Fleischmann Comments on Pending Failure of "Super-Committee"


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Chuck Fleischmann commented on the pending failure of the "Super-Committee" to find a solution.

"I opposed this committee from the very beginning. I voted against the final deal to implement this committee and the ramifications that failure would bring. I did not believe in ceding the power of 535 elected representatives of the American people into the hands of twelve. I also did not believe in allowing failure by the committee to bring crippling cuts to our Defense Department," Fleischmann said.

"I have voted for the "Path to Prosperity' budget and a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, both of which are ways to get our fiscal house in order across the board, while doing the job the American people elected us to do -- not continuing to kick the can down the road.

"It is unfortunate that President Obama, and Democrats on the committee, only offered a solution of more failed stimulus spending and phantom savings through the winding down of our wars overseas. We just passed the $15 trillion mark for our national debt, and the President is more concerned with running against Congress for re-election than he is in making the tough choices necessary to ensure a better future for our children and grandchildren. Our country deserves better."
