2015 Ratings of Congress | 114th Congress, First Session

LETTER FROM THE CHAIRMAN


I'm pleased to present the American Conservative Union Foundations (ACU) ratings for the First Session of the 114th Congress. Now in its 45th year, our
Congressional Ratings reflect how elected officials view the role of government in an individual's life. The Members of Congress with the strongest scores voted
most consistently with the ideals articulated in the U.S. Constitution: limited and transparent government, individual rights, personal responsibility, and a
healthy culture. Adhering to this approach every year since 1971, the ACU ratings are the most consistent measure of Congress.
Our comprehensive scoring covers all issues of interest to conservatives, seeking to balance President Ronald Reagan's three-legged stool of economic, national
security, and cultural conservatism. His presidential term ended years ago, but his legacy lives on and continues to guide conservatives in our modern era.
Circumstances on such critical issues as energy security and religious liberty shift over time, but the conservative principles in defense of these are timeless.
In 2015, the Republicans held majorities in both chambers of Congress for the first time since 2006. By examining these ratings, we can see how this has
affected the votes that were taken and which Members of Congress have best applied conservative principles to the issues before them. I know that this guide
will provide you with the most comprehensive evaluative tool to learn how your legislators measure up. We hope that our ratings will continue to encourage
Members of Congress to govern in a more conservative manner.
Sincerely,

Matt Schlapp
Chairman
American Conservative Union

HOW WE SELECTED THE VOTES


ACU researched and selected a range of bills before Congress
that determine a members adherence to conservative principles.
We selected bills that focus on Ronald Reagans philosophy of
the three-legged stool: 1) fiscal and economic: taxes, budgets,
regulation, spending, healthcare, and property; 2) social and cultural: 2nd amendment, religion, life, welfare, and education; and
3) preserving our nations security by maintaining a strong national
defense.
The wide range of issues covered are designed to give citizens an
accurate assessment of how Members of Congress best defend
the principles of a free society: Life, Liberty and Property.
The votes selected by the ACU are not always considered the
most important votes as defined by others; instead the votes we
score help reflect the ideological distinction among our elected
officials. oots conservatives and the public in an unbiased,
transparent manner on where individual members of Congress
fall on the ideological spectrum.

AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE UNIONS

2015 Ratings of Congress | 114th Congress, First Session

SENATE VOTE DESCRIPTIONS


1. S1 (Roll Call 6) Energy Efficiency Guidelines and Mandates. The Portman

amendment to the Keystone Pipeline approval bill creates a new federal programthe
Tenant Star programthat directs the EPA Administrator and Secretary of Energy
to develop energy efficiency guidelines and pressure tenants and commercial building
owners to adopt them. The bill also increases the energy efficiency mandate for water
heaters. ACU opposes mandating energy efficiency guidelines on buildings and any
other unnecessary regulations on products, which not only drive up costs for the average
consumer but also are not even the federal governments responsibility, and opposed this
amendment. The Senate passed the amendment on January 20, 2015 by a vote of 94-5.

2. S 1 (Roll Call 40) Wind Production Subsidies. The Heitkamp amendment to the

Keystone Pipeline approval bill extends eight renewable energy tax credits, including the
tax credit for wind production, through 2020. ACU believes all forms of energy should
compete within the free market and government should refrain from helping favored
energy sources and opposed this amendment. The Senate defeated the amendment on
January 28, 2015 by a vote of 47-51.

3. HR 240 (Roll Call 61) Funding Obamas Executive Action on Immigration. The

Cochran amendment to the Homeland Security appropriations bill removes the provision
that prohibits using funds for President Obamas executive actions on granting federal
benefits to illegal immigrants. ACU believes our current immigration laws should be
enforced and strongly opposes Obamas executive action that violates the current laws and
opposed this amendment. The Senate passed the amendment on February 27, 2015 by a
vote of 66-33.

4. S Con Res 11 (Roll Call 93) Minimum Wage. The Sanders amendment to the Budget

Resolution allows the Senate to go on record in support of a substantial increase in the


minimum wage. ACU opposes these artificial wages that hurt those who have the hardest
time finding employment, such as students and less experienced workers, and opposed
this amendment. The Senate defeated the amendment on March 26, 2015 by a vote of
48-52.

