Sen. Chambliss' Statement on the Fiscal Cliff Vote


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), released the following statement regarding the Senate's fiscal cliff vote:

"The Senate voted on a deal to avoid the worst of the fiscal cliff by compromising on tax provisions and delaying implementation of the sequester. This deal is far from what this country needs, but I cannot in good conscience allow taxes to be raised on all Americans and send our economy into turmoil.

"While I am pleased that most Americans have been saved from an increase in taxes, I won't be satisfied that the Senate has finished its work on the fiscal cliff until significant spending cuts on discretionary and entitlement spending have occurred.

"The president failed to negotiate a deal to reduce our debt, but I, like other Senate Republicans, look forward to the very real opportunity to negotiate substantial, meaningful spending cuts in the coming weeks."
