Hoyer Wants Unemployment Extension, Immigration Rewrite Before Unpaid-For Tax Credits

House Minority Whip Steny H. Hoyer called Republicans to task on Thursday for bringing up unpaid-for tax extenders while allowing unemployment insurance to lapse, and suggested that all of it could be paid for if the House passed a comprehensive immigration overhaul.

In his weekly colloquy, the Maryland Democrat told Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., that it is not right for Republicans to demand that certain policies be offset such as a "doc fix" and unemployment insurance while the House plans to take up a $155 billion permanent research and development tax credit that is not paid for.
