Miller Statement on Fiscal Cliff Agreement


Location: Unknown

Rep. George Miller (D-Martinez) released the following statement after the House of Representatives passed the "Fiscal Cliff" agreement:

"Tonight in Congress the important art of compromise was revived, an art that had been stifled since the Tea Party took over the House two years ago. I voted for the bi-partisan compromise fiscal cliff agreement to prevent a tax hike on the middle class, to increase tax rates on the wealthiest, and to continue unemployment insurance, tax credits for low-income families and small businesses, and investments in renewable energy. Not a perfect deal, clearly, but a solid agreement that paves the way for important, although, difficult decisions in the next few months ahead."
