Did we deal with the spending problem or just avert it.  The House okays fiscal cliff bill.  It is now headed to President Obama.   At roll call, 85 Republicans and 172 Democrats voted YEA; 151 Republicans and 16 Democrats voted NO.  The following representatives in NJ voted YEA for the bill and Jon Runyan (NJ D3) said this, Given the choices on the table, I ultimately decided to support the compromise to spare my constituents and 99% of American taxpayers an income tax hike that neither they nor our economy can afford. Unfortunately, this legislation is merely another Washington-generated band-aid that does little more than kick the can down the road again, while failing to address the federal government’s unhealthy addiction to spending. I am hopeful the President and members of both the House and Senate can do more problem-solving and less finger-pointing in the next Congress and address the very serious fiscal problems we face.” Other yeas in NJ were  Representaives Chris Smith, Rodney Frelinghuysen,Frank LoBiondo, and Leonard Lance. Scott Garret vored no.  Guest Professor Fernado Uribe http://www.blogtalkradio.com/theuribesociety