5. S Con Res 11 (Roll Call 98) Mandated Paid Sick Leave. The Murray amendment

to the budget bill calls on Congress to pass federal legislation that mandates paid sick
leave for employees. ACU does not believe the federal government has a role in deciding
employee compensation and opposed this amendment. The Senate passed the amendment
on March 26, 2015 by a vote of 61-39.

6. S Con Res 11 (Roll Call 106) Selling Federal Land. The Murkowski amendment to the

Budget Resolution allows the Senate to go on record as in favor of selling federal land back
to state and local governments. The amendment excludes national parks, national reserves,
and national monuments. ACU supports reducing the amount of land owned by the
federal government and supported this amendment. The Senate passed the amendment
on March 26, 2015 by a vote of 51-49.

7. S. Con. Res. 11 (Roll Call 108) Funding the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty. The Inhofe

amendment to the Budget Resolution prohibits the funding of U.N. organizations


responsible for implementing the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty until the Senate votes on its
ratification. ACU opposes any Presidents efforts to ignore the Constitutional requirement
of submitting treaties for ratification, exhibited specifically in the Obama Administration
with Obamas backdoor funding approval scheme, and supported this amendment. The
Senate passed the amendment on March 26, 2015 by a vote of 59-41.

8. S Con Res 11 (Roll Call 120) Project Labor Agreements. The Flake amendment to

the Budget Resolution allows the Senate to go on record against requiring businesses to
negotiate and obtain approval from labor unions during the awarding of construction
contracts. ACU opposes these agreements that interfere with the free market and drive up
the costs for taxpayers and supported this amendment. The Senate passed the amendment
on March 26, 2015 by a vote 51-49.

9. S Con Res 11 (Roll Call 134) Busting the Spending Caps. The Kaine amendment

to the Budget Resolution repeals the spending caps passed under sequestration. ACU
supports these modest spending caps that have helped reduce the annual deficit from $1
trillion per year and opposed this amendment. The Senate passed the amendment on
March 27, 2015 by a vote of 50-48.

10. S 178 (Roll Call 159) Religious Freedom. The Leahy amendment to the Runaway and

Homeless Youth Act prevents the federal government from participating in programs
designed to fight human trafficking if the program discriminates, regardless of religious
belief, on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. America has a long tradition
of helping people through faith-based charities, which this bill flies in the face of. ACU
supports the right to practice the free exercise of religion and believes no one should be
excluded from federal programs for practicing religion and opposed this amendment.
The Senate voted in favor of the amendment on April 22, 2015 by a vote of 56-43, but it
required 60 votes for passage.

2015 Ratings of Congress | 114th Congress, First Session

SENATE VOTE DESCRIPTIONS Continued


11. Presidential Nomination 4 (Roll Call 164) Loretta Lynch Confirmation. This vote

confirms the nomination of Loretta Lynch as Attorney General. ACU opposed the
confirmation after Lynch defended the Obama Administrations unconstitutional executive
action to give amnesty to some illegal immigrants and refused to give any limits to the
Presidents prosecutorial discretion. In addition, Lynch also refused to answer whether she
agreed with former Attorney General Eric Holders view that the First Amendment does
not provide religious liberty protection to churches and synagogues. A key vote came on
the motion to invoke cloture (end debate) on the nomination. ACU opposed the motion
that the Senate passed on April 23, 2015 by a vote of 66-34.

12. HR 1191 (Roll Call 167) Iran Nuclear Agreement. The Johnson amendment to the

Iran Nuclear Agreement bill requires that any agreement reached between the Obama
Administration and Iranian Government over their nuclear program be deemed a treaty
that requires Senate ratification. ACU opposes the Obama Administrations flagrant
disdain for the requirements regarding Senate ratification for treaties as detailed in the U.S.
Constitution and supported this amendment. The Senate defeated the amendment on
April 28, 2015 by a vote of 39-57.

13. HR 1314 (Roll Call 190) Trade Adjustment Assistance. The Flake amendment to the

Trade Promotion Authority legislation eliminates the extension of the Trade Adjustment
Assistance program. ACU opposes this program, which duplicates numerous other
federal job training programs, and supported this amendment. The Senate defeated the
amendment on May 22, 2015 by a vote of 36-62.

14. HR 1735 (Roll Call 206) Reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank. The Kirk amendment

to the Defense authorization bill reauthorizes the Export-Import Bank. This Depressionera bureaucracy primarily helps a select few multi-billion dollar corporations increase their
international business. ACU opposes this crony-capitalist policy, which gives foreign airline
companies discounted loan rates to purchase American planes, and supported this motion
to table (or kill) the amendment. The Senate rejected the motion on June 10, 2015 by a
vote of 31-65. A Yes vote supports the ACU position.

