Price Votes Against Fiscal Cliff Deal

Like many Republicans, the East Cobb-area Congressman did not agree with the compromise.

Conservative Rep. Tom Price (R-District 6) voted against the last-minute fiscal cliff deal passed by Congress over New Year's, according to govtrack.us.

A real solution includes both revenue increases and spending reductions," Price recently said on CNN's "State of the Union." His district includes East Cobb.

Price isn't the only member of Congress - especially among the GOP - to believe the compromise was ill-fitted to the need and will only lead to more hard decisions soon.

The deal raises taxes on individual incomes over $400,000 and over $450,00 for household incomes and a portion of estates more than $5 million. The compromise is said to allow Congress to have more time to work on government spending.

When Tom votes "No" and wins, like last years debt ceiling disaster, my 401K goes down. When Tom votes "No" and loses, like the fiscal cliff fiasco he created, my 401K goes up. Keep voting "No" Tom and for the sake of the country, don't win.
