Rep. Devin Nunes released the following statement regarding the vote today in the House of Representatives to extend the payroll tax cut:
"The President demanded a one-year extension to the payroll tax cut and the House of Representatives agreed by passing a one-year extension. The Senate disregarded prudent policy by passing a mere 60-day extension and ran home for Christmas. This is unacceptable and creates economic uncertainty for working families and businesses. The Senate needs to return to Washington and join Republicans at the negotiating table to hammer out a long-term package. We have eleven days remaining to do what is right for the country."
