(Trenton)– With less than a month remaining before the New Year, President Obama is committed to fighting for an extension of the middle class tax cuts and working toward a balanced approach to reducing our nation’s deficit. Assemblyman John Wisniewski, Chairman of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee, issued the following statement:

“Even as people in our state were still reeling from Superstorm Sandy, New Jersey voters went to the polls this November and elected President Obama with a larger margin than we had in 2008. We sent a clear message to Washington: we support President Obama and want Congress to work with him to help middle class families and find a solution to bringing down America’s deficit in a balanced manner. President Obama has a plan that reduces our deficit by $4 trillion. It asks the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share and continues making the investments needed for economic growth – such as key investments in small businesses, American manufacturing, education, and clean energy.

As many New Jerseyans are still struggling after the devastation wrought by Sandy, we need Congress to renew the middle class tax cuts and offer these families relief and certainty at a time when they need it most. If Congress does not act, New Jersey families- some of whom are still displaced from their homes- will see an income tax hike of $2,200. We call upon New Jersey Republicans, both in Congress and in Trenton, to urge their colleagues to do the right thing by coming to the table and agree with the President on a credible plan that pays down our nation’s deficit and protects the investments that will continue to grow our economy.”
