Rep. Sean Duffy (WI-07) released the following statement after last nights House vote on the Fiscal Cliff:

I respect the effort that went into crafting this agreement which will prevent tax increases for many Americans, including many hard-working Wisconsin families. While my constituents want lower taxes, they also demand fiscal responsibility. They know that with more than $16 trillion of debt and borrowing $1 trillion a year our country is on an unsustainable path. I voted against this deal because it does not include a serious, sustainable plan for balancing the budget and reducing our debt.
