Rigell: ‘I’m Advocating for an Agreement That’s Simultaneous’

Rep. Scott Rigell (R., Va.) expressed support Tuesday on Fox News for House Speaker John Boehner’s budget offer to avoid the fiscal cliff, which includes spending reductions and a ‘modest level of income’ included in an overall agreement.

“I’m advocating for an agreement that’s simultaneous,” Rigell said. “That means reducing federal spending and also having revenues rise a bit. When it comes down to asking exactly what I’d vote on, I really need to reserve judgment on that because I need to see what the total agreement is. What are we doing, for example, with respect to the debt limit? It would be a great concern of mine if the debt limit is incorporated into this agreement.”
