House of Representatives vote count for HR 8, Jan 1, 2013

The following is the full Yea votes from the House of Representatives on HR 8 – the fiscal cliff deal. The vote was carried out by the lame duck 112th Congress, a final action before the 113th Congress is sworn in and takes action. The result of this vote, and that of the Senate with the same Bill, is:

  • An increase in taxes for those earning $400,000 or more
  • A resumption of the payroll tax
  • An increase in the estate tax for estates over $5 million
  • An increase in the national debt of $4 trillion over 10 years
  • A 2 month delay in the mandatory $1.2 trillion in spedning cuts for defense and Medicaid – unless a further deal can be worked out
  • A net exchange of $41 of increased taxes for ever $1 of spending reduction
  • Extend credits and incentives for plug-in electric vehicles, biodiesel and other alternative energy initiatives
  • An end to the Community Living Assistance Services and Support program which allowed the elderly and disabled to get in-home care
  • Special expensing rules for certain film and TV productions
  • Extend farm subsidy program, preventing milk prices from essentially doubling
