Mitchell on stimulus vote: The risk of inaction is too great

From a statement:

Today, U.S. Rep. Harry Mitchell and the House of Representatives voted to stem massive job losses and provide critical tax relief to Arizona employers and working families.

“Arizona’s job losses last year were worse than every other state but one. People are facing foreclosure and struggling to make ends meet,” said Mitchell. “The risk of inaction is too great. This bill will create and maintain jobs and we must take this step to get people back to work and get the economy back on track.”

Over the next 18 months, this legislation is expected to create or save up to 3.5 million jobs nationally, including approximately 70,000 jobs in Arizona.
