  • 16: On Cloture: S. 1243 - Depts. of Transportation, Housing & Urban Development Appropriations (T-HUD)Nay

    Key Vote 16: On Cloture: S. 1243 - Depts. of Transportation, Housing & Urban Development Appropriations (T-HUD)

    This bill would fund the Departments of Transportation and Housing & Urban Development (and related agencies) for Fiscal Year 2014. Besides doing nothing to reform the large amount of wasteful spending contained in both departments to begin with, this bill actually increases spending for the departments to pre-sequestration levels. This is part of the broader Democratic strategy to eliminate the only real spending cuts that have been achieved since 2010.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 18: On Cloture: H.J.Res. 59 - Continuing Appropriations Resolution to Fund the Federal GovernmentYea

    Key Vote 18: On Cloture: H.J.Res. 59 - Continuing Appropriations Resolution to Fund the Federal Government

    This is the crucial vote to end debate on the Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund the federal government while ending funding for ObamaCare. Voting for cloture would allow Senate Democrats to resume funding ObamaCare with a straight party-line vote, meaning that a 'yea' vote here is a vote to fund ObamaCare, with the law's first starting date just days away.

  • 19: On Cloture: H.R. 2775 - Continuing Appropriations Act, 2014 Yea

    Key Vote 19: On Cloture: H.R. 2775 - Continuing Appropriations Act, 2014

    H.R. 2775 was used as the vehicle for the Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund the federal government. This bill funds the government fully (including ObamaCare) through January 15th of 2014, suspends the debt ceiling until February of 2014, and obliges both chambers of Congress to go to conference on a full-year budget. In other words, this CR allows for more uncontrolled spending and debt, with no reforms to either, does nothing to address ObamaCare, and potentially promises more future spending if a budget agreement is reached.

    "Nay" votes scored.
