Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today after the House of Representatives left town for the holidays without taking meaningful steps to address the “fiscal cliff” that the nation will go over in 10 days.

“The last thing Congress should be doing is going home rather than working to move forward with a meaningful solution. Months ago, I proposed a compromise plan that would bridge the gap by asking those who have the most to contribute a little more to protect the middle class, small businesses and family farms.  I will be remaining in Washington, prepared to work with anyone who is willing to actually get things accomplished to move our country forward.  Unfortunately, instead of pursuing a solution, it seems the majority in Congress has again decided to bring the economy to the brink.  Washington needs to get serious, get to work, and get this done now.”
