Durbin Statement on a Bipartisan Solution to the Fiscal Cliff

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin (D-IL) released the following statement today on the need for bipartisan cooperation to avoid the fiscal cliff:

"The only way Congress can avoid the so-called fiscal cliff is through a balanced approach that cuts spending and raises revenue while asking millionaires and billionaires to pay their fair share. That is the approach the American people have shown they support and it long-past time for both parties to come together and reach an agreement."

"I served on the Bowles-Simpson Commission, voted for their recommendations and have worked for the last two years to find a bipartisan and balanced approach to put our fiscal house in order while protecting the most vulnerable in our society. It can and must be done and I'm optimistic we can reach an agreement."
