Congressman Ike Skelton
WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 4, 2010) — Today, Congressman Ike Skelton (D-Mo.) made the following statement after the House of Representatives approved H.R. 2847, the Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act.

“One of Congress’ top priorities is to promote private sector job growth during this tough economy. The jobs bill that passed out of the House today would do that by enacting a bipartisan payroll tax holiday for businesses that hire unemployed Americans, by cutting small business taxes to help them expand and hire workers, and by investing in highway and infrastructure improvements throughout the United States.

“This small business jobs bill was supported by and written by Republicans and Democrats and recently passed the Senate with 70 votes. It is fully paid for under PAYGO and represents a bipartisan step to help get our economy working again for families, farmers, and small businesses — not just for Wall Street bankers.”

The HIRE Act, which passed the House today by a vote of 217 to 201, is a $15 billion bundle of tax cuts, hiring incentives, and infrastructural investments designed to spur job growth and small business expansion.

Congressman Ike Skelton (D-Mo.) serves as chairman of the House Armed Services Committee. Congressman Skelton’s website is at www.house.gov/skelton.
