Lindsey Graham on President Obama, fiscal cliff ‘He won’

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) used his “Fox News Sunday” appearance to congratulate President Barack Obama on his impending victory in the so-called fiscal cliff negotiations, predicting that tax rates will go up on people making more than $400,000 or $500,000 as a result of the coming Senate deal.

“Hats off to the president. He won,” Graham said. “What have we accomplished? Political victory for the president. Hats off to the president. He stood his ground. He’s going to get tax rate increases, maybe not at [$]250[,000], but on upper-income Americans. And the sad news for the country is we’ve accomplished very little in not becoming Greece or getting out of debt. This bill won’t affect the debt situation.”

Graham called the chances of a quick fiscal cliff deal “exceedingly good.”

“I want to vote for it even though I won’t like it,” he said.
