Re:        Baucus Comment on the President’s Call for Action on the Fiscal Cliff

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) today made the following statement regarding President Obama’s call for action on the year-end fiscal issues, known as the fiscal cliff.

“I welcomed the President’s call today for action on the fiscal cliff and the need for Congress to work together to address one of our nation’s greatest economic challenges,” Senator Baucus said.  “The election is over, and it’s time to move forward.  The American people want Congress working together to break the gridlock of the past two years.   

“We all know what needs to happen.  Congress must quickly come together around a balanced plan that provides some certainty to American families and businesses, supports jobs, expands opportunity and puts America’s economy back on track.  It’s time to roll up our sleeves and get this job done.”
