Democratic Senator Dick Durbin from Illinois calls for bipartisan support for spending cuts and tax reforms in Congress to avoid the impending fiscal cliff.
“It would be a disaster,” Durbin says. “If you take a look at everything that’s going to happen at the end of the year, it’s going to affect everyone, not just the wealthiest. It will affect every family. The reason we set up this cliff or steep slope is to force Congress to act [and] to come together on a bipartisan basis."
