It's "all dessert and no vegetables."
Wednesday, January 2
U.S. Representative Rob Woodall (R-GA-07) issued the following statement after the House passed H.R. 8, a bill to address the so-called “fiscal cliff.” Rep. Woodall voted for the original proposal in August but voted against the bill as amended by the Senate on Monday, Jan. 1. The Senate’s bill is all dessert and no vegetables. It puts into permanent law the campaign promise on which President Obama ran: ‘You can have all the government that you desire and you won’t be asked to pay even a penny for it.’ That promise is destroying America, and I will fight it with every fiber of my being.

Rep. Woodall discusses his thoughts on the fiscal cliff in this letter to the editor.
(Editor's note: the following was sent by Rep. Rob Woodall (R) as a letter to the editor to Snellville Patch.) If you've turned on a television or opened a newspaper in the last few weeks, you've no doubt seen the so-called "fiscal cliff" conversation unfolding in Washington. The "fiscal cliff" is Washington-speak for the expiration of Bush-era tax rates coupled with across-the-board spending cuts on many domestic spending accounts. While the fiscal cliff coverage continues to escalate as the January deadline draws near, I can tell you these discussions are absolutely nothing new. They are a continuation of every discussion that the House and the President have had during my two years in Congress: the President wants to see taxes go up…
