Menendez Calls On Senate Republicans To Stop Obstructing Tax Bill, Help Give Relief To 1.4 Million Middle-Class NJ Taxpayers

Washington - Republicans in the U.S. Senate today continued to obstruct a bill that would prevent millions of middle-class Americans from paying the higher Alternative Minimum Tax originally designed years ago for the ultra-rich. Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) released the following statement:

"Today, it is clear the only strategy Republicans have is obstruction. They blocked the very proposal they said they would support. Without a fix to the Alternative Minimum Tax, our state will be hit harder than any other, and there will be 1.4 million middle-class New Jerseyans whose jaws are going to drop when they prepare their taxes next year. They are going to be furious that Republicans in the Senate would play political games with their hard-earned money. For the sake of middle-class taxpayers, it is time to put games aside."
