Reid: The Senate Must Continue To Fight For Unemployed Nevadans

Washington, DC—Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today after Republicans blocked passage of the American Jobs and Closing Tax Loopholes Act, a bill that would close outsourcing tax loopholes, give small businesses tax relief, and extend unemployment assistance to millions of Americans:
“Unemployed workers in Nevada and across America cannot afford the games that Senate Republicans are playing with their economic certainty.  I am disappointed that despite high unemployment numbers in Nevada and across the nation, not one Republican voted to provide out-of-work Americans the support they need to make ends meet.  Senate Democrats will continue to fight to pass this bill and restore peace of mind to the middle-class families across America who Republicans have repeatedly turned their backs on.”
