Long Statement on Fiscal Cliff


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Billy Long issued the following statement after voting no on legislation dealing with the fiscal cliff:

"Increasing taxes and not addressing Washington's out of control spending problem will not avert the fiscal cliff. The problem is not that people are taxed too little; the problem is that Washington spends too much. We must get serious about our nation's fiscal situation. That means reforming the tax code to make it fairer, flatter, and simpler, and having an honest discussion with the American people on entitlements and Washington's reckless spending. We must make tough choices now to ensure we do not destroy our country for future generations. Squeezing more money from hard-working Americans does not address the real problem, which is out of control spending."
