Duncan explains “no” vote to avoid cliff

January 2, 2013

A bi-partisan vote late last night in the U-S House of Representatives in Washington saves the country from going over the fiscal cliff, but South Carolina’s Third District Congressman cast his lot with the minority. The vote was 257-167. Jeff Duncan, Republican from Laurens, said, “I voted ‘no’ on the Senate ‘compromise’ on the fiscal cliff last night. Instead of making our country more secure, this compromise places our country on even shakier fiscal ground by completely ignoring why we’re $17 trillion in debt….” Duncan went on to say, “Our government spends too much. That is the bottom line.”
