REP. FRANK GUINTA STATEMENT ON LAST EVENING’S VOTE PERTAINING TO THE FISCAL CLIFF LEGISLATION
(Washington—January 2, 2013) Rep. Frank Guinta (NH-01) issued the following statement regarding his vote on H.R. 8:
"From mayor of our state's largest city to Representative of New Hampshire's 1st District, protecting Granite State taxpayers has always been my top priority. We simply cannot afford to continue to ignore the need to address out-of-control government spending and deal with our insurmountable debt and deficits.
"Last evening, I could not support a bill that failed to include any meaningful spending cuts, increases our debt by trillions, and does nothing to promote pro-growth economic principles. Granite Staters deserved better."
