Video: Senator Ayotte Delivers Weekly GOP Address, Discusses “Fiscal Cliff”

“We’ve had a spirited debate this year about the future of our country,” New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte explained on Saturday during this week's GOP address. “The American people expect Republicans and Democrats to work together to solve the difficult challenges we face. For too long partisan bickering has paralyzed Washington, preventing members of both parties from reaching across the aisle to find common ground. That must stop.” Watch the full clip below:

“Tax reform that eliminates wasteful tax preferences to generate revenue will help bring fairness and efficiency to our tax system. This approach makes more sense than raising tax rates—which will harm nearly a million small businesses and cost hundreds of thousands of jobs.

Curiously, President Obama said himself in 2009 -- as Ayotte points out -- that raising taxes on high income earners during tough economic times could have potentially devastating consequences:

Now, it seems, members of the president’s own party are gleefully willing to let the country go sliding off the so-called “fiscal cliff” if Republicans don’t agree to raise taxes on upper income earners. Of course, this really shouldn’t surprise anyone. Why? Because Republicans (rather unfairly) are finding themselves with their proverbial backs up against the wall, and will almost certainly be blamed by the American public if the negotiations fail. But it gets even worse: The One is reportedly traveling to Asia on Sunday to begin, among other things, cementing and “building his legacy.” Wow. It's a good thing there aren’t more pressing and urgent matters he should be attending to -- and addressing -- right here at home.
