Jan 2, 2013 Washington, D.C. – Congressman Visclosky released the following statement after casting a “no” vote on the fiscal cliff deal advanced by federal lawmakers:

“I have long maintained that the solutions to our nation’s fiscal problems must be balanced and comprehensive. Unfortunately, the plan passed by the House and Senate to avoid the ‘fiscal cliff’ is neither. While I am heartened that most Americans will not see their tax rates increase, the plan adds $4 trillion to the national debt while leaving some of the most pressing tax and spending issues facing our country unresolved. The American people deserve more than a Congress that continually kicks the can down the road and fails to provide true certainty to all Americans. I urge my colleagues to get back to work and develop a real plan to put our country on a sounder fiscal footing.”
