Press Release

 “We know the positive things that can happen when we standup for ourselves.  We’ve done it here in Western New York and today the powerful force that is the will of American people broke through Washington brinksmanship delivering the payroll tax cut struggling families desperately deserve. 

 “With an agreement to do what is right and what should have been done last week, an average of $1,000 will stay in the pockets of each and every hardworking man and woman. 
 
“I am pleased Congress is taking this action to protect the people’s paychecks come January 1st and I hope this is a learning experience for DC partisans that will lead to better collaboration in the new year.”
