Obama, Noem Both Urge Passage of Tax Cut Deal

Tom Williams/Roll Call
Rep.-elect Kristi Noem agreed with President Barack Obama in the Republicans’ weekly radio address Saturday morning that the tax cut deal should be passed swiftly.

But Noem added that while the tax package “would be a good first step, this alone won’t eliminate the job-killing uncertainty hanging over our employers and entrepreneurs.” The South Dakota Republican said: “We need to focus on cutting spending and reducing the size of government. The American people want us to stop spending dollars we don’t have.”

In addition, Noem said, “We also need to repeal the job-killing health care law.”

She concluded that “Hard work lies ahead, but those of us in this new class of representatives have come face to face with the people’s frustration and we are committed to making sure Washington humbles itself and starts making good decisions.”
