  • 19: On Agreeing to the Hice Amendment to H.R. 6147Yea

    Key Vote 19: On Agreeing to the Hice Amendment to H.R. 6147

    Sponsored by Rep. Jody Hice (R-Ga.), this amendment would ensure that no funds would be available to the Environmental Justice Small Grants made by the Office of Environmental Justice (OEJ). These funds have been misused to fund projects that should be left to state and local leadership, and that are unrelated to the organization’s mission. If enacted, the Hice amendment will save taxpayers $70 million over the next ten years.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 20: On Agreeing to the Palmer-Walker-Meadows Amendment to H.R. 6147Yea

  • 21: On Agreeing to the Meadows Amendment to H.R. 6147Yea

    Key Vote 21: On Agreeing to the Meadows Amendment to H.R. 6147

    Sponsored by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), this amendment would prohibit the use of funds to the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) from being used to administer ObamaCare’s Multi-State Plan (MSP) Program. Section 1334 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires that OPM contract at least two national health insurance plans, one of which is statutorily required to be contracted with a nonprofit entity. The MSP Program was included in ObamaCare when the so-called “public option” proved politically untenable. The MSP Program could be used as a vehicle for a public option.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 22: On Agreeing to the Anti-Carbon Tax ResolutionYea

    Key Vote 22: On Agreeing to the Anti-Carbon Tax Resolution

    Carbon taxes, like all government interventions in the economy, reward certain individuals and industries at the expense of everyone else. Independent studies into the potential impact of such a tax reveal that American families would have to pay higher electricity and fuel costs, and could lead to higher prices in other areas of the economy. This burden would be borne disproportionately by lower and middle income families, those who can least afford to do so.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 23: On Agreeing to the Conference Report to H.R. 6157Nay

    Key Vote 23: On Agreeing to the Conference Report to H.R. 6157

    The Defense, Labor, and Health and Human Services (HHS) minibus, H.R. 6157 spends profligately on programs included in the minibus and includes a short-term continuing resolution (CR) for remaining appropriations bills into fiscal year 2019. This CR is an extension of the excessive spending agreed to under the Bipartisan Budget Act, which was passed by Congress in February and spent nearly $300 billion more than the previously established spending caps meant to control the rate of spending growth. H.R. 6157 is more of the same profligate spending resulting from a broken budget process and members unwilling to stand up for their campaign promises of shrinking government and reducing spending.
