List Of 85 House Republicans That Betrayed Their Constituents With Fiscal Cliff Vote

By Susan Duclos

[Update] Followup post with links and direct quotes from these GOP House members below which are in direct contrast to their vote for the fiscal cliff deal.

The Senate generated fiscal cliff deal passed the House of Representatives with a vote of 257/167 and 8 list as not voting. 85 Republican House members joined with all but 16 Democrats to raises taxes on 77 percent of Americans and increase the federal deficit by nearly $4 trillion over the next decade.

More on that here and here.

H/T The Blaze, below is an embedded list of the 85 House Republicans that voted for ne of the largest tax hikes on Americans.

Kudos to Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) who were part of the 151 House Republicans to vote against the bill. Shame on Speaker John Boehner for joining the 85 Republicans and almost all the Democrats to pass the pill.
