Rep. Schiff Calls for Balanced and Bipartisan Approach to Avert Fiscal Cliff


Location: Washington, DC

After last night's failure to come to an agreement on Speaker Boehner's "Plan B" legislation to avoid going over the Fiscal Cliff, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) once again called for the Speaker, President Obama and Congressional leaders to come together to pass a bipartisan and balanced bill that would avert end of the year tax increases and spending cuts:

"It is plain from the Speaker's failure to get a majority of his conference to support his own proposal, that he must instead move to a balanced plan that, if it will not attract a majority of GOP members, can instead pass the House with votes from Members of both parties. A bipartisan approach has not been tried by the Speaker and is the only way to avoid the fiscal cliff.

"It is disturbing that we have adjourned for the week without resolving this matter, and it is imperative that we come back shortly, reach a reasonable compromise and avoid the dire consequences of failure."
