Rep. Kinzinger Votes in Favor of Fiscal Cliff Compromise

-By Warner Todd Huston

116th District Congressman Adam Kinzinger has voted in favor of H.R. 8, the American Taxpayer Relief Act — the fiscal cliff compromise — saying that passage prevents largest tax increase in American history.

“Tonight I supported legislation to avert the fiscal cliff with reservations. While the American Taxpayer Relief Act provides permanent tax relief for millions of families and small businesses, it fails to include necessary spending cuts.

“This bill also extends the farm bill through the end of the fiscal year, extends the Medicare Sustainable Growth Rate for a year, and makes permanent current death tax policy.

“The House acted numerous times, well before the January 1st deadline, to offer a balanced approach. I’m disappointed that the Senate and White House ignored these talks until the eleventh hour. In the coming months, the Senate and White House must work with us to tackle serious fiscal reforms including the sequester and the debt ceiling. The American people chose a divided government in Washington and they’re counting on us to work together.”
