U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer released the following statement Monday after House Republicans released a memo outlining their fall agenda: [from FNC's Chad Pergram] -

“House Republicans are struggling to play catch up on jobs after Chairman Bernanke called for more aggressive fiscal policies than they have supported so far. But when they even stall common-sense measures like continuing the payroll tax cut for the middle class, it’s clear Republicans are still putting politics ahead of our economic recovery. Their agenda seems intended only to provide cover for blocking the kind of pro-growth proposals needed to make a difference.”
