Buffett Tax, Not Jobs, is White House Focus


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement about yet another attempt by the administration to push for the Buffett tax rather than take action on bipartisan jobs and energy legislation stalled in the Democrat-led Senate:

"Sadly, an administration that promised it would focus on jobs is wasting yet another day on a political event that won't take a single person off the unemployment line. With millions out of work, gas at nearly $4.00 a gallon, and the election still seven months away, Republicans are calling on the President to join us in support of the dozens of jobs and energy bills that have passed the House but are stalled in the Democrat-led Senate. We should be focused on jobs and energy legislation that can pass--not tax-hike show-votes designed to fail."
