Heller Speaks About Fiscal Cliff
(Washington, D.C.) – On the
Senate floor, U.S. Senator Dean Heller
(R-NV) spoke about the fiscal cliff.
HERE TO VIEW THE CLIP
“We must move forward knowing that
the only way to build a better, stronger
nation is by working together and finding
solutions on which both Republicans and
Democrats can agree. Any solution to the
impending fiscal cliff must be a bipartisan
effort that fairly weighs the concerns of

nothing more than to grow, hire more
people, and pass on a legacy to their
children and grandchildren that shows with

over the party, and find a way to avoid
this looming crisis and get our economy
back on track…”
