Politico: Kentucky Rep. Earning Reputation as Someone Willing to Say "No"

The newest member of Kentucky's congressional delegation is fast becoming known as someone who is willing to vote "no"--including against measures favored by his own party.

According to Politico, Rep. Thomas Massie has voted against the fiscal cliff deal negotiated between fellow Kentucky Republican Mitch McConnell and the White House, the National Defense Authorization Act, and all bills aimed at providing aid for those impacted by Hurricane Sandy in the northeast.

Massie is a 42-year-old M.I.T. graduate who easily won November's election to fill the vacant Fourth District U.S. House seat, which covers a stretch of northern and northeastern Kentucky.
