WASHINGTON, D.C. (WTVA) -- Mississippi Congressman Alan Nunnelee voted no on the fiscal cliff deal.
The Republican released the following statement, showing his opposition to the McConnell-Biden plan:
“Out of control spending is the reason we are $16 trillion in debt and, unfortunately, this deal adds to the problem. Allowing more revenue today and promising to look at cutting spending down the road is the oldest trick in the Washington book. Somehow, the day to cut spending never comes. I cannot support a deal that adds to our spending-driven debt crisis.”
