Reid Spokesman Statement On Republican Payroll Tax Cut Proposal

Washington, D.C. – Adam Jentleson, spokesman for Nevada Senator Harry Reid, released the following statement today.

“We are glad Republicans have seen the light and taken up Democrats’ call to pass a middle-class tax cut, just a few days after their leadership indicated they would oppose it. However, Democrats’ proposal would put more money in the pockets of middle class families and create more jobs. The Republican proposal cannot pass the Senate as it stands, but now that Republicans have reversed their position on this middle-class tax cut, we look forward to working with them to negotiate a consensus solution.”
