Heller Speaks About Fiscal Cliff

(Washington, D.C.) – On the Senate floor, U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) spoke about the fiscal cliff.

Fiscal Cliff


“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 both parties.  We must find a way to come together right now.  The severe spending cuts and looming tax increases require it.

“Nevada is already struggling to overcome the highest rates of unemployment, foreclosures and bankruptcies in the nation. The threat of this fiscal cliff and any failure to find a solution would have a real and negative impact on recovery in my state.

“There are a number of issues that Republicans and Democrats can work to address immediately. First, we must stop living by a temporary tax code. 

“Second, we need fundamental tax reform. As with many small businesses across this country, businesses  want nothing more than to grow, hire more people, and pass on a legacy to their children and grandchildren that shows with hard work and dedication anything is possible in America. 

“Third, we need to put a stop to the ever-increasing number of regulations. Instead of encouraging businesses to develop and grow, Washington has increased their burden with miles of regulatory red tape, passed a health care law that is costing jobs, and continues with a top down Washington knows best mentality that has led to an anemic economy.

“Divisive partisan politics does a great disservice to every American.  Far too many Nevadans are forced to stay up late at night wondering how they are going to make their mortgage payment, send their child to college or feed their family. While people across our country are struggling to get by, Congress has a responsibility to prioritize the people over the party, and find a way to avoid this looming crisis and get our economy back on track…”
