Legislator Score / Vote

2005: 109th Congress N/A

Rep. Cox has not been scored for 2005 because he was appointed as Chairman of the SEC in August.

  • 1: S. 5 - Class Action Fairness Act of 2005Yea

    Key Vote 1: S. 5 - Class Action Fairness Act of 2005

    S. 5 is a major step towards stopping lawsuit abuse by limiting venue shopping by trial lawyers. Unscrupulous attorneys often bring cases to a handful of state ‘tort hellholes’ where judges and juries consistently produce unreasonable awards with national economic impact. This new legislation would move the largest cases to federal courts, where judges are better equipped to consider the national scope of each case.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 2: H.R. 3 - Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for UsersYea

    Key Vote 2: H.R. 3 - Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users

    This is a $295 billion transportation bill which is more than $11 billion larger than the agreed upon allotment for transportation. In addition, it contains literally thousands of wasteful earmarks.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 3: H.Amdt. 65 to H.Con.Res. 95 - Amendment to substitute legislation with budget cutsYea

    Key Vote 3: H.Amdt. 65 to H.Con.Res. 95 - Amendment to substitute legislation with budget cuts

    The amendment would reduces spending by 2% compared to last year's level (the Budget Committee calls for a .7% reduction), which is over $5.1 billion more in first-year savings than the Committee's bill. It includes reconciliation instructions reducing the rate of growth of mandatory spending from 6.4% to 6.1%.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 4: H.R. 8 - Death Tax Repeal Permanency ActYea

    Key Vote 4: H.R. 8 - Death Tax Repeal Permanency Act

    This bill would make the repeal of the death tax permanent. The death tax is a massive double tax on business capital vital to increased productivity and job creation.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 5: H.J.Res. 27 - Withdrawing approval of the United States from the Agreement establishing the World Trade OrganizationDid Not Vote

    Key Vote 5: H.J.Res. 27 - Withdrawing approval of the United States from the Agreement establishing the World Trade Organization

    This resolution would have rejected American membership in the World Trade Organization, threatening international free trade. Free trade is beneficial to the productivity of all nations.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 6: H.R. 22 - Postal Accountability and Enhancement ActYea

    Key Vote 6: H.R. 22 - Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act

    This bill fails to bring the market discipline the postal system needs and acts as yet another taxpayer bailout of the Postal Service. The US Postal Service desperately needs reform, but H.R. 22 is not reform.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 7: H.R. 3045 - Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement Implementation ActYea

    Key Vote 7: H.R. 3045 - Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act

    This would ratify the Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement. Free trade opens the economy to new and cheaper goods.

    "Yea" votes scored.
