Congressman Fleischmann Comments on Passage of H.R. 8

WASHINGTON− Congressman Chuck Fleischmann issued the following statement tonight after the passage of H.R. 8. 

“Months ago, the House passed bills that extended tax cuts for all Americans and responsibly dealt with sequestration.  Unfortunately the Senate waited until the final days of the year to look at any solutions.  What they produced does nothing more than kick the can down the road on the most serious issue facing our nation. 

“As I have long said, we have a spending problem not a revenue problem.  The bill sent back to the House not only allowed taxes to increase but increased spending by $330 billion.  It was simply something I could not support.”
