Burton applauded

Keywords Opinion

As lawmakers mull whether the mortgage interest deduction should be on the chopping block to rein in the growing federal deficit or change the federal tax code, U.S. Rep. Dan Burton should be commended for co-sponsoring House Resolution 25, which expresses the sense of Congress that the mortgage interest deduction should not be altered.

Burton understands that cutting the tax benefits associated with owning a home would deliver a body blow to the fragile housing recovery by inflicting a huge tax hike on millions of middle-class home owners.
