Senator Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) released the following statement today on the various proposals regarding the Bush tax cuts:
"The best thing Congress can do to restore economic growth and job creation is to enact a comprehensive bipartisan plan to balance our budget along the lines of the Bowles-Simpson report. There is plenty of time left this year to get this done if we want to. For this reason, I will vote against both the President's partial repeal of the Bush tax cuts and the Republican plan to extend all the cuts for another year. I think we can do better than that this year. We can cut spending and adopt tax reform and entitlement reform. While that hope is alive, I will vote against both partial measures and proposals to put off the tough decisions our constituents elected us to make.
