President Barack Obama hails legislation extending a payroll tax cut for two months, but pushes Congress to extend the benefit ...

[Notes:Dec. 23, 2011][Notes:Washington]OBAMA SOT: I said it was critical for Congress not to go home without preventing a tax increase on 160 million working Americans and I'm pleased to say they got it done. So I want to thank all the members of Congress for ending the stalemate and making this happen. Because of this agreement, every working American will keep their tax cut, about $1,000 for every typical family. And that translates into an extra $40 or so into every paycheck. Viral unemployment insurance will continue for millions of Americans who are looking for work. And when Congress returns I urge them to keep working without drama and delay to reach an agreement that extends this tax cut as well as unemployment insurance to all of 2012. Last week I said this should be a formality, and that's still the case. So let's make sure we extend this tax break and unemployment insurance for a full year for families but also for our economy. It's the right thing to do because more money spent by more Americans means businesses hiring more workers, and that's a boost for everybody and that's a boost we very much need right now.(****END****) VIDEO PRODUCER: ---------------------------VIDEO SOURCE: Pool-----------------------VIDEO APPROVAL: ----------------------------VIDEO RESTRICTIONS: ----------------------------------MARKET EMBARGO (S): --------------------------------SCRIPT/WIRE SOURCE:
