Hagan Statement on Vote To Stop Tax Increases On Middle Class Families

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Kay Hagan (NC) released the following statement about tonight's vote in the Senate on a plan to stop taxes from increasing for middle class families:

"While I believe it is unacceptable that Washington has once again waited until the eleventh hour to find a solution, and though I would have preferred a comprehensive, balanced solution to avert the fiscal cliff and begin reducing the deficit, I voted for the plan put forth tonight so that we can stop a tax hike on middle class families in North Carolina. The average family in our state will see their taxes increase by $2,200 without this action.

"We still have issues surrounding the fiscal cliff that we must resolve, including the defense cuts that will have an outsized impact in North Carolina and our skyrocketing federal debt. The challenges we face may be complex, but working together should not be this hard, and I will continue urging my colleagues on both sides of the aisle and both sides of the Capitol to come together to work on a commonsense solution."
