Update My Profile


Today, the Joint Economic Committee released a new report, which includes a county-by-county breakdown of the additional take-home pay that workers here in Maryland and throughout the country will receive if middle-class tax cuts are extended through the end of 2012.

According to the report, a one-year extension would allow the average Fifth District worker to take home over $700 dollars more in 2012, and the average family with a two-person income an additional $1,425. For more information about the positive benefits a one-year extension would provide Maryland workers and their families, click here.

With less than a month left to take action on expiring items, I remain focused on extending these important middle-class tax cuts, as well as unemployment assistance and ensuring Medicare and TRICARE patients continue to have access to their physicians. The American people cannot afford for Republicans to walk away from these expiring provisions like they did last December, so I am hopeful that we can come together and reach an agreement on a full-year extension so that families and businesses have the certainty they need.

As always, thank you for allowing me to share this update with you, and please continue to share your concerns and insights with me by contacting my office or connecting with me on Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube.

With warmest regards, I am

Sincerely yours,

Steny H. Hoyer