15. HR 1735 (Roll Call 210) Direct Arming of Iraqi Kurds. The Ernst amendment to the

Defense Appropriations bill authorizes the President to provide direct military assistance
to the Kurdistan Regional Government. ACU supports helping arm the Iraqi Kurds,
who have been a consistent ally of the United States and are helping us fight the terrorist
organization ISIS, and supported the amendment. The Senate favored the amendment on
June 16, 2015 by a vote of 54-45 but it required 60 votes for passage.

16. S 1177 (Roll Call 225) School Choice. The Alexander amendment to the No Child Left

Behind overhaul bill provides $24 billion in grants to low income families. These grants can
help a student pay tuition for a private school or help supplement a public school students
budget. ACU supports school choice and supported this amendment. The Senate defeated
the amendment on July 8, 2015 by a vote of 45-52.

17. HR 36 (Roll Call 268) Late-Term Abortion Restrictions. This motion invokes cloture

(ends debate) on the bill, allowing the Senate to vote on the bill. This bill prohibits
abortions where the probable age of the fetus is 20 weeks or older, but includes exceptions
for cases of rape, incest, or the life of the mother. ACU believes abortion is a human
tragedy, supports restricting the practice and educating patients, and supported both this
bill and the motion to end debate. The Senate rejected the cloture motion on September
22, 2015 by a vote of 54-42 (60 votes were required to pass).

18. HR 1314 (Roll Call 293) Changing the Rules on Spending. The Senate voted on a

Cornyn motion to waive all points of order against increasing the budget caps. This was the
critical vote that allowed the Senate to increase spending over the agreed-upon limits. ACU
supports sticking to the budget plan approved by Congress and signed by the President and
opposed the motion. The Senate approved the motion on October 30, 2015 by a vote of
64-35.

19. HR 1314 (Roll Call 294) Two Year Obama Budget Deal. This bill busts the budget caps

Congress had voted for, increasing the caps by $50 billion in Fiscal Year 2016 and by $30
billion in Fiscal Year 2017. The bill also suspends the debt limit until March 15, 2017.
ACU supports the budget caps as the only brake on federal spending, which has now
reached $19 trillion, and opposed this bill. The Senate passed the bill on October 30, 2015
by a vote of 64-35.

20. SJ Res 22 (Roll Call 297) Waters of the United States Rule. This resolution invokes

the Congressional Review Act to disapprove of the EPAs Waters of the United States
rule which changed the definition of navigable waterways to cover every small body of
water in the country, even down to a drainage ditch. ACU opposes this attempt by EPA
to control privately owned property and supported this resolution. The Senate passed the
resolution on November 4, 2015 by a vote of 53-44.

21. SJ Res 24 (Roll Call 306) Existing Power Plant Emissions Rule. This resolution invokes

the Congressional Review Act to disapprove of the EPAs Existing Power Plant Emissions
Rule. ACU opposes the EPAs attempt to use federal executive action to impose the cap and
trade plan rejected by Congress in 2010, which will drive up electricity costs for everyone,
and supported this resolution. The resolution passed the Senate on November 17, 2015 by
a vote of 52-46.

SENATE VOTE DESCRIPTIONS Continued


22. HR 3762 (Roll Call 314) Restoring Planned Parenthood Funding. The Collins

Amendment to the Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act removes the provision in the
bill that prevents Planned Parenthood from receiving much of its federal funding. ACU
believes abortion is a human tragedy, opposes federal funding for organizations such as
Planned Parenthood that perform abortions, and opposed this amendment. The Senate
defeated the amendment on December 3, 2015 by a vote of 48-52.

23. HR 3762 (Roll Call 329) Obamacare Repeal. The Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation

Act repeals major portions of Obamacare, including penalties for not complying with
the mandate to purchase insurance, Medicaid expansion, and subsidies to buy insurance
through government-controlled exchanges. The bill also prevents Planned Parenthood
from receiving much of its federal funding. ACU supports the repeal of Obamacare,
which has given the federal government effective control over Americas healthcare system
and dramatically increased the cost of health insurance for millions of Americans. ACU
also believes abortion is a human tragedy and opposes federal funding for organizations
such as Planned Parenthood that perform abortions and supported this bill. The Senate
passed the bill on December 3, 2015 by a vote of 52-47.

