Rep. Peter King (R-NY) says that Republicans in the House of Representatives have a “mandate” to prevent tax cuts for the rich and other Americans from expiring even though exit polls showed voters supported tax hikes.
“As far as Congress, Republicans feel strongly that tax rates should not be increased,” King told CNN’s Candy Crowley on Sunday. “Having said that, I think John Boehner — Speaker Boehner has shown his willingness to work out an agreement here. That can be done by effecting deductions, loopholes — which would include those in the upper brackets — so that the president could get the revenue that he says that he’s looking for, but it will be done in a way that tax rates are not increased.”
