House Vote 115 - Criminalize Price Control Violations
Vote on Barton (R-TX) motion that would require the Federal Trade Commission to define price gouging and to make it a federal crime.

May 3, 2006.

House Vote 187 - Cut Sugar Subsidy
Vote on the Blumenauer (D-OR) amendment to reduce sugar subsidies.

House Vote 239 - Regulate Internet Providers
Vote on Markey (D-MA) amendment that would establish network neutrality requirements. The pro-growth vote was "nay" because these overburdening regulations would impair private companies from making independent decisions. Defeated 152-269. June 8, 2006

House Vote 315 - Estate Tax Cut
Vote on passage of the bill that would reduce the estate tax, including $5 million and $10 million exemptions for individuals and couples, respectively.

House Vote 323 - End Second Home Insurance Subsidy
Vote on Pearce (R-NM) amendment that would end subsidies for most FEMA flood insurance programs. The pro-growth vote was "yea" because these subsidies distort the market and reduce the incentive for individuals to be self-reliant and less dependent on the government. Defeated 76-347. June 27, 2006

House Vote 356 - End Natural Gas and Oil Moratorium
Vote on passage of the bill that would end a federal moratorium some offshore drilling of oil and natural gas.

Return to the Club's Congressional Scorecard Overview

From Club Members

I endorse the Club for Growth's goals and appreciate the way it sticks to its principles.  This was proved again when it opposed the recent tax and spend deal which was popular with most GOP politicians.  The best chance this country has is reforming the GOP IMHO, and there is a long way to go in this effort.  The CFG is the best tool to make it happen.
