Today, U.S. Congressman Marlin Stutzman issued the following statement regarding his opposition to legislation passed by the Senate last night to avert the so-called "fiscal cliff:"
"A tax hike without spending cuts is not a serious attempt to solve our country's debt crisis. We face a debt crisis because Congress and President Obama have refused to make hard choices and this latest 'deal' is just another example. It's time for Washington to get serious and reform our nation's entitlements and tax structure, not just simply raise taxes that will hurt small business owners and their employees."
