Rep. Rick Larsen, WA-02, issued the following statement today after the House of Representatives approved by voice vote a bill to extend unemployment benefits, protect seniors' access to health care and preserve middle class tax relief.
"This bipartisan bill is a victory for all Americans," Larsen said. "House Republicans finally stopped playing politics and listened to their constituents and colleagues. Extending unemployment insurance, protecting seniors' access to health care and giving tax relief to the middle class will keep the economy moving and help speed recovery. We need to create jobs, not play politics with the American economy."
