Congressman Bob Gibbs' Statement On Payroll Tax Deal

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Bob Gibbs (R-OH) issued the following statement after the House passed a 60-day extension of the payroll tax reduction, unemployment benefits, and Medicare physician reimbursement rates after the Democrat-led Senate agreed to appoint conferees and begin working with House Republican negotiators on a long-term solution:

"I am glad that Congress finally reached an agreement that ensures working families will not see a tax hike on January first and that small businesses will not be forced to deal with a complex new payroll reporting system. While I'm disappointed that Senate Democrats have so far refused to provide a full-year extension, I'm pleased that they agreed to go to Conference to negotiate a long-term, full-year deal that provides certainty to American families, job creators, senior citizens and their doctors."
