Sen. Mike Lee: Congress should extend the tax cuts, and deficit problems not the fault of American taxpayers

This morning on "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien," Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) tells Soledad that he would vote to extend the Bush-era tax cuts, saying that this is the wrong time to raise taxes on anyone.

"This is not the fault of hard-working American taxpayers," Sen. Lee says. "This is the fault of Congress. This is the fault of Washington, D.C. and it needs to be fixed here and not on the backs of the American people who would pay for this in terms of job losses."

Sen. Lee also talks about the Disclose act.
