Small Business And Infrastructure Jobs Tax Act Of 2010


Mr. BECERRA. Madam Speaker, I thank the gentleman for yielding, and just to correct the record once again, this bill, unlike previous bills passed by our colleagues and friends on the other side of the aisle, is completely paid for. There is not a cent that would be added to the deficit. You have to make some tough decisions when you pay for things, but this bill is completely taken care of and paid for. So the tax cuts we give to small businesses, we take care of that. We don't do it in an irresponsible fashion. That is why we should vote for this legislation.

We need to put this country back on track and back to work, and this bill continues a series of legislation that have come through this House, gone to the Senate and been signed by the President which put America back to work. The economic recovery package which too many of our colleagues rail against, the independent, nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has told us has already created at least 2 million jobs in America; and we still have more of the economic recovery package effects to take place over this coming year.

What we do know is if we keep at it and do it responsibly, we can put America back to work. That is what this is all about. That is why we should support this legislation. I urge my colleagues to support this bill.
