Rally against Republican "fiscal cliff" vote staged for Monday

The Cobb County Democratic Committee will be holding a rally January 14 at 1:00 p.m outside the office of Congressman Phil Gingrey (Ga. District 11 - R), 219 Roswell Street, Marietta, Ga. to protest against the "fiscal cliff" vote.
"We're now more than a week post all the 'fiscal cliff' discussions and as you know, none of our Republican Reps voted in favor of the bill," said Melissa Pike, chairwoman of the Committee.  "We're really focusing on all of the Reps who didn't support the bill," Pike said.
Gingrey believes that the government's money problems stem from too much spending and that the "fiscal cliff" can be averted "without raising taxes."

"President Obama and Democrats have added trillions to our national debt with no signs of stopping. They’ve offered no specifics on spending cuts or entitlement reform, which must be part of any fiscal cliff deal," Gingrey said. Gingrey, a former OBGYN, has gained recent news attention for making controversial comments on rape and abortion.  
In the House, 172 Democrats were joined by 85 Republicans in supporting the"fiscal cliff" measure, while 151 Republicans voted against the bill.
