Sen. Fischer Gives GOP Weekly Address: "The Debate Over Taxes And Revenues Is Done"
GOP: In the Weekly Republican Address, U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-NE) points out that with the tax debate over, Washington can now focus on the real source of our nation's deficits: out-of-control Washington spending. Sen. Fischer calls on Congress to make the difficult decisions now: "It's time for serious action. No more kicking the can down the road. No more using the threat of middle class tax hikes to force last minute deal-making. The debate over taxes and revenues is done. Tax increases barely pay for a few days of government spending and in all my years of public service, I have never had constituents ask me to raise their taxes. The problem is not that the American people are taxed too little; it's that the federal government spends too much."
