deficit projections going forward for the next couple of decades."

"If all of the [Bush-era] tax cuts expire on schedule, the budget will be close to being balanced in four years."

Says Robert Hurt "supports the tax loopholes that send American jobs overseas."
