Detroit Mayor Backs Middle Class Tax Cut Framework

Statement from Mayor Dave Bing on President Obama's Framework Agreement:

Office of the Mayor
City of Detroit

"President Obama’s announcement of a deal that ensures that working families and those looking for work will receive the support they need as our economy continues to recover is good news for Detroit. We cannot afford to turn our backs on the unemployed and the middle class in the kind of difficult times we’re facing. This agreement also sets the stage to help businesses in our city and across the country make the necessary investments to jumpstart our economy.  It is an example of the kind of difficult but necessary choice we have to make to move forward."
