Conyers Lauds Passage of Two Month Payroll Tax Cut
(WASHINGTON) – Today, Congress passed a two month extension of the payroll tax cut, unemployment insurance, and the Medicare physician fee fix. Representative John Conyers, Jr. (D-Mich.) issued the following statement in response to the House and Senate’s action:
“Today is a victory for the working families, seniors, and the unemployed who were held hostage by yet another last minute crisis orchestrated by extreme Tea Party House Republicans,” said Conyers. “The passage of the two month extension will ensure that 160 million middle-class families won’t see their taxes increase, millions of jobless Americans will have access to unemployment benefits, and millions of seniors on Medicare will continue to have access to the doctor of their choice.
