[r45] Statement on Unemployment Insurance Fund (4/30/2009)

Thursday, April 30, 2009

Start Date: 4/30/2009 All Day
End Date: 4/30/2009

Please insert this comment from Rep. Bruce Borders (R-Jasonville) in your news coverage on legislative action on unemployment insurance:

"Let's get real about this unemployment tax.  Creating jobs by raising taxes on businesses by $400 million is like healing a cut on your hand by cutting off your arm.  It's backwards logic at its worst. 

"If you want less of something, tax it.  The House majority raised the taxes on employment through the roof.  Why should they be surprised when employers respond by refusing to hire more Hoosiers?"
