Joe Kyrillos on Government Reform
"We're making all the wrong decisions in Washington, D.C.," he said.
Menendez emphasized his efforts to help the middle class grow and prosper, listing New Jersey's biotechnology and solar industries as areas that he helped to promote.
Both candidates indicated that failing to avoid the impending "fiscal cliff"--a set of large spending cuts and tax increases set to take effect in January unless Congress takes action--would be unacceptable.
Menendez promised Congress would find a way to meet this challenge. "There will be no tax increases on New Jerseyans or Americans in January," he said.
Kyrillos attacked Menendez and the Congress for waiting until the last minute to respond. "I'm not sure he understands what's at stake. I can't believe that they allow the uncertainty to exist out there," Kyrillos said. "Why can't they get their act together?"
