  • 1: S.Amdt.13 to S. 223 - To repeal the job-killing health care lawYea

    Key Vote 1: S.Amdt.13 to S. 223 - To repeal the job-killing health care law

    This amendment would fully repeal President Obama’s “Affordable Care Act” because it will kill jobs, bankrupt the government, drive up everyone's health insurance costs, put bureaucrats in charge of our health care, and ruin the world's best health care system. This vote was on waiving a point of order against the amendment. The vote failed, killing the amendment.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 2: On the Motion to Table: S.Amdt 19 - To limit the application of Davis-Bacon Act Nay

    Key Vote 2: On the Motion to Table: S.Amdt 19 - To limit the application of Davis-Bacon Act

    This amendment would ensure that none of the funds made available under this Act may be used to administer or enforce the wage-rate requirements of the Davis-Bacon Act. Davis-Bacon is a leftover from the New Deal era which costs taxpayers billions of dollars each year because it requires government contractors to pay "local prevailing wages" for every project, which usually leads to expensive union labor receiving the contracts.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 3: On the Motion to Table: S.Amdt. 4 To repeal the essential air service program. Nay

    Key Vote 3: On the Motion to Table: S.Amdt. 4 To repeal the essential air service program.

    This amendment to S.223 would eliminate the Essential Air Service (EAS). The EAS was created in the 1970’s to help a small number of rural communities retain access to air service after airline deregulation. The needless program has continued for 23 years while costing taxpayers $200 million every year.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 4: S.Amdt. 183 to S. 493 - Energy Tax Prevention Act Yea

    Key Vote 4: S.Amdt. 183 to S. 493 - Energy Tax Prevention Act

    This amendment would completely strip the EPA of its ability to use the Clean Air Act to regulate greenhouse gases. The EPA has continually abused its authority under the Clean Air Act to promulgate ever more restrictive regulations on emissions, including designating carbon dioxide to be a “public danger”.

    "Yea" votes scored.
