Highlights from Conf. Call W/ U.S. Rep Southerland (FL-2) & FL GOP Chairman Curry

- December 14, 2011

U.S. Rep Steve Southerland (FL-2):

“Main Street America expects action from their Representatives, and once again, the people’s House has acted. We passed the bill last night with bipartisan support and now the bill goes to the upper chamber of the Senate and we will anxiously watch to see what Harry Reid will do with, I believe, this very good piece of legislation.

“This bipartisan jobs plan extends payroll tax relief and unemployment insurance for Americans struggling under this Obama economy. It protects social security. It jumpstarts the  private sector job creating measures, including the Keystone pipeline…

“The President often says that there is a Republican Congress. Well, unfortunately, he is incorrect. There is a Republican House of Representatives, but at the time currently the second house of Congress is a Democratic-controlled Senate.

“The House has passed 27 growth bills that have withered on a vine in the Senate. Main Street American can ill-afford for this piece of legislation to become number 28. We need to get this bill to the President’s desk. The clock is ticking...”

FL GOP Chairman Lenny Curry:

“I’m particularly proud of our Florida House members for this bill. This bill is a common sense solution, it will benefit Americans, create tens of thousands of jobs, and frankly, it will prevent tax increases on people that can’t afford one at this moment in time...

“But again, the president is playing class warfare, smoke and mirrors in Washington, and putting politics first, and it looks like Senator Reid and Senator Nelson are going to do everything they can to help him to continue to play these games...

“They’ve chosen not to work with Republicans to create jobs. It’s true that they are more concerned with subsidizing political allies than job creating projects like the Keystone pipeline and again protecting Americans from a tax increase... 

“Republicans have done their jobs, we want to protect American workers and now it is up to Senate Democrats and President Obama to stop this middle class tax increase. A failure on this bill will be a failure to the American people.”
