Bishop votes to prevent major tax increase

Utah Congressman Rob Bishop, R-District 1, voted Tuesday in favor of the Job Protection and Recession Prevention Act of 2012. In a press release, Bishop says it will prevent the largest tax increase in American history by extending current tax rates on all income tax levels for one additional year.

Bishop says raising taxes on anyone right now would have a similar effect on our economy as ice skates would on an Olympic runner. He says things would be exponentially slower, a lot more unsteady, and it would destroy the ability to remain competitively globally.
