The United States must rein in its spending. That’s the assessment of Congressman Todd Rokita (R-IN4).
He voted against the bill designed to address the fiscal cliff issue, citing the nation’s growing debt as the real problem.
Rokita says the proposals discussed over the past few weeks were good tax reform measures.
“Fixing the AMT (Alternative Minimum Tax), handling the estate tax, so our farmers and others have certainty in planning, and it saved about 98% of tax-filers from a tax increase, so those are good things. As tax reforms they were good.”
