TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Congressman Raul M. Grijalva released a statement today regarding his vote to favor the House Payroll tax cut extension.

By extending the existing payroll tax cut, this bill not only places an average of $1,000 in the pockets of American families, but also extends unemployment insurance for people who have lost work during the economic downturn.

“The Congressional Budget Office estimates that for every dollar spent on unemployment benefits, it puts as much as $1.90 into our economy,"says Grijalva.
