Teena Ray: Time to work together
December 15, 2012
To the editor:
The fiscal cliff presents an opportunity for members of Congress to reach across the partisan divide and create a comprehensive, balanced deficit-reduction plan — an approach that doesn’t force the middle class to bear the brunt of the tough choices and helps strengthen our economy and job-growth again.
In order to reach this budget deal, I agree with my senator, Mark Udall, that we ALL need to set aside our rigid pledges and ultimatums and get to work. Being stubborn has worked for very few people, and has alienated many. We need to work together as Americans, to make America great again.
Compromise is not a dirty word. Let’s get our country back in the black.
