Rep. Johnson votes for American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
"The package, which is a balance of tax cuts and investments, is an effort to help lift our sagging economy and put people back to work," said Johnson, citing the loss of jobs as his biggest concern.
While hopeful, Johnson cautioned that the plan would "not be a cure all" or "solve all our problems."
"The economic problems weren't created in a day, and they won't be solved overnight," said Johnson. "But with unemployment in Georgia rising above 8 percent and climbing, I cannot sit idly by while as so many of my fellow Georgians struggle to pay bills, keep their homes or businesses and pay for college."
