The group showed U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall a banner signed by Gwinnett citizens concerned about cutbacks should Congress not be able to reach an agreement. Watch the video of the group presenting the 35-foot petition to Woodall's office.
With the clock ticking in Washington, protestors held a rally in Gwinnett asking Congress to reach a deal before drastic cuts--referred to "sequestering"--go into effect March 1. The group Georgia Fair Share gathered outside the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center in Lawrenceville on Thursday morning holding up a 35-foot banner. The banner was made up of dozens of pages of signatures from concerned Gwinnett citizens. They then rolled up the banner, walked to Congressman Rob Woodall's office and delivered the petition to his office. Georgia Fair Share is asking Woodall and Congress to prevent the sequester by closing corporate tax loopholes and ending outdated subsidies. “Congress has an opportunity to stop budget cuts that will …

Jason Pfeifle, field organizer for Georgia Fair Share, responds to Rep. Rob Woodall's statement on the fiscal cliff deal.
Friday, January 4
From Snellville Patch (Editor's note: The following is a letter to the editor sent by Jason Pfeifle, field organizer for Georgia Fair Share.) Congress, without the help of Representative Rob Woodall, finally came together to protect the middle class. On Tuesday, Congress passed a bipartisan compromise that extends much needed tax cuts for middle class Georgians and local small businesses. Unfortunately, Representative Rob Woodall, who represents a large number of local Georgians, voted, in effect, for a $2,200 tax hike on middle class families in the midst of a slow economic recovery. By taking money out of the pockets of middle class families, this kind of tax increase would have threatened to derail the progress our state has made since…

U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall issued the statement after the House of Representatives passed the bill.
Wednesday, January 2
U.S. Representative Rob Woodall (R-GA-07) issued the following statement after the House passed H.R. 8, a bill to address the so-called “fiscal cliff.” Rep. Woodall voted for the original proposal in August but voted against the bill as amended by the Senate on Monday, Jan. 1. The Senate’s bill is all dessert and no vegetables. It puts into permanent law the campaign promise on which President Obama ran: ‘You can have all the government that you desire and you won’t be asked to pay even a penny for it.’ That promise is destroying America, and I will fight it with every fiber of my being. Spending is the problem in Washington, not tax revenue. Yet the Senate's bill does nothing to curtail spending. In fact, it both eliminates …

Rep. Rob Woodal said he "will not be complicit in kicking the can down the road."
(Editor's note: the following was sent by Rep. Rob Woodall (R) as a letter to the editor to Snellville Patch.) If you've turned on a television or opened a newspaper in the last few weeks, you've no doubt seen the so-called "fiscal cliff" conversation unfolding in Washington. The "fiscal cliff" is Washington-speak for the expiration of Bush-era tax rates coupled with across-the-board spending cuts on many domestic spending accounts. While the fiscal cliff coverage continues to escalate as the January deadline draws near, I can tell you these discussions are absolutely nothing new. They are a continuation of every discussion that the House and the President have had during my two years in Congress: the President wants to see taxes go up…

A large, and mostly supportive, crowd turned out for Tuesday's town hall meeting in Lawrenceville with U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall of Georgia's Seventh District.
U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall (R-Lawrenceville), who represents Georgia’s Seventh District, spoke to a largely supportive crowd at a town hall meeting in Lawrenceville Tuesday, telling attendees the new way of imposing tax is through regulation (see video clip). He said although no regulations have come before Congress during his seven months in office, 600 new government regulations were either finalized or proposed during the month of July alone. Woodall defended his vote on raising the debt ceiling, saying it reduced the size and scope of government and, for the first time in American history, it was linked to dollar-for-dollar spending cuts. He reiterated his support for the Cut, Cap and Balance Bill that the House of Representatives passed, …
