This week’s votes to keep income tax rates from rising for most Americans split the House delegations in Washington and Idaho, but unified the two state’s senators behind the last-minute deal.
Two Washington Democrats in the House voted against the tax changes, while the state’s three other Democrats and all four Republicans voted yes.
Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., said Wednesday her vote was a close call that came down on the side of tax cuts: “My vote last night was to reduce taxes for as many Americans as possible.”
Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers has been getting plenty of face time on the TV news networks as the House GOP's spokeswoman on its counter to President Obama on the fiscal cliff negotiations.
It has prompted criticism from some liberal blogs that she only sticks to the talking points and won't answer questions about things like spending cuts with any substance.
