Congress, without the help of U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall, finally came together to protect the middle class.

On Tuesday, Congress passed a bipartisan compromise that extends much needed tax cuts for middle class Georgians and local small businesses.

Unfortunately, Rep. Woodall, who represents a large number of local Georgians, voted, in effect, for a $2,200 tax hike on middle class families in the midst of a slow economic recovery.  By taking money out of the pockets of middle class families, this kind of tax increase would have threatened to derail the progress our state has made since the beginning of the recession. 

I am excited to continue the work of Georgia Fair Share to give every Georgian a fair shot and a secure future.  The coalition that has been built right here in Gwinnett County will continue to work on behalf of middle class Georgians, and we will ensure that Rep. Woodall is held accountable for voting against the interests of the middle class voters that elected him. Millions are still out of work and the economy has a long ways to go until we are fully recovered from the recession.

Kudos to Jason Pfeifle for pointing out one of Rob Woodall’s many shortcomings… Rob, I appreciate that you chose to increase our taxes… you are only looking out for yourself and the rest of those living in the Republican Bubble. Please cease your obstructionist ways and work for your constituents.
