  • 1: On Motion to Concur in the Senate Amendment: H.R. 3762 - Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act of 2015Yea

    Key Vote 1: On Motion to Concur in the Senate Amendment: H.R. 3762 - Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act of 2015

    This bill uses the budget procedure known as "reconciliation" to repeal most of ObamaCare. The greater portion of ObamaCare's worst portions are included in this repeal bill, including its many new taxes, the unconstitutional individual and employer mandates, the expansion of Medicaid, and the insurance premium subsidies. Passing this bill laid out the blueprint for how Congress would achieve full repeal once President Obama leaves the White House.

  • 3: On Passage: H R 5053 Preventing IRS Abuse and Protecting Free Speech ActYea

    Key Vote 3: On Passage: H R 5053 Preventing IRS Abuse and Protecting Free Speech Act

    This legislation is an important step in protecting the First Amendment rights of Americans against harassment and coercion from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Introduced by Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Ill.), this bill stops the IRS from collecting and releasing information about donors to tax-exempt organizations, which would chill political speech. The legislation would protect the free speech of donors to nonprofit organizations by modifying IRS disclosure requirements of information such as donor names and addresses. Under H.R. 5053, tax-exempt organizations are required to report only information on donors who contribute $5,000 or more and who are either an officer of the organization or one of its five highest paid employees.

  • 4: On Agreeing to the Amendment: Amendment 1204 to H R 5293Nay

    Key Vote 4: On Agreeing to the Amendment: Amendment 1204 to H R 5293

    H. Amdt. 1204 offered by Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), to H.R. 5293, to the Department of Defense Appropriations Act 2017, protects the Fourth Amendment rights of Americans from unauthorized searches and seizures of property. The bill in its current form requires the National Security Agency and other intelligence agencies to follow due process and obtain a warrant to collect the communications of American citizens. Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) was written to only allow the government to collect the communications of foreigners, but a large quantity of American communications are bundled in during the process. By prohibiting backdoor spying, this measure represents a step forward in the battle to ensure privacy and security in the face of unconstitutional surveillance. The amendment also prohibits government agencies from requesting that U.S. companies build security vulnerabilities into their hardware or software in order to make it easier for the government to access them

  • 5: On Agreeing to the Amendment: Amendment 1194 to H R 5293Nay

    Key Vote 5: On Agreeing to the Amendment: Amendment 1194 to H R 5293

    H. Amdt. 1194 offered by Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.), to H.R. 5293, to the Department of Defense Appropriations Act 2017, would retain the U.S. military’s current practice of providing cash stipend to recruits, allowing them to pick the footwear of their personal preference. The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), passed by the House and Senate in May, changed current practice regarding footwear by including a “buy American” requirement, replacing the current cash allowance. This new language is a de facto earmark because it benefits one company: New Balance. The Department of Defense has concluded that the new language in the NDAA “would directly lead to a higher recruit injury rate at basic training,” The amendment would undo the New Balance provision, and halt an egregious example of crony capitalism that will cost taxpayers over $300 million and keeps this provision from coming into effect by not backing it.

  • 6: On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass: S 1252 Global Food Security Act of 2016.Nay

    Key Vote 6: On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass: S 1252 Global Food Security Act of 2016.

    S. 1252, the Global Food Security Act of 2016, introduced by Sen. Robert P. Casey, Jr. (D-PA), requires that the president “develop and implement a Global Food Security Strategy to promote global food security, resilience, and nutrition,” according to the summary of the bill. The bill authorizes funds that were previously being spent without authorization and these evidences fail to mitigate the fact that this legislation was passed in the Senate by voice vote without debate in just over a minute. A bill that costs billions of dollars should be subject to more rigorous scrutiny. Voting in an abbreviated procedure that blocks conservative amendments to the bill, and shortens debate under suspension of the rules makes a voice vote on this expensive and dubious legislation probable. The United States is hardly in the position to promote global food security and economic reforms when our federal government is badly failing to promote free market reforms at home that can reduce domestic food insecurity and address our bankrupting level of debt. According to the Congressional Budget Office, this bill “would cost $7.3 billion over the 2017-2021 spending period.”
