U.S. Rep. Peter J. Visclosky, D-Merrillville, released the following statement regarding the breakdown in negotiations over a remedy for impending spending cuts and tax increases.

“I am appalled and angry that Congress could not make discrete decisions to bring our fiscal house in order. Tonight’s deadline has been pending for more than a year, and I have continually worked to encourage my colleagues in both parties to take thoughtful and comprehensive action on the issues before us. Congress has abdicated its responsibility to provide certainty to all American families and businesses.”
