ZEELAND, MI (WHTC) - Capitol Hill is quiet this week, as Congress members are back in their districts and states, explaining to constituents why they voted for or against the Fiscal Cliff compromise bill that prevented steep tax hikes and massive spending cuts. Zeeland Republican Bill Huizenga, one of the no votes in the House, said that a lack of trust in Washington still very evident, despite the last-minute agreement, and that the deep, long-standing, philosophical differences between the parties over the role of government is a daunting roadblock towards a bipartisan solution to the situation. In his weekly interview with WHTC News, Huizenga added that he doesn’t believe that there will be that much of a backlash in the GOP ranks by Tea Party advocates that some observers felt was evident in the narrow reelection of House Speaker John Boehner.
