Linda Sánchez Statement on Extension of Payroll Tax Cut and Unemployment Insurance

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congresswoman Linda Sánchez (CA-39) released the following statement after House Republicans finally agreed to a bill that provides 160 million Americans a $1,000 payroll tax cut, extends long-term unemployment insurance and prevents deep cuts in payments to doctors who see Medicare patients:

"This is good news for Southern Californians. I am pleased that millions of American families won't see their taxes go up, unemployment benefits will be extended, and seniors will continue to get the Medicare services they've earned. I fully supported these extensions, and so did the American people. I don't understand why Republicans continue to employ brinkmanship so that they can fight for tax breaks for billionaires. I look forward toward passing legislation with a yearlong extension of the payroll tax cut and unemployment insurance, which also ensures that seniors can continue to have a choice when it comes to their doctors."
