Local lawmakers give thoughts on fiscal solution
Some Colorado leaders welcome the U.S. Senate's passage addressing tax cuts, saying it's a vital solution to the fiscal crisis. However, they're calling the plan imperfect.
Many say the nation needs a long-term, more comprehensive solution for the deficit. They’re calling on congress to find a better plan.
Most Americans will now be spared any major or lasting blows to their paychecks.
That’s something Senator Mark Udall agrees is important, but he says the current deal is not one he would've written.
After the senate passed the bipartisan agreement to protect the middle class, he said, "When congress reconvenes in 2013, I will continue to push for a bipartisan deal on the deficit that grows our economy and responsibly reflects the federal government."
Representative Scott Tipton is hoping for a balanced solution that includes spending cuts.
On his Facebook page he says he's urging leadership to take action and bring a measure up for a vote to provide certainty for our farming and ranching community.
