Western New York Congresswoman Kathy Hochul said middle-tax tax cuts should become permanent.
"Let's just stop the fighting. Don't hold people in this country hostage any longer," said Rep. Hochul. "Tell the middle class families that those tax cuts will be permanent."
The tax-breaks, in place since 2003, will expire at the end of this year. President Obama is pushing for an extension.
But Hochul wants tax cuts for those earning less than $500,000 a year to keep to stay in place without an expiration date.
