  • 1: S.Amdt. 1472 to S.Amdt. 1470 to S. 2038 - To prohibit earmarks. Nay

    Key Vote 1: S.Amdt. 1472 to S.Amdt. 1470 to S. 2038 - To prohibit earmarks.

    Sen. Toomey's amendment to the STOCK Act would eliminate the corrupting practice of earmarks in the Senate.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 2: S.Amdt.1473 to S.Amdt. 1470 to S. 2038 - To prevent the creation of duplicative and overlapping Federal programs.Nay

    Key Vote 2: S.Amdt.1473 to S.Amdt. 1470 to S. 2038 - To prevent the creation of duplicative and overlapping Federal programs.

    Sen. Coburn's amendment to the STOCK Act would prevent duplicative and overlapping government programs.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 3: S.Amdt. 1756 to S. 1813 - To devolve most transportation funding back to the statesNay

    Key Vote 3: S.Amdt. 1756 to S. 1813 - To devolve most transportation funding back to the states

    This amendment to the federal highway spending bill would reduce the federal government’s role in transportation funding by giving states direct control of their shares of the transportation funds.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 4: S.Amdt 1589 to S. 1813 - To terminate certain energy tax subsidies and lower the corporate income tax rateNay

    Key Vote 4: S.Amdt 1589 to S. 1813 - To terminate certain energy tax subsidies and lower the corporate income tax rate

    This amendment would eliminate many energy tax subsidies, which distort the market by picking winners and losers in the energy industry. In addition this amendment would lower the U.S. corporate tax rate, which is currently the highest in the industrialized world and is one of the major reasons that many companies choose to locate their operations elsewhere.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 5: On Cloture: S.Amdt. 1836 to H.R. 3606 - To reauthorize the Export-Import Bank of the United States. Yea

    Key Vote 5: On Cloture: S.Amdt. 1836 to H.R. 3606 - To reauthorize the Export-Import Bank of the United States.

    This amendment would reauthorize the Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im bank), which is scheduled to expire at the end of May. The Export-Import Bank takes money from American taxpayers to subsidize exports by politically powerful American companies. The Ex-Im Bank embodies corporate welfare; it is a prime example of crony capitalism that has hurt economic growth.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 6: S.Amdt. 2025 to S. 1789 - To end the mailbox use monopoly.Nay

    Key Vote 6: S.Amdt. 2025 to S. 1789 - To end the mailbox use monopoly.

    Currently, the inside of your mailbox is legally the property of the U.S. Postal Service. This amendment would end the USPS monopoly on your mailbox, which means that other companies could provide the poorly-run USPS with competition in the delivery of first-class mail.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 7: S.Amdt. 2028 to S. 1789 - To establish a pilot program to test alternative methods for the delivery of postal services. Nay

    Key Vote 7: S.Amdt. 2028 to S. 1789 - To establish a pilot program to test alternative methods for the delivery of postal services.

    This amendment introduced by Sen. Rand Paul would have established a pilot program to allow alternative programs to compete with the U.S. Postal Service on a local level.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 8: On the Motion to Proceed: S.Con.Res. 37 - Setting forth a budget for fiscal year 2013Nay

    Key Vote 8: On the Motion to Proceed: S.Con.Res. 37 - Setting forth a budget for fiscal year 2013

    This is Senator Toomey's 2013 budget plan, which would balance the budget within eight years and save more than $5 trillion over the next ten years. It would also repeal ObamaCare, block grant Medicaid to the states, and cut individual and corporate taxes.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 9: On the Motion to Proceed: S.Con.Res. 42 - Setting forth a budget for fiscal year 2013Nay

    Key Vote 9: On the Motion to Proceed: S.Con.Res. 42 - Setting forth a budget for fiscal year 2013

    This is Senator Rand Paul's budget proposal for fiscal year 2013, which would balance the budget in five year and save over $8 trillion over ten years. This proposal, which closely resembles the one presented by the Tea Party Debt Commission in 2011, would also repeal ObamaCare, block grant Medicaid and other entitlement programs, and reform both Medicare and Social Security. It would also eliminate the Departments of Energy, Education, Housing and Urban Development, and Commerce, repeal Dodd-Frank, expand energy exploration, and privatize the TSA. In short, this is the single boldest and most effective free-market economic proposal to receive a vote in Congress.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 10: On the Motion to Proceed: S.Con.Res. 44 - Setting forth the budget for fiscal year 2013.Nay

    Key Vote 10: On the Motion to Proceed: S.Con.Res. 44 - Setting forth the budget for fiscal year 2013.

    This is Senator Mike Lee's budget proposal for fiscal year 2013, which would balance the budget in five years and would save $7 trillion over ten years. This bill also contains fundamental tax reform, with a single-rate flat tax for corporations and individuals. It also reforms Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid, curbs regulations, and caps spending.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 11: On the Motion to Proceed: S.J.Res. 37 - Disapproving of the EPA's Utility MACT ruleNay

    Key Vote 11: On the Motion to Proceed: S.J.Res. 37 - Disapproving of the EPA's Utility MACT rule

    This resolution would have invoked the Congressional Review Act to stop the implementation of the Environmental Protection Agency's Utility MACT rule. Utility MACT is among the most devastating environmental regulations ever passed, as it would make it nearly impossible for new coal-fired power plants to be built and is already putting existing plants out of business. Making America's cheapest, most abundant energy resource difficult to use will greatly increase energy costs for all Americans, and during an economic downturn when they can least afford it.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 12: S. 3240 - The Agriculture Reform, Food, and Jobs Act (Farm Bill)Yea

    Key Vote 12: S. 3240 - The Agriculture Reform, Food, and Jobs Act (Farm Bill)

    This bill extends the farm subsidy and crop insurance programs, which are among the largest corporate welfare programs in the federal government. These subsidies largely go to well-connected large farm corporations and make it difficult for small family farms to compete in the marketplace. This bill also contains greatly expanded funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, better known as "food stamps". 80 percent of the "farm bill" actually goes towards funding the food stamp program, a widely-abused welfare program which should be voted on as as a standalone bill instead of being hidden in an unrelated bill.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 13: H.R. 8 - American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012Yea

    Key Vote 13: H.R. 8 - American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012

    This bill is the vehicle for the deal brokered by Senator McConnell and Vice President Biden to avert the "fiscal cliff". While it extends the 2001, 2003 and 2009 tax cuts and credits for most Americans, it allows them to expire on those earning over $450,000 per year. The bill also contains a $30 billion extension of unemployment benefits, and reauthorizes the 2008 Farm Bill for nine months. H.R. 8 allows the payroll tax holiday to expire, effectively raising taxes on 77% of taxpayers, yet extends dozens of tax credits and deductions that amount to corporate welfare for special interests. It also fails to extend the Bush-era tax cuts to all Americans, thus raising taxes at a time when economic growth is desperately needed.

    "Nay" votes scored.
