2014: 113th Congress 14%

  • 1: Concurring with Senate Amendments: H.R. 3547 - Omnibus Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2014Yea

    Key Vote 1: Concurring with Senate Amendments: H.R. 3547 - Omnibus Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2014

    This bill funded the federal government for the remainder of fiscal year 2014. It spends $45 billion more than the budget caps established in 2011, and perpetuates a vast amount of wasteful spending from previous years. Lawmakers were also given almost no time to read this 1,500 page spending bill.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 2: On the Conference Report: H.R. 2642 - Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act (Farm Bill)Nay

    Key Vote 2: On the Conference Report: H.R. 2642 - Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act (Farm Bill)

    This final version of the Farm Bill, reconciled between the House and Senate, actually undoes some of the already modest reforms to crop insurance and food stamps that were previously in the bill. This five-year reauthorization of the Farm Bill will spend nearly a trillion dollars over ten years, and remains loaded with corporate welfare and special carve-outs for well-connected agricultural corporations.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 3: On Passage: S. 540 - Temporary Debt Limit Extension ActYea

    Key Vote 3: On Passage: S. 540 - Temporary Debt Limit Extension Act

    This bill suspends the debt limit until March 15th of 2015, allowing the president to potentially run up as much debt as he pleases during that time period. The debt is already projected to increase by about $1 trillion over that period, to over $18 trillion. Meanwhile, this debt ceiling suspension contains no reforms to curb spending whatsoever.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 4: On Passage: H.R. 3865 - Stop Targeting of Political Beliefs by the IRS ActNay

    Key Vote 4: On Passage: H.R. 3865 - Stop Targeting of Political Beliefs by the IRS Act

    This bill would stop the IRS for one year from finalizing a proposed regulation that would stop grassroots non-profit groups from engaging in political free speech. On the heels of the IRS targeting of conservative groups, the regulation that this bill would delay would seemingly finish their job by excluding tea parties and other grassroots groups from any role in the political process.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 5: On Passage: H.R. 3370 - Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability ActYea

    Key Vote 5: On Passage: H.R. 3370 - Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act

    This bill would delay a major reform to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) that would have returned some semblance of market rates to flood insurance premiums. Currently, NFIP is over $25 billion in debt because homeowners in frequently flooded areas do not have to pay an amount that is equal to the risk they incur, meaning that the government takes a loss when the inevitable floods occur. By delaying the scheduled reforms, the NFIP will require a taxpayer bailout for billions of dollars.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 6: On Passage: H.R. 4118 - SIMPLE Fairness Act (One-year Delay of ObamaCare's Individual Mandate)Nay

    Key Vote 6: On Passage: H.R. 4118 - SIMPLE Fairness Act (One-year Delay of ObamaCare's Individual Mandate)

    Delaying Obamacare's unconstitutional individual insurance mandate extends the same exception to the law that was extended to businesses with the delay of the employer mandate. This delay would also prevent Obamacare from taking full effect, and provides an extended window to work on defunding, delaying, or dismantling the entire law.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 7: On Passage: H.R. 3826 - Electricity Security and Affordability ActNay

    Key Vote 7: On Passage: H.R. 3826 - Electricity Security and Affordability Act

    This bill would stop the EPA from imposing proposed regulations that would effectively ban new coal-fired power plants from ever being constructed. It would require the EPA to take into account current achievable technologies from existing plants when setting future emission reductions, stopping them from promulgating impossible regulations that would kill the coal industry.

    "Yea" votes scored.
