Congressmen Collin Peterson---a democrat...and rick berg--a republican--voted against the so-called "Fscal Cliff bill".
The GOP-run House gave final approval to the measure late Tuesday by 257-167.
The senate approved it, by a wide margin, about 24-hours earlier.
Senators Conrad, Hoeven, Klobuchar and Franken supporting it there.
