"It's time for serious action. No more kicking the can down the road. No more using the threat of middle class tax hikes to force last minute deal-making. The debate over taxes and revenues is done," Sen. Deb Fischer (R-NE) declared In the Weekly Republican Address.
"Tax increases barely pay for a few days of government spending and in all my years of public service, I have never had constituents ask me to raise their taxes.
The problem is not that the American people are taxed too little; it's that the federal government spends too much."
