Iowa GOP Chairman Statement on Fiscal Cliff Deal


Iowa GOP Chairman Statement
on Fiscal Cliff Deal

Praises Senator Grassley,
Urges Congressmen Latham & King to Vote “No”


DES MOINES, Iowa– The Republican Party of Iowa released the following statement from Iowa GOP Chairman A.J. Spiker in response to ongoing debate on Capitol Hill over the “Fiscal Cliff Deal.”

“I am proud of Senator Chuck Grassley and thank him for standing up for taxpayers by voting ‘No’ on the so called “Fiscal Cliff Deal.” The bill passed by the Senate early this morning raises taxes without any meaningful spending cuts. The so called “Fiscal Cliff Deal” will only hurt middle class families, continue out of control government spending and fails to address the $16.5 Trillion Federal deficit. I strongly urge Congressmen Tom Latham and Steve King to follow Senator Grassley’s leadership and vote ‘No’ on this ill-advised bill when it comes to the house floor.”
