Congressman Chuck Fleischmann voted for the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act. It will extend the payroll tax cut, reform unemployment benefits, reduce spending and will help with the building of the Keystone XL energy pipeline and the thousands of jobs it would produce.
"Anytime we can keep more money in the hands of the American people it is a win for our economy. I have long advocated that our economy works best when the people of this country have their own money to spend instead of the government making those decisions," Fleischmann said.
"This bill also goes a long way to helping create thousands of jobs through the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, reducing EPA regulations and helping small businesses keep more of their capital. These are the kind of private sector solutions our economy needs right now; less government, more jobs."
