Congresswoman Julia Letlow (LA-05) today released the following statement on her vote against the Senate Amendment to H.R. 5376 -- the Reconciliation Bill.
"The legislation will only worsen the economic pain of this recession. Americans are stretching their budgets to accommodate the rising prices everywhere from the gas station to the grocery store, and now they will have to do it with less money in their pockets. The last thing our hardworking families and small business owners need is to send more dollars to Washington while a weaponized IRS preys on them. I look forward to working with my Republican colleagues in the new Congress on legislation that will bring real economic relief."
