Runyan Responds to Passage of Fiscal Cliff Deal

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Jon Runyan (R-NJ) issued the following statement regarding the passage of a compromise bill to avoid going over the fiscal cliff.

"Given the choices on the table, I ultimately decided to support the compromise to spare my constituents and 99% of American taxpayers an income tax hike that neither they nor our economy can afford. Unfortunately, this legislation is merely another Washington-generated band-aid that does little more than kick the can down the road again, while failing to address the federal government's unhealthy addiction to spending. I am hopeful the President and members of both the House and Senate can do more problem-solving and less finger-pointing in the next Congress and address the very serious fiscal problems we face."
