Perlmutter Calls on Tea Party Republicans to Stop Playing Games

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Today, U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter called on Washington Republicans to end the partisan games and brinksmanship, and pass important relief for our senior citizens and millions of American families and get to work ensuring people have good jobs to start in the New Year.

"Once again, Tea Party Republicans are playing games with Americans because they want to block the President's agenda. Because of their irresponsible actions, 160 million Americans face a tea party tax increase in the New Year, and 48 million senior citizens may lose access to their doctors. This is no way to run a business, a family and certainly not our nation. Every day Republicans engage in these kinds of games is a lost opportunity to create jobs."
