Cooper Statement on House's Failure to Pass Payroll Tax Cut Extension

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Congressman Jim Cooper (TN-05) had the following to say about the U.S. House of Representatives' vote to reject a bipartisan Senate bill that would extend payroll tax cuts, unemployment benefits, and Medicare reimbursements for physicians:

"Once again, Congress is embarrassing America. While Congress is playing the blame game, Tennesseans are facing real financial pain. Without prompt House action, by New Year's Day, payroll taxes will increase 48 percent, doctors will face 27 percent Medicare cuts, and unemployed people could lose everything. I am ready to work all through Christmas to make sure this does not happen."
