Kristi Noem Statement on the House Fiscal Cliff Vote

The US House voted last night to approve the “Fiscal Cliff” bill.


Kristi Noem (R-SD)Since the deadline for the expiration of the so-called Bush tax cuts had passed as of midnight on 1/1/2013, a vote to approve the Fiscal Cliff Crisis Bill (HR 8) was actually a vote to REDUCE taxes on most Americans.


Shortly after the vote, South Dakota’s lone Congresswoman issued the following statement:

This vote protected 99 percent of South Dakotans from President Obama reaching into their pockets and taking more of their hard-earned money to subsidize his continued deficit spending.

As a member of the political party that does not control Washington, DC, I’m here for damage control. I won’t stand by and allow this President bring more uncertainty into this country by preventing farm families from passing on their family businesses and hard-working moms and dads from being able to put food on their tables.

Now is the time for Pres. Obama and Democrats in Congress to work with Republicans on spending reform so we can get serious about providing the leadership the American people so desperately need.

    Sorry Kristi, but the Republicans created the “Fiscal Cliff,” and you can not take credit for voting for the Democrat compromise. President Obama tried for months to get this compromise through, but was blocked by Republicans until hours after the deadline. But then you have never had much of a grasp on reality.

    Great comment Jackie. Exactly. Someone has to speak the truth on this blog and not just spin. Usually I come here for sanity but not today… Not today…

    If I wanted to watch spin I’d watch my drier.

    Noem sold out ten fold on this bill.

    I hope she faces an opponent, and I am sure she will. She is/was the final republican I will ever vote for. When John Thune tells her to jump, she says “how high”. I will vote libertarian the rest of my days. The GOP can take a flying leap.

    Sorry, Kristi. Say anything you like, but if you have a primary opponent next time, guess who will be getting my vote. It will not be you.
