Brown Statement On Deal To Avert The Fiscal Cliff

WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) issued the following statement on the deal reached today to avert the fiscal cliff:

"While this deal isn’t perfect, it represents an important down payment in reducing the deficit and getting America’s fiscal house in order. It also prevents dangerous cuts to Social Security and reduces the deficit  by asking millionaires and billionaires to pay their fair share. Moving forward, I’ll be working to ensure that future deficit reduction efforts are based around shared sacrifice rather than balancing the budget on the backs of seniors, middle class families, and working Americans."
