McIntyre Votes ‘NO’ On ‘Fiscal Cliff’
WILMINGTION, NC (WWAY) — After the House voted late Tuesday, averting the “fiscal cliff,” U.S. Representative Mike McIntyre was quick to say he voted against the Senate’s proposal.
“It is absolutely critical that a sensible resolution of the ‘fiscal cliff’ be reached with bi-partisan support, but the Senate’s proposal is not the way to resolve this important issue for the following reasons,” Rep. McIntyre said, “It will add almost $4 trillion to the nation’s debt. It delays spending cuts; and it does not provide for comprehensive tax reform that can help our small businesses create jobs.”
Rep. McIntyre said, “The financial markets, small business and the American people are looking for stability and accountability, not a temporary fix. A comprehensive solution is needed that includes getting our national debt under control and reining in government spending.”
In statements prior to the House vote, Senators Kay Hagan and Richard Burr said they voted to approve the measure.
