7th District Congressman Rob Woodall took to the House Floor to urge the President to offer spending cuts along with tax increases.
“Mr. Speaker, my challenge today to the White House, to my friends on the left: make it hard on me as a freshman and a conservative … Lay out those tax increases right beside solutions to the real problem, which is spending, and make those spending reductions so large, and so helpful to the American economy, that I would have no choice but to agree to your tax increases so that we can save the country from the real problem, which is spending,” Woodall said.
