Congresswoman Virginia Foxx makes debt statement

Published On: Jan 02 2013 05:08:54 PM CST

Congresswoman Virginia Foxx from North Carolina believes the fiscal cliff bill ignores America's debit crisis while growing the size of government.

In a press release she says, "I could not in good conscience vote for a Senate deal that delays savings while expanding spending subsidies and ignoring the real drivers of debt."

Foxx says, "Rather than fixating on Clinton-era tax rates, the President and Senate Democrats would better serve the country working to shrink the federal government to Clinton-era size. Americans' catastrophic national debt demands it. The debt clock is ticking."
