4. Statement from Lieutenant Governor Murray on economic recovery
“The President has set the country on a path of economic recovery and with his reelection, we have a chance to continue this progress. The American people voted to keep moving forward and they voted for action. This includes working together to deliver a real solution to address the deficit. President Obama has proposed a fair and balanced approach – including asking those who earn more to pay their fair share, and extending tax cuts for families making less than $250,000 a year. This approach makes sense and would prevent taxes from going up for 98 percent of Americans and 97 percent of all small businesses. I urge Congress to act quickly to reach an agreement.”
