READ: Sen. Jon Kyl Statement On His Leaving Deficit Reduction Talks

A couple of months ago, Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ), the Minority Whip, was named to represent Senate Republicans at deficit reduction talks headed by Vice President Joe Biden.  Today, Kyl and House GOP Rep. Eric Cantor left the talks.  Here is the statement that Kyl has made (along with Minority Leader Mitch McConnell):

“The White House and Democrats are insisting on job-killing tax hikes and new spending. That proposal won’t address our fiscal crisis, our jobs crisis, or protect and reform entitlements. And a bill with new spending and higher taxes would fail with bipartisan opposition – as it should. President Obama needs to decide between his goal of higher taxes, or a bipartisan plan to address our deficit. He can’t have both. But we need to hear from him.”
