My Votes – Week of June 19th

Jul 18, 2023


A rule bill is a bill passed through a full House vote under a rule that has been voted and agreed upon by the Rules Committee. Rule bills require a simple majority of the House to pass (218 votes) through a recorded vote.


H.Res. 521

Censuring Adam Schiff, Representative of the 30th Congressional District of California

Passed  |  213-209, 6 Present
My Vote  |  YES

Rep. Schiff repeatedly misled the American People during his politically motivated investigation into President Trump’s campaign. The allegations that Schiff pushed have been proven false by numerous investigations and his actions cost the taxpayers $32 million.  Dishonest behavior like this by a high ranking member of Congress must not be allowed to continue without accountability. 


H.R. 3799

CHOICE Arrangement Act

Passed  |  220-209
My Vote  |  YES

This bill would allow employees to use money from their employer to buy a health care plan that works best for them.


H.J. Res. 45

Providing for congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the rule submitted by the Department of Education relating to “Waivers and Modifications of Federal Student Loans”

Passed  |  221-206
My Vote  |  YES

This bill nullifies the rule issued by the Department of Education that suspends federal student loan repayment. We should not shift the cost of student loan debt onto Americans who either never took on loans or already paid their loans back.   


H. Res. 461

Condemning the use of elementary and secondary school facilities to provide shelter for aliens who are not admitted to the United States

Passed  |  223-201
My Vote  |  YES

This resolution condemns using the facilities of a public elementary or secondary school that serves students to provide shelter for non-U.S. nationals (aliens under federal law) who are not admitted into the United States.


H. Res. 529

Relating to the resolution (H. Res. 503) impeaching Joseph R. Biden, Jr., President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors

Passed  |  219-08
My Vote  |  YES

This resolution refers articles of impeachment against President Biden to the House Committees on Homeland Security and Judiciary. This allows President Biden the due process that President Trump was denied when House Democrats – not once, but twice – tried to remove him from office for political reasons, which set a dangerous precedent.


H.R. 3564

Middle Class Borrower Protection Act

Passed  |  230-189
My Vote  |  YES

This bill rolls back changes made by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) to the fees charged by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for a conventional single-family mortgage. These changes would lower interest rates for people with lower credit scores.


A suspension bill is a bill passed by the House through suspending the rules to move quickly, circumventing the House Rules Committee. Suspension bills are typically less controversial pieces of legislation, and as the rules are being suspended, they require a higher threshold, two-thirds of those voting in the House, to pass. Additionally, these bills are often passed by a voice vote, without a formal roll call vote.


H.R. 3672

To designate the clinic of the Department of Veterans Affairs in Indian River, Michigan, as the “Pfc. Justin T. Paton Department of Veterans Affairs Clinic”

Passed  |  409-0
My Vote  |  YES

This bill designates the new community-based outpatient clinic of the Department of Veterans Affairs in Indian River, Michigan, as the Pfc. Justin T. Paton Department of Veterans Affairs Clinic.


H.R. 1606

Veteran Entrepreneurship Training Act

Passed  |  407-0
My Vote  |  YES

This bill allows the Small Business Administration to provide entrepreneurship training to former and active members of our Armed Forces, providing more opportunities for our nation’s military.
