"Now is not the time to raise taxes on anyone. These cuts will provide some financial security at a time when our economy is still in a vulnerable position. I strongly believe that small businesses are the key to our economic recovery, and we should be giving them the support they need to thrive."
"I didn't vote for the health care bill because it wasn't the right formula, and I was worried about the overall cost," said, Rep. Glenn Nye, a Virginia Democrat campaigning for re-election.
