Alabama and Georgia House on Fiscal Cliff

All six of Alabama’s representatives in the U.S House voted against the Fiscal Cliff legislation. However, the state’s two democrats voted for the bill.

Second district congresswoman, Martha Roby, said raising taxes without spending cuts goes against her beliefs. She issued a statement today saying, “Washington doesn’t have a taxing problem, it has a spending problem. We have $16 trillion in debt. It’s past time we get serious about this country’s spending problem, and restore fiscal sanity to the budget.”

Meanwhile, all eight of Georgia’s republican representatives voted against the last-minute deal as well. However, the state’s two republican senators voted for the legislation.
