Tell Bryan Steil to do Better

January 14, 2019

Here’s a look at how Bryan Steil voted over the previous week. Give him a call and tell him he really needs to do better for his constituents.

 

OBAMACARE LITIGATION: The House has agreed to a title of a bill (H. Res. 6), sponsored by Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md. The title would authorize House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to intervene, on behalf of the House, in an effort to uphold the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in the case of Texas v. United States, which concerns the constitutionality of the ACA. A supporter, Rep. Donna Shalala, D-Fla., said the title would allow the House to “defend the valuable protections in the Affordable Care Act that this case threatens to take away.” An opponent, Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla., said it would be a partisan, money-wasting effort by Democrats that went against the desire of many states to have the Affordable Care Act repealed. The vote, on Jan. 9, was 235 yeas to 192 nays.

SELECTED GOVERNMENT APPROPRIATIONS: The House has passed the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act (H.R. 264), sponsored by Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill. The bill would provide fiscal 2019 funding for the Treasury Department, judiciary branch, executive office of the president, and several independent government agencies, including the postal service. Quigley said the funding would end the government shutdown for more than 130,000 government workers at Treasury and other agencies, while maintaining fiscal responsibility. The vote, on Jan. 9, was 240 yeas to 188 nays.

TRANSPORTATION FUNDING: The House has passed the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act (H.R. 267), sponsored by Rep. David E. Price, D-N.C., to provide fiscal 2019 funding for the Transportation Department, Department of Housing and Urban Development, and various related transportation and urban agencies. A supporter, Rep. Judy Chu, D-Calif., said the funding was needed to avert the disruption of safe air travel due to the government shutdown. An opponent, Rep. Paul Mitchell, R-Mich., said the bill was a “bad faith” political effort by House Democrats rather than a serious attempt to negotiate bipartisan legislation that can become law. The vote, on Jan. 10, was 244 yeas to 180 nays.

FUNDING AGRICULTURE: The House has passed the Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act (H.R. 265), sponsored by Rep. Sanford D. Bishop Jr., D-Ga., to provide fiscal 2019 funding for the Agriculture Department and the Food and Drug Administration. A supporter, Rep. James P. McGovern, D-Mass., said the funding was needed to stop a shutdown of the agencies and “prevent hungry families from losing the lifeline of SNAP benefits and assure that our farmers get the services that they need.” An opponent, Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla., said the bill was a hastily developed measure with no chance of becoming law. The vote, on Jan. 10, was 243 yeas to 183 nays.
