McCaskill: No raises for Congress best reason to vote for fiscal cliff bill

The fiscal cliff compromise passed the Senate by an 89-8 margin moments ago with Missouri Senators Claire McCaskill and Roy Blunt each voting in favor of it.

It goes to the House later today.

One part of the bill met with Sen. McCaskill's enthusiastic approval. She tweeted, "Good news. In deal we will STOP any pay increase for Congress. Thank goodness. Good reason to vote for it."
