Sen. Paul Statement on Fiscal Cliff Negotiation
WASHINGTON, D.C. - This afternoon, following discussions with his Senate colleagues on the current fiscal cliff negotiations, Sen. Rand Paul released the following statement.
"It's impossible to get to any deal on the fiscal cliff when Majority Leader Reid and President Obama refuse to consider meaningful cuts in spending. They are demanding we raise taxes on working families and small businesses - and worse - using these tax increases for more government spending," Sen. Paul said. "Sending more taxpayer dollars to Washington isn't the solution to this situation; cutting wasteful government spending and enabling Americans to keep more of their own money is."
