Why did Congressman Andy Harris vote against fiscal cliff bill?


Not all lawmakers are satisfied with this new fiscal cliff deal.

Maryland Congressman Andy Harris is one of the Republicans who voted against it.

He released a statement Tuesday night reading in part:

"I opposed this legislation that increases taxes on 77 percent of people in my district." 

Harris went on to say the bill is business as usual in Washington -- doing nothing to deal with the country's $16.4 trillion debt.
