DHS Appropriations

Yea3.png Lamborn voted for HR 2217 - the DHS Appropriations Act (2014) Act of 2014. The bill passed the House on June 6, 2013, with a vote of 245 - 182 that was largely along party lines.[7]

CISPA (2013)

Yea3.png Lamborn voted for HR 624 - the CISPA (2013). The bill passed the House on April 18, 2013, with a vote of 288 - 127. The bill permitted federal intelligence agencies to share cybersecurity intelligence and information with private entities and utilities. The bill was largely supported by Republicans, but divided the Democratic Party.[8]

Economy

Farm bill

Nay3.png On January 29, 2014, the U.S. House approved the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act of 2013, H.R. 2642, also known as the Farm Bill.[9] The bill passed by a vote of 251-166. The nearly 1,000-page bill reformed and continued various programs of the Department of Agriculture through 2018. The $1 trillion bill expanded crop insurance for farmers by $7 billion over the next decade and created new subsidies for rice and peanut growers that would kick in when prices drop.[10][11] However, cuts to the food stamp program cut an average of $90 per month for 1.7 million people in 15 states.[11] Lamborn voted with 62 other Republican representatives against the bill.

2014 Budget

Nay3.png On January 15, 2014, the Republican-run House approved H.R. 3547, a $1.1 trillion spending bill to fund the government through September 30, 2014.[12][13] The House voted 359-67 for the 1,582 page bill, with 64 Republicans and three Democrats voting against the bill.[13] The omnibus package included 12 annual spending bills to fund federal operations.[14] It included a 1% increase in the paychecks of federal workers and military personnel, a $1 billion increase in Head Start funding for early childhood education, reduced funding to the Internal Revenue Service and the Environmental Protection Agency and protected the Affordable Care Act from any drastic cuts. Lamborn joined with the 63 other Republicans and 3 Democrats who voted against the bill.[12][13]

Government shutdown

See also: United States budget debate, 2013

Yea3.png On September 30, 2013, the House passed a final stopgap spending bill before the shutdown went into effect. The bill included a one-year delay of the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate and would have also stripped the bill of federal subsidies for congressional members and staff. It passed through the House with a vote of 228-201.[15] At 1 a.m. on October 1, 2013, one hour after the shutdown officially began, the House voted to move forward with going to a conference. In short order, Sen. Harry Reid rejected the call to conference.[16] Lamborn voted for the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.[17]

Nay3.png The shutdown ended on October 16, 2013, when the House took a vote on HR 2775 after it was approved by the Senate. The bill to reopen the government lifted the $16.7 trillion debt limit and funded the government through January 15, 2014. Federal employees also received retroactive pay for the shutdown period. The only concession made by Senate Democrats was to require income verification for Obamacare subsidies.[18] The House passed the legislation shortly after the Senate, by a vote of 285-144, with all 144 votes against the legislation coming from Republican members. Lamborn voted against HR 2775.[19]

Federal Pay Adjustment Act

Yea3.png Lamborn voted for HR 273 - Eliminates the 2013 Statutory Pay Adjustment for Federal Employees. The bill passed the House on February 15, 2013, with a vote of 261 - 154. The bill called for a stop to a 0.5 percent pay increase for all federal workers from taking effect, saving the federal government $11 billion over 10 years.[20]

Morton Memos Prohibition

Yea3.png Lamborn voted for House Amendment 136 - Prohibits the Enforcement of the Immigration Executive Order. The amendment was adopted by the House on June 6, 2013, with a vote of 224 - 201. The purpose of the amendment as stated on the official text is to "prohibit the use of funds to finalize, implement, administer, or enforce the Morton Memos." These memos would have granted administrative amnesty to certain illegal aliens residing in the United States.[21] The vote largely followed party lines.[22]

Healthcare Reform Rules

Yea3.png Lamborn voted for House Amendment 450 - Requires Congressional Approval for Any Rules Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The amendment was adopted by the House on August 2, 2013, with a vote of 227-185.

Campaign themes

2014

Lamborn's office website listed the following issues:[31]

  • Taxes
Excerpt: "Working Americans need and deserve a fairer and simpler way to keep more of their hard earned money. I believe we need sweeping reform of our tax code that will give Americans more control of their money and help incentivize individuals and job creators to invest in our economy."
  • Jobs & the Economy
Excerpt: "First, the best way to get American families and businesses moving again is to allow them to keep more of their income. Congress should support across-the-board tax cuts. It is essential also that these cuts, besides being broad-based so Washington isn’t picking the winners and losers, they must be permanent so businesses can actually plan and invest on them."
  • Budget & Spending
Excerpt: "The independent Congressional Budget Office has produced numerous reports in recent years showing that our federal spending is unsustainable. Although Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid alone did not create this debt problem because they are two-thirds of the budget they are the lead drivers of the ever-growing federal deficit."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "I have heard from many of you about your concerns with the government takeover of our healthcare system. Overwhelmingly, you reject this one-size-fits-all approach in favor of more patient-centered, common-sense reforms."
  • Energy & Environment
Excerpt: "Every American has been directly affected by the energy crisis. The rising cost of oil necessitates an aggressive plan with meaningful solutions and immediate implementation. Gasoline prices are at an all time high with the potential to rise even higher. As a member of Congress, it is my duty and priority to support appropriate legislation most responsive to the needs of the American people."

Redistricting

Under the new state congressional map approved in 2011, Lamborn's 5th District only saw minor changes. The District remains a safe Republican seat.[32]

It consists of four different metrics:

PGI: Change in net worth
