Find Out How Your Reps Voted

With fiscal cliff “deal” done there are a lot of people who are feel, well, screwed over by their “representatives” in the 112th Congress. I happen to be one of those, so it seems like a good idea to me to find out who voted which way.

In my home state, Mississippi, all three members of the house voted no, including my rep. Alan Nunnlee. My senator Roger Wicker did not vote no.

In the Senate the deal went through with overwhelming majority 89-8. Here are the eight, Michael Bennet (D-CO), Tom Carper (D-DE), Charles Grassley (R-IA), Tom Harkin (D-IA), Mike Lee (R-UT), Rand Paul (R-KY), Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Richard Shelby (R-AL)

There were three who didn’t vote, Jim DeMint (R-SC), Mark Kirk (R-IL), and Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ).

Here is the list of reps in the house who voted nay.

Now I’m glad that they did do something about the “cliff” but for every $41 in tax increases we are getting $1 of spending cuts with this deal. If we don’t cut spending in Washington it won’t matter how high taxes are raised. Sure I’m glad there won’t be any extra thievery from my check next week but its the spending that is threatening our sovereignty as a nation. The debtor is, and always will be, slave to the lender, and right now we are deeeeep in debt to China, and China isn’t exactly a friend.

All I know is that I won’t forget Roger Wicker when his name comes back on the ticket. He has a lot of splaynin’ to do.
