Time for Senate Democrats to Act

·         The House of Representatives has passed bills to prevent a massive tax hike on all Americans, replacethe sequester with responsible spending cuts, and meaningfully address our nation’s ballooning national debt.

 

·         There’s no excuse for inaction—Senate Democrats should take this legislation up and amend it if they so choose.

 

·         The longer Majority Leader Reid sits on the sidelines, the closer America gets to the fiscal cliff.

 

House Republicans have acted:

 

·         House Republicans have passed legislation that would protect all Americans from the looming tax hike.

 

·         In addition to preventing the tax increase, House Republicans have acted to replace the sequester with responsible spending cuts.

 

·         The House has taken action to meaningfully address Washington’s out-of-control spending and dangerous national debt.

 

It’s time for Senate Democrats to act:

 

·         Yesterday, Senate Majority Leader Reid stated, “We are not going to take up anything they are working on [in the House].”

 

·         Senate Democrats can continue to point fingers and blame, or they can take up the House-passed legislation.

 

·         Unless Senate Democrats join with House Republicans in passing a bill to avert the fiscal cliff, taxes will rise on every American taxpayer.

 

The longer Majority Leader Reid sits on the sidelines,

the closer America gets to the fiscal cliff.
