Chairman Camp Statement on Payroll “Backup Plan”

February 13, 2012

Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI), who is leading the conference committee to resolve differences between the House and Senate on the payroll tax holiday, unemployment benefits and the Medicare “doc-fix,” issued the following statement:
“I have spoken with my fellow House Republican conferees and we are committed to resolving the differences between the House and Senate.  While we will continue our negotiations in good faith and remain hopeful that a deal will come together, we also recognize that the clock is ticking.  As such, I fully support and think it is prudent for our leadership to take whatever action is necessary to ensure American workers are not hit with a tax increase on March 1.”
