(RALEIGH) -- U.S. Senate Democrats have unveiled legislation this week that will extend and expand the payroll tax cut next year. Republican North Carolina Congresswoman Renee Ellmers said what is really need is real tax reform.

"Payroll tax holiday, yeah sure, that's okay. I think we can do that, but it's not the answer and that's what our President and that's what Harry Reid and the Senate keep pushing for, these tiny little feel good measures.  We don't need more gimmicks.  We need leadership," said Ellmers.

The current 2 percent payroll tax cut is set to expire on Dec. 31. The legislation would extend the cut through next year, and expand it to 3.1 percent, saving the average American family about $1,500 on their taxes over the next year.
