Blackburn: The American People Are Tired of Broken Promises

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Marsha Blackburn (TN-7) today issued the following statement regarding her vote in opposition to the Conference Report on H.R. 3630, extending the payroll tax holiday.

"On this third anniversary of President Obama's failed stimulus bill, we are reminded how the Obama economy is killing the ability of American job creators and the hard-working tax payers to achieve their hopes and dreams. We also should remember why the American people sent us here.

"While I support the spirit of this legislation to provide hard-working taxpayers with the relief they deserve, my vote today is about more than that. At some point you have to say stop the madness.

"This would have been a great opportunity to draw a line in the sand when it comes to protecting the solvency of Social Security, and we missed it. More importantly, it's about broken promises. When the American people gave Republicans the opportunity to lead, we made a pledge to be open and transparent -- a promise that no bill would receive a vote without first being publicly available for 72 hours. The American people are tired of broken promises. They expect us to keep our word."
