Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2011

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mrs. BIGGERT. I thank the gentleman for yielding.

Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of H.R. 3630. I appreciate the efforts of the chairman and my colleagues who serve on the relevant committees in crafting a package that responds to the needs of all Americans right now.

The bill addresses the urgent struggles of the unemployed and small business owners. It recognizes that we cannot dig our way out of a recession with more taxes and higher deficits. Whether you are a job creator or a job seeker, the bill extends critical assistance at a time when millions of Americans need it most. The bill does all this and more without adding one penny to the deficit. Important government reforms and cost-saving measures were included in the bill to reduce the debt and implement long overdue reforms. It's also important to note that this compromise takes steps to protect the Social Security Trust Fund.

Mr. Speaker, this bill is a smart step towards job creation and economic certainty. I urge my colleagues to support the bill.
