Camp Statement on Democrats’ Massive Deficit-Spending, No-Jobs Bill

May 20, 2010

Washington, DC – Ways and Means Ranking Member Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement upon release of a summary of the Democrats’ so-called tax extenders package which has been reported to contain in excess of $150 billion in unpaid for spending and provides zero net tax relief.

“The massive and unprecedented deficit spending in the stimulus bill didn’t create jobs and neither will this bill.  This is just more spending on the same failed policies and no net tax relief.  This isn’t a tax-extender bill; it is a deficit-extender bill.”
