Guinta holds Stop the Tax Hike event

(Continued)

Lawmakers are considering various bills in Washington. There’s disagreement over whether all or just some of the cuts should be extended, Guinta said.

The House has agreed to extend all the cuts, Guinta said. The Senate voted Wednesday to extend tax cuts for all but the highest-earning Americans.

After touring the Londonderry company, Guinta told employees the issue extends beyond party lines. He said it’s critical that they vote to elect the best possible leaders. New Hampshire’s three other members of Congress also support extending the tax cuts.

“With 41 straight months of over 8 percent national unemployment, the last thing our economy needs is a job-killing tax hike,” U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., said.

U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., voted for the tax cuts and urged the House to do the same, according to Shaheen spokeswoman Faryl Uryl.

Raising taxes on working families and small families must be avoided, said Stephanie DuBois, spokeswoman for Congressman Charles Bass, R-N.H.
