Rep. Graves Statement on Fiscal Cliff

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-09) issued the following statement on the fiscal cliff legislation passed by the U.S. Senate earlier today:

"The Senate bill offers no commitment to debt reduction, only a demand from taxpayers to bailout Washington. As taxes rise, freedom diminishes. Without any spending reforms, the debt crisis continues. I cannot support a bill that protects Washington and promotes bigger government at the expense of my constituents and future generations.

"What began in 2011 as an effort to address our nation's debt crisis has been twisted by the president into a mandate to raise taxes. Every effort to reform spending has been bucked in favor of raiding the wallets of hardworking Americans.

"If Congress does not work with more conviction to solve the spending problem, we may soon realize we're already over the cliff, and in a fiscal freefall."
