Statement by White House Press Secretary on Republican Obstruction of Jobless Benefits and State Aid

Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–June 25, 2010.

Yesterday, Republicans in the Senate for the second time blocked a bill that includes critical aid for states and American families.  This legislation extends benefits for Americans looking for work and would save the jobs of thousands of teachers, firefighters and police officers by providing relief to states struggling with budget shortfalls.  And it includes tax cuts for businesses that keep research and development jobs here in the United States.  By blocking an up or down vote on this legislation, Republicans in the Senate obstructed a common-sense package that would save jobs, extend tax cuts for businesses and provide relief for American families who have suffered through the worst economic downfall since the Great Depression, even after Democrats offered multiple compromises to gain Republican support for the bill.  The President has been clear: Americans should not fall victim to Republican obstruction at a time of great economic challenge for our nation’s families. The President will continue to press Congress to pass this bill and bring this relief that’s critical to our economic recovery.
