EDITORIAL: Congress does right thing in cliff vote

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette —

Before the vote, Hanna rejected the obstructionism that has bedeviled this Congress.

“I have long said that compromise is not treason.”

Hanna added in a news release after the vote: “I am pleased that the fiscal cliff has been resolved in a bipartisan manner. This deal was not perfect. There are parts of it with which I don’t agree. But the responsibility of governing requires compromise for the benefit of constituents and country and this vote embodied that notion.”

It did, indeed. We can only hope the rest of Congress gets that message before the next fiscal crisis threatens our country.
