Johnson Responds to Fiscal Cliff Negotiations

Press Release

Date: Jan. 1, 2013

Today, U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) released the following statement regarding the so-called fiscal cliff.

"With time running out to avert the fiscal cliff, we have not yet seen a realistic deal that I can support. The President insists on higher taxes on small businesses and hard-working families as the answer to getting our fiscal house in order. This is outrageous. Washington has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. I have heard from many of my constituents in the Third District of Texas, and they are fed up with Uncle Sam reaching deeper into their pockets to fund the government's out-of-control spending. We will not get our country back on track without spending cuts, and I remain committed to not raise taxes on Americans."
