LINDSEY GRAHAM: ‘We’re Going Over The Cliff’…”The president’s plan does nothing but damn us to becoming Greece.”
Dec 2 2012
In perhaps the most pessimistic view of the status quo of fiscal cliff negotiations, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday on CBS’ “Face The Nation” that “we’re going over the cliff.”
“I think we’re going over the cliff. It’s pretty clear to me they made a political calculation,” Graham said of President Barack Obama’s opening offer, which includes $1.6 trillion in tax hikes and $400 billion in entitlement cuts.
“The president’s plan does nothing but damn us to becoming Greece,” Graham said, who called the entitlement cuts “a joke.”
