Congressman Price Votes Against Fiscal Cliff Deal

Like many Republicans, Price 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."

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.

Rep. Price needs to understand that his job is to represent his entire district - and that he was sent to Washington to assist all of the nation - and sometimes that means letting ideology take a back seat to common sense and the better good. The Georgia Senatorial delegation understood that. It's time either Dr. Price understands, or comes home.
