Michigan's Junior US Senator is continuing to urge congressional republicans to expand a payroll tax cut due to expire at the end of the year, despite senate rejection of one plan Thursday.
US Senator Debbie Stabenow supports expanding the payroll tax cut from two-percent to three-point-one percent.
She says the change would benefit $5.2 million dollars Michigan workers and add $5.5 billion into the state economy.
She says if the tax cut expires on December 31st, it will end up costing Michigan taxpayers about one-thousand dollars per family next year. (MRN)
