U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson released a statement Wednesday on the fiscal cliff deal.

The statement read: “It was something we had to do to keep the country from going over the fiscal cliff and to prevent income taxes from going up for more than 95 percent of folks.  Now we’ve got to finish the job of fixing our country’s financial ills with more targeted spending cuts and reforming our tax code.”
