Boehner Reelected; Massie Votes Against

Rep. John Boehner has just been reelected House Majority Leader, but not unanimously.  Nine Republicans did not vote for him, including newly-sworn in Rep. Thomas Massie from Kentucky's 4th Congressional District.  Massie voted for Rep. Justin Amish  (R-MI).

The lack of unanimity for Boehner is fall-out for the Fiscal Cliff deal and the fact that it raised taxes on the so-called rich but failed to achieve any spending cuts at present.
