Udall Statement on Payroll Tax Extension Agreement
WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) today issued the following statement after a two month extension of the payroll tax holiday, unemployment benefits and Medicare fix passed both the House and Senate:
"The House-passage of the payroll tax cut extension and unemployment insurance is a relief for working families around the country. They stood to lose the most if the House Republicans failed to act. When Congress resumes in the New Year, it's critical that we begin passing long-term solutions to provide more stability and stimulate our economy in a way that protects the middle-class."
