U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita today issued the following statement after voting to oppose the deal to increase federal spending by hundreds of billions of dollars:

"I opposed this bill because we have a spending problem, and the deal sent over by the Senate makes it worse. I will not consign our children to a debtors' prison just to block President Obama's tax hikes.

"While Congress and the White House have steered the nation around a fiscal pothole tonight, we are still hurtling toward the real fiscal cliff. We must get serious about our debt crisis before it's too late," said Rokita.
