As thousands of Black Friday deal hunters filled the Oxford Valley Mall, members of PA Working Families suspended a 30-foot banner calling for an extension of middle-class tax cuts across the Woodbourne Road overpass in Middletown.
The banner hung above I-95 and read: “Tell Rep. Fitzpatrick: Extend the Middle Class Tax Cuts, 866-426-2631.”
In a release, the group said they are calling on Bucks County Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick to vote to extend tax cuts that help the middle class.
"Donald Trump doesn’t have to wake up at 4:00 a.m. to save money on a toaster, but the middle class do. We need the middle class tax cuts so that we can put people back to work and keep our economic recovery going,” Warminster resident Mary Downing is quoted as saying in a release.
President Obama recently called for an extention of the middle-class tax cuts. He also called for taxes to be increased for the raised on the wealthiest Americans, according to a story from McClatchy Newspapers.
