Pence says Republican majority would move first to extend Bush tax cuts09/02/10 06:45 AM ET-
House Republicans' first move in the majority would be to extend tax cuts set to expire at the end of the year, House GOP Conference Chairman Mike Pence (Ind.) suggested Wednesday evening.Pence, the third-ranking Republican in the House, said that House Republicans would look to extend the tax cuts they helped President George W. Bush pass in 2001 and 2003, which are set to expire at the end of the year.
"Well, we're going to stay focused on Election Day. But I think before that, we're going to continue to demand that this administration and this Congress make it clear that no American will see a tax increase in January of next year," Pence said during an appearance on CNBC.
"So the first thing that we will do is try to preserve the tax relief of 2001 and 2003 for all Americans — for all small businesses and family farmers. But we also want to look at the kind of across-the-board tax relief, the kind of tax relief that will encourage capital formation, to get this economy moving again," the Indiana Republican and potential presidential candidate added.
Batavia, Sep 1 - Today, Congressman Bill Foster (IL-14) announced that the Office of National Drug Control Policy has awarded Drug Free Communities (DFC) Support Program awards worth $125,000 each to the Bureau County Health Department and their coalition, Community Partners Against Substance Abuse (CPASA), and the Ben Gordon Center in DeKalb and their coalition, DeKalb County Prevention for a Safe, Active and Family Environment, to prevent and reduce youth substance abuse.Stop the spending, cut the taxes, and put people back to work. A businessman ought to know that, but Bill Foster's no businessman. He's a Congressman doling out pork to his friends.
"Preventing and reducing substance abuse leads to safer and healthier communities that we can all enjoy," said Foster. "This renewed funding will help the Bureau County Health Department and the Ben Gordon Center to save young lives and mobilize our communities to come together for a common goal."
