Obama tax deal clears House with Meek and Wasserman Schultz voting in favor

The tax deal that President Barack Obama is expected to sign as early as today cleared the House late Thursday with Florida's congressional delegation all over the map.

Most of the state's Republicans, including Lincoln and Mario Diaz-Balart and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen voted yes, as did Kendrick Meek, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Ron Klein.

Opposed: just two Republicans, Gus Bilirakis and Connie Mack. And Democrats Corrine Brown, Alcee Hastings, Allen Boyd and Alan Grayson.