24. HR 2029 (Roll Call 339) Omnibus Appropriations. This 2,000 plus page bill combines

government funding for Fiscal Year 2016 with a House-passed tax bill. Although ACU
supported the initial tax bill that created permanent tax breaks for businesses and reigned
in the IRS, ACU opposes combining that bill with the omnibus that both busts the
budget caps by $50 billion and includes major increases for Obama pet programs while
doing nothing to prevent federal funding of Planned Parenthood, and opposed the
combined bill. The Senate passed the bill on December 18, 2015 by a vote of 65-33.

reforms entitlement programs by converting into block grants Medicaid, childrens

by a vote of 190- 232.

Restoration Act of 1993. ACU supports the free exercise of religion under the
Constitution and supported this resolution. The House passed the resolution on April
30, 2015 by a vote of 228-192

supported this bill. The House passed the bill on May 13, 2015 by a vote of 242-184.

9. HR 2578 (Roll Call 278) Spending Reduction. The Blackburn amendment to the

Commerce, Justice, and Science Appropriations bill provides for an across the board

amendment on June 3, 2015 by a vote of 168-257.

10. HR 2577 (Roll Call 298) Rural Air Service Subsidies. The McClintock amendment

mostly short distance air service to destinations easily accessible by car or bus and

Parenthood, and redirects the funds to community health centers that do not provide
abortions. This bill does not include limits on abortion services for cases of rape,
incest, or the life of the mother. ACU believes abortion to be a human tragedy,
supports educating patients and restricting the practice, and supported this bill. The
House passed the bill on September 18, 2015 by a vote of 241-187.

19. HR 3457 (Roll Call 533) Iran Sanctions. This bill prohibits the President from

waiving any of the sanctions under the Iran Nuclear Agreement until Iran pays the
legal terrorism-related judgment it owes and all outstanding judgments. ACU supports
forcing Iran to pay these judgements before lifting the sanctions and supported this
bill. The House passed the bill on October 1, 2015 by a vote of 251-173.

20. HR 10 (Roll Call 559) School Choice. This bill reauthorizes the District of

Columbias school voucher program, which allows eligible students to enroll in a


participating private school. ACU supports school choice and supported this bill. The
House passed the bill on October 21, 2015 by a vote of 240-191.

21. HR 597 (Roll Call 576) Reauthorizing the Export Import Bank. This bill

reauthorizes the Export-Import Bank for four years. This Depression-era bureaucracy
primarily helps a select few multi-billion dollar corporations increase their
international business. ACU opposes this crony-capitalist policy, which gives foreign
airline companies discounted loan rates to purchase American planes, and opposed
this bill. The House passed the bill on October 27, 2015 by a vote of 313-118.

22. HR 1314 (Roll Call 579) Busting the Budget Caps. This bill busts the budget caps

voted on by Congress, increasing the caps by $50 billion in Fiscal Year 2016 and by
$30 billion in Fiscal Year 2017. The bill also suspends the debt limit until March 15,
2017. ACU supports the budget caps as the only brake on increased federal spending,
which has resulted in a national debt of $19 trillion, and opposed this bill. The House
passed the bill on October 28, 2015 by a vote of 266-167.

HOUSE VOTE DESCRIPTIONS Continued


23. SJ Res 24 (Roll Call 650) Existing Power Plant Emissions Rule. This resolution

invokes the Congressional Review Act to disapprove the EPAs Existing Power Plant
Emissions Rule. ACU opposes the EPAs attempt to use federal executive action to
impose the cap and trade plan rejected by Congress in 2010, a plan that will drive up
electricity costs for everyone, and supported this resolution. The House passed the
resolution on December 1, 2015 by a vote of 242-180.

24. HR 2029 (Roll Call 705) Omnibus Appropriations. This portion of the bill contains

a 2,000 plus page Omnibus Appropriation that busts the budget caps by $50 billion
and includes major increases for Obama pet programs while doing nothing to prevent
the federal funding of Planned Parenthood. The bill also ignores many provisions
passed by the House Appropriations Committee, including the restriction of funds
for sanctuary cities and placing restrictions on the FCCs ability to enforce net
neutrality rules, giving the federal government power to control the Internet. ACU
opposes these massive bills that are passed with little discussion and are not allowed
any amendments, and opposed this bill. The House passed the bill on December 18,
2015 by a vote of 316-113.
