Cantor Joins Majority of GOP to Vote No; Boehner with the Minority

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was one of 151 Republicans to vote against the so-called Cliff Deal, while Speaker John Boehner was one of 85 Republicans to vote in favor of the bill. Paul Ryan was one of the 85.

Overall, the bill passed 257-167.

Among the Democrats, only 16 of them voted against the Deal which hikes spending by $330 billion over the next decade above the $1.9 trillion that was already expected. It hikes tax by $620 billion above the $315 billion in new tax pushed into Obamacare, and it increases the debt by $4 trillion above the $2 trillion already expected.

The House votes Thursday who will be Speaker in the next Congress.
