Freshman Lawmakers Urge Senate Democrats to Delay Vacations, Back Full Year Extension of Payroll Tax Relief

House Republican freshman lawmakers urged Senate Democrats today to put their vacations on hold and work with the House to extend the payroll tax break for a full year — as requested by President Obama and passed by the House last week.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) said a full one-year extension would provide more certainty for small businesses struggling in President Obama’s economy:
