New Jersey Citizen Action Statement On Boehner's "Plan B," White House Veto Threat — Thursday, December 20, 2012

HIGHLAND PARK, NJ December 20, 2012 — New Jersey Citizen Action (NJCA), a member of the national Americans for Tax Fairness coalition which supports a tax system that works for all Americans, released a statement today on U.S. House Speaker John Boehner's "Plan B," which is scheduled for a vote at 6pm today.

"Plan B is just another political ploy when what we need is a real solution. It's time for the Speaker to stop playing political games and ask the richest 2 percent of Americans to pay their fair share. Boehner's proposal does not raise taxes on the richest 2 percent, does not raise enough revenue to reduce the deficit and rebuild the economy, and it would raise taxes by an average of $1,000 on 25 million working families with children and students," said Phyllis Salowe-Kaye, Executive Director of New Jersey Citizen Action.
