Schlafly to Senate Republicans: Thank You for Hearing the American People

Dec 01, 2010, 17:15 ET from Eagle Forum

WASHINGTON, Dec. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Phyllis Schlafly, president and founder of the pro-family organization Eagle Forum issued the following statement about Senate Republicans' unanimous commitment to block all legislative business until Senate Democrats hold a vote on stopping the massive tax increase set to take effect when the Bush era tax cuts expire at the end of the year.

"On behalf of Eagle Forum and the families we represent, we thank Senate Republicans for listening to the American people and demanding that the government deal with the most important legislative issue at hand."

"The liberal Congress has gotten away with irresponsibly running the federal government without a budget, but American businesses and families don't have that luxury!"

"It is unconscionable for Congress to use the lame duck session to pay back liberal interests and to sneak through controversial nominees while American families and businesses face one of the largest tax increases during one of the worst economic recessions in history."

"We thank the Senate Republicans for putting their differences aside and putting the American people's interests before politics."
