WASHINGTON –U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) today said the Senate Majority lacks a plan to address the impending “fiscal cliff” and said recent actions to cancel consideration of appropriations bills and raise taxes only exasperates the crisis.
“This is the fifth straight year that Washington’s excessive spending has led to a trillion dollar deficit. In the past four years, our national debt has increased by over five trillion dollars. It now sits at a jaw dropping 15.9 trillion dollars. And the Senate Majority’s only answer to this crisis is to raise taxes on our job creators during a time while our country has an unemployment rate over eight percent.”
