U.S. Congresswoman Nan Hayworth, M.D. (NY-19) released the following statement after the Conference Committee reached an agreement on extending the payroll tax break, unemployment benefits, and Medicare physician reimbursement rates:
"Today the Conference Committee agreed to a report extending the payroll tax holiday, federal contribution to unemployment benefits, and current Medicare reimbursement rates for doctors. I have always supported these programs, and in recent days I've been privileged to be a highly visible advocate for providing the greatest possible certainty to hardworking taxpayers, job-creating employers, the growing ranks of unemployed Americans, and our seniors and doctors who rely on Medicare. Our agreement here today is a result of Republicans and Democrats coming together to serve our constituents and the American people."
