Weekly GOP Address On Preventing High Taxes 12/18/10

From the Republicans; “In the Weekly Republican Address, Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) discusses how the changes Americans voted for in November are already affecting Washington.
Sen. Cornyn says, “Republicans prevented a massive, job-killing ‘New Year’s Day tax increase.’… This bipartisan agreement was made possible because voters gave Republicans much more leverage at the negotiating table. Our leverage forced the White House to abandon its ‘class-warfare’ rhetoric; stop pandering to the President’s left-wing base; and do the right thing for American taxpayers and job creators.”
He also points out that Republicans “[held] the line on reckless federal spending.”
Sen. Cornyn explains, “Despite their willingness to work with Republicans on taxes, Senate Democrats went their own way on spending by proposing a nearly $1.3 trillion omnibus bill on the American people and by insisting we’d have to vote on it before anyone had the time to figure out what was in it…. “Senate Republicans stood together but we did not stand alone. Millions of Americans made their voices heard on Facebook, Twitter and other social media. You lit up the phone lines across the Capitol and across the Nation. Thank you for doing that. You helped strengthened the resolve of the Republican Caucus and rattled the nerves of the big spenders on the other side of the aisle.”
