2007: 110th Congress N/A

Rep. Jo Ann Davis has not been scored for 2007 because she died in October.

  • 1: H.R. 2 - Fair Minimum Wage ActYea

    Key Vote 1: H.R. 2 - Fair Minimum Wage Act

    The Fair Minimum Wage Act would allow for an increase in the minimum wage from $5.15 per hour to $7.25 per hour over two years. According to CBO estimates, a minimum wage increase would saddle small businesses with up to $7 billion in added costs.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 2: H.R. 800 - The Employee Free Choice ActDid Not Vote

    Key Vote 2: H.R. 800 - The Employee Free Choice Act

    This is the "Card Check Bill," which will make it easier for unions to unionize workers in the private sector. It will eliminate most of the secrecy in union balloting, allowing union intimidation of workers.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 3: H.R. 1257 - Shareholder Vote on Executive Compensation ActDid Not Vote

    Key Vote 3: H.R. 1257 - Shareholder Vote on Executive Compensation Act

    This bill would amend the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 to force shareholder review of executive compensation, which would open the door for increased federal intrusion into the private sector. Although transparency in executive compensation is necessary, many shareholders already have this privilege under their company’s bylaws.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 4: On Motion to Pass: H.R. 1252 - Federal Price Gouging Prevention ActYea

    Key Vote 4: On Motion to Pass: H.R. 1252 - Federal Price Gouging Prevention Act

    This legislation would make it a federal crime to sell crude oil, gas, natural gas or petroleum at a price that is “unconscionably excessive” or “takes unfair advantage” of unordinary market conditions. This legislation mandates severe fines for any violations including market manipulation, false price reporting and unconscionable prices.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 5: H.R. 3043 - Making appropriations for the Department of Labor, Health and Human Services, and EducationDid Not Vote

    Key Vote 5: H.R. 3043 - Making appropriations for the Department of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education

    This $607 million spending bill will end up costing $152 million in 2008 thus exceeding the president’s budget by more than $10 million. In addition, it would spend $7 million more than the current levels and more than $2.3 million more than the Senate version. In addition to exceeding the budget, this bill is also loaded with pork projects and represents the out of control spending going on in Congress.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 6: H.R. 3162 - Children’s Health and Medicare Protection Act of 2007Did Not Vote

    Key Vote 6: H.R. 3162 - Children’s Health and Medicare Protection Act of 2007

    Funded by a $0.45 increase in the federal cigarette excise tax and a nearly 200% raise in taxes on cigars, the SCHIP reauthorization proposal calls for up to $50 billion in new funds for the program, dwarfing the President’s current request of $5 billion over 5 years. In addition to greatly expanding a program that was originally designed to be a limited contribution to State health services, this bill would be a giant step toward government controlled health care.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 7: On Agreeing to the Conference Report: H.R. 2272 - 21st Century Competitiveness ActDid Not Vote

    Key Vote 7: On Agreeing to the Conference Report: H.R. 2272 - 21st Century Competitiveness Act

    This bill would authorize over $43 billion over 3 years to fund at least 40 new federal programs for various agencies including the National Science Foundation, National Institute of Science and Technology, and the Departments of Commerce, Education and Energy. The size and scope of the funding that emerged from the conference report drastically exceeds the original House version where $23 billion was allocated for 20 new programs. It not only represents the reckless spending that has come to characterize Congress, but also is a drastic and irresponsible expansion of the size of government.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 8: H.Amdt. 749 to H.R. 3221 - Udall/Plats Renewable Energy Standard AmendmentDid Not Vote

    Key Vote 8: H.Amdt. 749 to H.R. 3221 - Udall/Plats Renewable Energy Standard Amendment

    This amendment to the “New Direction for Energy Independence, National Security, and Consumer Protection Act” would create a mandate requiring the use of renewable portfolio standard for generating electricity starting in 2010 with the goal of forcing electric utilities to produce 20 percent of their energy from renewable sources by 2020. Energy providers who did not comply would be penalized by being forced to purchase renewable energy from other generators in the form of utility credits or pay the difference to the federal government.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 9: H.R. 2776 - Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation Tax Act of 2007Did Not Vote

    Key Vote 9: H.R. 2776 - Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation Tax Act of 2007

    The bill would hit our energy suppliers with billions of dollars in new taxes. New taxes on oil and its providers will only lead to increased cost of production which will be passed onto consumers in the form of higher prices on gas, natural gas and electric utilities. Even though alternative energy holds promise for the future, federal mandates and taxes will not make the technology viable any faster. All that this bill will do is increase taxes and the price of fuel for the consumer.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 10: Agree to Senate Amendments: H.R. 976 - Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization ActDid Not Vote

    Key Vote 10: Agree to Senate Amendments: H.R. 976 - Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act

    This legislation calls for spending $33 billion over the next five years to expand coverage of the S-CHIP program. S-CHIP would be a massive increase in health care entitlements, and only exacerbates the underlying problem of increasing health care costs and reliance upon third-party payers in health care. It will also cost tens of billions of dollars at a time when the government is already incurring massive, unsustainable deficits. The bill, as passed, would vastly expand government controlled health care coverage to cover individuals up to 300% above the poverty line.

    "Nay" votes scored.
