No one will ever say of Congressman Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, what Conservative Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson unleashed on Washington Republican Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers Wednesday: “Rep. McMorris Rodgers' vote is inexplicable and disappointing. Raising taxes on job creators into the teeth of this recession is a recipe for higher unemployment. This vote is sad, and may engender a primary challenge in 2014 - and Rep. McMorris Rodgers will have nobody to blame but herself.” The Washington Republican joined 84 GOP members of the House — including Idaho's Mike Simpson — and 172 House Democrats in rescuing the U.S. economy from the so-called fiscal cliff. She did it by supporting a bill that essentially raised taxes on families making more than $450,000 a year but leaving in place the Bush-era tax rates for an estimated 98 percent of Washington taxpayers and 99 percent of those in Idaho. … But Labrador … voted no/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune.

Question: Why do you think Labrador voted against the “fiscal cliff” bailout?
