Alexander Votes Against “Another Short-Lived, Expensive ‘Stimulus’ Bill”

Posted on July 12, 2012

WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on his vote against S.2237, a bill that would create a temporary stimulus measure delivered through a payroll tax credit:


“I voted against passing another short-lived, expensive ‘stimulus’ bill that will only increase our debt and do little to end the 41 straight months of above-8 percent unemployment. Tennesseans are counting on American businesses to grow and add jobs, which will be hard to do as long as Washington sees spending as the solution rather than true reforms that give employers confidence to hire and entrepreneurs opportunity to start businesses.”
