HON. RON PAUL OF TEXAS IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Wednesday, March 4, 2009

2009 Ron Paul 22:1
Mr. PAUL. Madam Speaker, today I am introducing two pieces of legislation to help the increasing number of Americans who, because of the recession, have lost their jobs. The first bill, the Unemployed Tax Relief Act, makes a laid-off worker’s last paycheck tax free.


2009 Ron Paul 22:2

The second bill, the Unemployment Assistance Act, allows unemployed people to make penalty-free withdrawals from accounts such as Roth IRAs and 401(k)s, to cover living expenses, health care, education, and job training expenses. People who make these penalty- free withdrawals while unemployed will be able to replenish their accounts once they have started new jobs.


2009 Ron Paul 22:3

Madam Speaker, while we may disagree about the best solutions to the economic crisis gripping the nation, I hope my colleagues will at least agree on these commonsense measures and cosponsor the Unemployed Tax Relief Act and the Unemployment Assistance Act.
