United States Senator For Georgia Saxby Chambliss Dear Friends, For the past two years, I have been pushing for a plan to cut spending and put America back on the path to a balanced budget. The fiscal cliff bill did not do that. This bill was solely to prevent a massive tax increase for 99 percent of Americans. I wished there had been spending cuts in this bill, along with a plan to pay down the debt and extend lower tax rates for all Americans. However, not voting for this bill would have meant a tax hike for ALL Americans. Milk prices would have doubled. Even Congress would have gotten a pay raise. I voted to protect as many Americans as I could, and there is certainty in the marketplace again. For me, this vote was about stopping bad tax policy. Now that we have dealt with the Democrats� demands on taxes, we can focus on Republicans� demands to cut spending when the debt ceiling vote comes up soon. *Washington�s out of control spending must stop. * � To watch me discuss the Fiscal Cliff deal, click below: [image = chambliss.enews.senate.gov//images/user_images/novemberaddress.jpg] [link 1] � � To watch my weekly YouTube address in which I discuss this issue further, click below: [image = chambliss.enews.senate.gov//images/user_images/newsletter fiscal cliff image.png] [link 2] If you are planning a visit to D.C., I hope you will stop by my office and say hello, or pick up a pack of Georgia peanuts.

Dear Friends,

For the past two years, I have been pushing for a plan to cut spending and put America back on the path to a balanced budget. The fiscal cliff bill did not do that. This bill was solely to prevent a massive tax increase for 99 percent of Americans. I wished there had been spending cuts in this bill, along with a plan to pay down the debt and extend lower tax rates for all Americans.

However, not voting for this bill would have meant a tax hike for ALL Americans. Milk prices would have doubled. Even Congress would have gotten a pay raise.

I voted to protect as many Americans as I could, and there is certainty in the marketplace again. For me, this vote was about stopping bad tax policy. Now that we have dealt with the Democrats’ demands on taxes, we can focus on Republicans’ demands to cut spending when the debt ceiling vote comes up soon.

Washington’s out of control spending must stop.
