To be delivered to: Rep. Daniel Maffei (NY-24) and The United States House of Representatives
The Senate has passed an extension of the middle class tax cuts, but the GOP controlled House has refused to allow a vote on the measure. If there is no vote prior to Dec 31, then taxes for all will go back up. The President has asked the House to take up the Senate bill and indicated he would sign it. Minority Leader Pelosi has initiated a discharge petition that requires 218 signatures to force a vote--that means that all Democrats and 25 Republicans need to sign this discharge petition before a vote can take place.
