Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.) Friday issued the following statement upon the House passage of the payroll tax cut extension by a 293-132 vote: "There are a number of provisions I oppose in this measure, and the American people deserve better than a litany of intermittent stop-gap measures. Nevertheless, we have a responsibility to ensure fhat Medicare payments for health care providers and unemployment benefits for working families are not interrupted. This measure will avert a painful tax increase next month while ensuring there is no interference with the Social Security benefits that are supposed to be paid to retirees and workers; tile Social Security trust funds are protected and preserved. "Misinformed hyperbole aside, this is a responsible measure that keeps our promise to seniors and working families."
