Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), the Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, issued the following statement regarding Congressional Democrats decision to ignore the will of the American people and advance a policy that would raise taxes on small businesses and the American people:
"They just don't get it. Clearly, Congressional Democrats learned nothing from the lessons of November 2nd. The American people had a clear choice between those that want to cut taxes for all Americans and those that want to raise them and they chose decisively. Instead of living up to the mandate set by the American people, Congressional Democrats have defied the will of the American people choosing instead to play politics with this issue and advance a job-killing, tax-raising agenda that has been rejected by the American people."
