BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. AL GREEN of Texas. Mr. Speaker, I support a one-year extension of the payroll tax holiday, unemployment insurance and protecting seniors' access to their Medicare physician. However, both Democrats and Republicans in the Senate of the United States voted overwhelmingly to extend these expiring provisions for two months, so that Congress might have adequate time to negotiate a longer term extension for the American people. House Republicans' refusal to vote on the Senate compromise puts at risk American middle class families at a time when we must do all that we can do to support them.
