Rep. Karen Bass Statement on Extension of Payroll Tax Cuts and Unemployment Benefits


Location: Washington, DC

Today, U.S. Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) released the following statement on the congressional votes to extend the payroll tax cut and unemployment benefits:

"This vote is not a win for either Democrats or Republicans, but a victory for the American people. American families no longer have to worry about continuing to struggle as they look for work and more than 160 million workers will not see their paychecks shrink at such a critical time in our nation's economy. While we still have more work to do to ensure these resources are available throughout next year, but I am confident that Congress will come to a bipartisan agreement."
