  • 1: S.Amdt. 4328 to S.Con.Res. 70 - Deficit-neutral reserve fund for Social Security reformYea

    Key Vote 1: S.Amdt. 4328 to S.Con.Res. 70 - Deficit-neutral reserve fund for Social Security reform

    This would provide for a deficit-neutral reserve fund for Social Security reform. Social Security is unsustainable in its current form and this amendment would be a welcome reform.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 2: On the Motion: S.Amdt. 4347 to S.Con.Res. 70 - Earmark MoratoriumYea

    Key Vote 2: On the Motion: S.Amdt. 4347 to S.Con.Res. 70 - Earmark Moratorium

    This would put a moratorium on earmarks. Earmarks are spending projects which will add to the deficit and are unnecessary.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 3: On the Motion to Table: S.Amdt. 4388 to H.R. 3221 - The Durbin AmendmentYea

    Key Vote 3: On the Motion to Table: S.Amdt. 4388 to H.R. 3221 - The Durbin Amendment

    This amendment would increase government involvement in the lending and housing markets, rewarding the irresponsible decision makers while punishing those not involved. There is plenty to reform in the housing market, but this is not the way to do it.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 4: S.Amdt. 4538 to H.R. 1195 - Coconut Road Investigation Yea

    Key Vote 4: S.Amdt. 4538 to H.R. 1195 - Coconut Road Investigation

    To create a bipartisan, bicameral special committee to investigate the insertion of an earmark for Coconut Road into a 2005 highway bill. This is one step in reforming earmark abuse.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 5: S.Amdt. 4719 to S. 2284 - Hurricane insurance programNay

    Key Vote 5: S.Amdt. 4719 to S. 2284 - Hurricane insurance program

    This amendment would create a new hurricane insurance program that would crowd out private insurance coverage and leading to increased costs and higher government spending.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 6: On Cloture on Motion to Proceed: H.R. 980 - Public Safety Employer-Employee Cooperation Act of 2007Nay

    Key Vote 6: On Cloture on Motion to Proceed: H.R. 980 - Public Safety Employer-Employee Cooperation Act of 2007

    This bill would give exclusive bargaining controls to inefficient labor unions over public safety employers. It would thus create a union-run monopoly over all public safety employees and would force local governments to cooperate.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 7: On Cloture on Motion to Proceed: S. 3036 - Climate Security Act (Cap-and-Trade)Nay

    Key Vote 7: On Cloture on Motion to Proceed: S. 3036 - Climate Security Act (Cap-and-Trade)

    The Act, which proposes to curb greenhouse gases, would significantly hamstring the economy of the United States by burdening taxpayers and risking thousands of jobs as our global competitiveness vanishes under a flood of regulations, taxes, and higher costs.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 8: On Overriding the Presidential Veto: H.R. 6124 - Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008Yea

    Key Vote 8: On Overriding the Presidential Veto: H.R. 6124 - Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008

    This bill, and farm subsidies generally, benefit politically connected farm corporations and agriculture industry lobbyists through inefficient price hikes and market restrictions. These market-distorting policies mostly benefit those who engage in cronyism, while making it impossible for small, family-owned farms and businesses to compete. The costs of these market distortions then get passed on to consumers in the form of higher prices.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 9: On Agreeing to the Amendment to H.R. 3221 - The Housing and Economic Recovery ActDid Not Vote

    Key Vote 9: On Agreeing to the Amendment to H.R. 3221 - The Housing and Economic Recovery Act

    This is the final vote on the bill that provided a massive (up to $300 billion) bailout to the "Government Sponsored Entities" Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. These two GSEs were in danger of bankruptcy because of their irresponsibly loose lending practices, and they should have been allowed to go bankrupt instead of putting taxpayers on the hook for their misbehavior. In addition, the bill contains an $800 billion increase in the debt ceiling.

    "Nay" votes scored. Double Score
  • 10: On Cloture on the Motion to Proceed to Consider: S. 3297 - Advancing America's Priorities ActDid Not Vote

    Key Vote 10: On Cloture on the Motion to Proceed to Consider: S. 3297 - Advancing America's Priorities Act

    FreedomWorks opposes this omnibus spending bill because it greatly increases the government's already out-of-control spending. The omnibus is also loaded loads of unnecessary and wasteful earmarks.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 11: On Passage as Amended: H.R. 6049 - Energy Improvement and Extension Act of 2008 Yea

    Key Vote 11: On Passage as Amended: H.R. 6049 - Energy Improvement and Extension Act of 2008

    This bill would introduce over 30 new provisions to the tax code that would increase taxes by nearly $2 billion. Congress should not be using the tax code as a way to pick winners and losers in the economy by creating lobbyist-influenced loopholes and deductions, nor should it be raising taxes on the American people, particularly in a time of economic turbulence.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 12: On Passage as Amended: H.R. 1424 - Emergency Economic Stabilization Act (T.A.R.P)Nay

    Key Vote 12: On Passage as Amended: H.R. 1424 - Emergency Economic Stabilization Act (T.A.R.P)

    This bill would provide a $700 billion taxpayer-funded bailout of the financial industry. Institutions which make risky loans should be allowed to suffer the consequences of those loans. Bailing them out creates the moral hazard that these banks and lenders know that will not have to suffer the long-term consequences of their bad decision if they merely become "too big to fail".

    "Nay" votes scored. Double Score
