Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, who along with McCarthy and Cantor make up the so-called Young Guns was also expected to break with Boehner prior to the vote, but at the last minute he apparently changed his mind and voted for passage, a Republican source said.
Following the vote, Ryan told Buzzfeed, When you like something, you vote for it. I wasnt afraid. He said he thought the deal reflected conservative values.
In a statement released by his office later, Ryan was more forceful in defense of his vote, noting that while he had concerns “Will the American people be better off if this law passes relative to the alternative? In the final analysis, the answer is undoubtedly yes. I came to Congress to make tough decisionsnot to run away from them.”
yes votes for fiscal cliff
Since these are all Republicans, I don’t think the Dems or the OFM (Obama-fellating media) will object if we put targets/gun sights over their photos.

Toss Platts of Pennsylvania is already gone. He did not run for re-election, and so this vote was his last gasp as a Republican Congressman.
85 were proud enough to say “Hey look over here, I’m a chicken s#$T, A$$ kissing, bleeping liberal posing as a republican.”
You should include ALL of the GOP members of the U.S. Senate who need to have primary opponents, too!
