Boehner Rejects Tax Hikes In Job Stimulus Plan

September 20, 2011 by  

Boehner addressed the nation in response to the Obama jobs plan speech last week, and called for a new highway-funding bill that would be combined with a resolution to expand the U.S. energy exploration.House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has made a firm stance against any type of tax increases in response to President Barack Obama’s job stimulus plan, The Washington Times reported.

Along with his condemnation of the plan put forth by the Obama Administration, the Representative noted that the 12-member deficit supercommittee should lay out the groundwork for a full rewrite of the U.S. tax code, according to the newspaper.

Boehner addressed the nation in response to the Obama jobs plan speech last week, and called for a new highway-funding bill that would be combined with a resolution to expand the U.S. energy exploration.

“I think tax reform should deal with the whole tax code, both the personal side and the corporate side, and it should result in a code that is simpler and fairer to everyone,” Boehner said in his address. “Now tax increases, I think, are off the table, and I don’t think they are a viable option for the joint committee.”

While he took a firm stance against tax increases, Boehner did note that the tax loopholes for corporations should be closed as part of the reform that may take place, according to MSNBC.
