UNITED STATES -- Congressman Chris Gibson released a statement regarding his vote on the House fiscal cliff bill.
It said in part, "I support this bill and voted ‘yes’ as it provides much needed tax relief for over 99 percent of my constituents. Making these tax cuts permanent was one of my major goals when I first ran for Congress."
Gibson went on to say, “Unfortunately, we did not get the major agreement necessary to stabilize the deficit. We need to pick up the pace to achieve necessary long-term deficit reduction or we will decline as an economic power and take with it the hopes and dreams of future generations.”
