WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to the Department of Labor's report this morning that indicated that unemployment claims fell below one million for the first time since March, Stephen Moore, Chair of the FreedomWorks Task Force on Economic Revival, commented:
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Despite the conventional, inside-the-Beltway wisdom that the prospect of a payroll tax cut was dead in the water, FreedomWorks has kept up the pressure on our elected officials in recent weeks. In response to reports that President Trump will in fact sign an executive order for a payroll tax cut, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:
As we have seen in the past few relief packages, Democrats in Congress have shown their willingness to use the COVID-19 pandemic as a pretext for endless spending. The House’s passage of the HEROES Act was no different.
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to the rollout of the Health, Economic Assistance, Liability Protections, and Schools (HEALS) Act, Senate Republicans’ plan for the phase IV COVID-19 relief package, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Save our Country Coalition today announces the launch of a new three part ad campaign that lays out what any phase IV Coronavirus relief package must include, namely a payroll tax holiday for America’s workers (not more unemployment benefits), liability shields for businesses, as well as no further bailouts for Blue cities and states.
While much of the American workforce remains at home, there are still many out there working hard to keep the lights on. America can’t afford to continue providing massive unemployment payments to some, while leaving Americans who continue to work high and dry. The least we can do for these Americans is give them a payroll tax cut. Stimulus payments have been horribly mismanaged, but a payroll tax cut would provide direct relief to hard-working Americans and businesses.
