Sen. Toomey: Concentrate On Job Creation

Tuesday, Jan 7

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement about today's vote to proceed to the unemployment insurance extension bill.

"Unemployment insurance is part of the safety net for America's workers when they hit hard times.

"I have voted to extend unemployment benefits beyond the 26 weeks in the past.

"Unfortunately, this bill does not address the underlying problem. It does nothing to boost economic growth or spur job creation. A better approach would be to address the Administration's job-killing policies, such as Obamacare, the War on Coal, and our overly complex tax code.

"In addition, the measure adds $6 billion to our deficit. In the past, we have found ways to pay for extensions in unemployment insurance and we should do the same now. Unfortunately, it appears Republicans will be denied any input including amendments to create jobs or reduce spending to pay for the bill.

"I will continue working with my colleagues on both sides to spur more job creation."
