Congressman-Elect Andy Barr

LEXINGTON, Ky. - As a Congressman-elect, Republican Andy Barr has no say in what’s being discussed on Capitol Hill regarding the so-called fiscal cliff, but he told a group of business leaders in Lexington Monday how he would like to see the matter resolved. 

“Fiscal responsibility means real spending cuts now and revenues through economic growth…not higher taxes.” 

Barr was the guest speaker at the Commerce Lexington Public Policy Luncheon.  He also called President Obama’s proposal to raise the tax rates on high income earners “math that doesn’t add up.”
