Congressman Alan Nunnelee (R-Miss) released the following statement onhis opposition to the McConnell-Biden fiscal cliff deal:
"Out of control spending is the reason we are $16 trillion in debt and, unfortunately, this deal adds to the problem. Allowing more revenue today and promising to look at cutting spending down the road is the oldest trick in the Washington book. Somehow, the day to cut spending never comes. I cannot support a deal that adds to our spending-driven debt crisis."
Congressman Alan Nunnelee represents Mississippi's First Congressional District and serves on the House Appropriations Committee. This is his first term.
