Casey Statement on the Fiscal Cliff

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), Chairman of the Joint Economic Committee, today released the following statement on the fiscal cliff:

“Now is the time for Republicans and Democrats to come together in the best interest of our nation.  Pennsylvanians and people across America have called for a balanced approach that protects the middle class.  I am optimistic that we can reach an agreement that avoids the fiscal cliff and keeps the economy moving and I look forward to working with members on both sides of the aisle to make sure that happens.”
