Makes Marriage Penalty Tax Relief Permanent
For Immediate Release.
October 4, 2002 The
House of Representatives should be hailed for their effort in passing
by a 285-130 vote on October 2, 2002, House Resolution 543 (H.Res. 543)
Expressing the Sense of the House of Representatives that Congress Should
Complete Action on H.R. 4019, Permanent Marriage Penalty Relief Act
As a result of just
being married this unfair marriage tax penalty penalizes more than 36
million working couples — many who exist from pay check to pay check
to meet their living expenses. This
bias against marriage discourages millions of individuals from getting
married; instead, they decide to remain single to avoid paying this
higher tax. This tax would be reimposed on couples after 2010 by failure to
enact permanent marriage tax relief.
It is time that Washington once and for all eliminates this tax
penalty against marriage and eliminate it permanently so individuals
across America will be encourage to get married instead of remaining
single to avoid this tax.
“The American family
is the foundation of this society,” said Dr. Joel P. Rutkowski, president
of the American Voice Institute of Public Policy.
“It should be promoted not stigmatized and robbed so that Washington
can have more of the hard working Americans’ money for their pork barrel
