  • 10: On Passage: Indirect Auto Lending CRA Resolution of Disapproval, S.J.Res. 57Yea

    Key Vote 10: On Passage: Indirect Auto Lending CRA Resolution of Disapproval, S.J.Res. 57

    The passage of this CRA would do nothing to change the prohibition against discrimination in the Equal Credit Opportunity Act that the guidance cites. It would simply roll back the gross regulatory overreach of the CFPB in claiming for itself -- behind closed doors and a screen of smoke -- a power that Congress, in the law that created the CFPB, explicitly banned the CFPB from having. As Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) said prior to the Senate vote, the CFPB “had to work its magic to find a way to regulate auto dealers.” Good governing is done through accountable and transparent processes, not magic.

  • 11: On Agreeing to the Amendment: Foxx Sugar Modernization Yea

    Key Vote 11: On Agreeing to the Amendment: Foxx Sugar Modernization

    Sponsored by Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.) and a group of nine other bipartisan legislators, this amendment reforms U.S. sugar policy. Raw sugar in the U.S. currently costs 84 percent more than it does on the world market. This is because of almost Soviet levels of government controls placed on the domestic sugar market that limits imports and production. This increases prices on consumers and makes it difficult for candy companies to maintain operations in America. The sugar modernization amendment is a long overdue reversal of this disturbing, protectionist trend.

  • 12: On Agreeing to the Amendment: McClintock Phase Out of Agriculture SubsidiesYea

    Key Vote 12: On Agreeing to the Amendment: McClintock Phase Out of Agriculture Subsidies

    Sponsored by Rep. Tom McClintock, this amendment would phase out agricultural subsidies over a ten to twelve year period. A large portion of the agricultural community currently exists with minimal or no subsidies. The subsidies that do exist are wasteful, and prop up the top farms, and people who aren’t actually farmers. This proposal is a big step towards getting our agriculture policy in line with the free market, and towards a more fiscally responsible government.
