Larsen: Irresponsible Republicans Should Stop Blocking Bipartisan Deal to Protect Medicare, Assist the Unemployed and Provide Tax Relief to the Middle Class

PRESS RELEASE: Congressional Republicans are irresponsibly blocking a bipartisan deal that would protect Medicare and extend unemployment insurance and give tax relief to the middle class, Rep. Rick Larsen, WA-02, said today. House Republicans are vowing to vote down a bipartisan agreement to extend the provisions which passed the Senate on an 89 to 10 vote. If the provisions are not extended before the end of the month, doctors across the country will stop accepting Medicare patients, 50,000 Washington residents will lose unemployment insurance, and all middle-class workers will see their taxes increase.
