National security

John Brennan CIA nomination

Nay3.png Enzi voted against the confirmation of John Brennan as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. The nomination was confirmed by the Senate on March 7, 2013, with a vote of 63 - 34. Most Democrats supported the nomination, while Republicans were somewhat divided with roughly one-third supporting the nomination.[14]

Drones filibuster

See also: Rand Paul filibuster of John Brennan's CIA Nomination in March 2013

On March 6, 2013, Senator Rand Paul (R) led a 13-hour filibuster of President Obama's CIA Director nominee, John Brennan. Paul started the filibuster in order to highlight his concerns about the administration's drone policies. In particular, Paul said he was concerned about whether a drone could be used to kill an American citizen within the United States border, without any due process involved. Paul and other civil liberties activists criticized President Obama for not offering a clear response to the question. A total of 14 senators joined Paul in the filibuster -- 13 Republicans and one Democrat.[15][16][17]

According to the website Breitbart, Enzi was one of 30 Republican senators who did not support the filibuster.[18][19]

The day after the filibuster, Attorney General Eric Holder sent a letter to Paul, responding to the filibuster. Holder wrote, "Does the president have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on U.S. soil? The answer to that is no."[20]


Farm bill

Yea3.png On February 4, 2014, the Democratic controlled Senate approved the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act of 2013, H.R. 2642, also known as the Farm Bill.[21] It passed the Senate with a vote of 68-32. 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 will kick in when prices drop; however, cuts to the food stamp program cut an average of $90 per month for 1.7 million people in 15 states.[22] Enzi joined with 19 other Republican senators in favor of the bill.

2014 Budget

Nay3.png On January 16, 2014, the Democratic-controlled Senate approved H.R. 3547, a $1.1 trillion spending bill to fund the government through September 30, 2014.[23][24] The Senate voted 72-26 for the 1,582 page bill, with 17 Republicans and 55 Democrats voting in favor of the bill.[24] The omnibus package included 12 annual spending bills to fund federal operations.[25] It increased the paychecks of federal workers and military personnel by 1 percent, increased Head Start funding for early childhood education by $1 billion, reduced funding to the Internal Revenue Service and the Environmental Protection Agency, and left the Affordable Care Act without any drastic cuts.

Enzi voted with 25 other Republican members against the bill.[23][24]

Government shutdown
See also: United States budget debate, 2013

Nay3.png During the shutdown in October 2013, the Senate rejected, down party lines, every House-originated bill that stripped the budget of funding for the Affordable Care Act. A deal was reached late on October 16, 2013, just hours before the debt ceiling deadline. The bill to reopen the government, H.R. 2775, 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.[26] The final vote on H.R. 2775 was 81-18, with all 18 votes against the bill from Republican members. Enzi voted with the Republican Party against the bill.[27]

Enzi said he would return his earnings to the U.S. Treasury.[28]

No Budget, No Pay Act of 2013

Nay3.png Enzi voted against H.R.325 -- No Budget, No Pay Act of 2013. The bill passed the Senate on January 31, 2013, with a vote of 64 - 34. The purpose of the bill was to temporarily suspend the debt ceiling and withhold the pay of members of Congress until a budget could be passed. The vote largely followed party lines with Democrats overwhelmingly supporting it and many Republicans in opposition to the bill.[29]

Mexico-U.S. border

Yea3.png Enzi voted for Senate Amendment 1197 -- Requires the Completion of the Fence Along the United States-Mexico Border. The amendment was rejected by the Senate on June 18, 2013, with a vote of 39 - 54. The purpose of the amendment was to require the completion of 350 miles of fence described in the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 before registered provisional immigrant status may be granted. It would also require 700 miles of fence be completed before the status of registered provisional immigrants may be changed to permanent resident status. The vote followed party lines.[30]


Affordable Care Act

David Vitter (R-La) introduced Senate Bill 1497 on September 12, 2013, to expand the required coverage by state health insurance exchange, American Health Benefit Exchange, from members of Congress and their staff to also include the president, vice-president, executive branch political appointees and employees of congressional committees and leadership offices of Congress. It also prohibited any government contribution to or subsidy of this coverage. It was originally co-sponsored by Enzi, Dean Heller, Mike Lee (Utah), Ron Johnson and Jim Inhofe. Ted Cruz joined in on September 17, 2013.[31]

Vitter's bill was a response to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management ruling that allows members of Congress and their staff to keep their insurance subsidies provided by the government. The federal agency issued a proposed rule in August 2013. After a comment period, a final rule was issued and became effective October 2, 2013.[32][33]

Social issues

Violence Against Women (2013)

Nay3.png Enzi voted against S.47 -- Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013. The bill was passed by the Senate on February 12, 2013, with a vote of 78 - 22. The purpose of the bill was to combat violence against women, from domestic violence to international trafficking in persons. All 22 dissenting votes were cast by Republicans.[34]

Previous congressional sessions

National security

Letter to Iran

On March 9, 2015, Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) wrote a letter to Iran's leadership, warning them that signing a nuclear deal with the Obama administration without congressional approval was merely an "executive agreement." The letter also stated that "The next president could revoke such an executive agreement with the stroke of a pen and future Congresses could modify the terms of the agreement at any time." The letter was signed by 47 Republican members of the Senate. Enzi was one of the 47 who signed the letter. No Democrats signed it.[37]

The letter caused intense backlash from both the Obama administration and the public. Vice President Joe Biden said of the letter, "In thirty-six years in the United States Senate, I cannot recall another instance in which senators wrote directly to advise another country — much less a longtime foreign adversary — that the president does not have the constitutional authority to reach a meaningful understanding with them."[38] On Twitter, the hashtag "47Traitors" became the top trending topic in the world, and a debate raged as to whether the 47 who signed the letter were traitors or patriots.[39]

Involvement in Syria

See also: United States involvement in Syria

According to a report by The Hill in September 2013, Enzi was undecided on intervening in Syria, while Liz Cheney was among four Republican Senate candidates who had come out against it.[41] Enzi blasted Cheney for her statements on Syria, telling POLITICO, "I never try to judge another person, particularly an opponent, but my dad always said, ‘If you want to see what somebody’s going to do, look and see what they’ve done before.' And this is kind of a turnaround from what she’s done before. I try to stay a bit more consistent than that."[42]

Cheney responded to Enzi's comments saying, "he lacks experience in national security and foreign policy so it isn’t surprising he would fail to make distinctions between a misguided attack on Syria and military operations that are necessary to defend the security of the nation."[42]

Race background

Liz Cheney announced she was running for the seat Enzi currently holds, but she dropped out of the race after one of her children developed a serious health issue. Following Cheney's announcement in January 2014, Enzi asked for prayers for Cheney and her family. Enzi also mentioned Cheney had called to inform him of her decision. He said he wasn't sure if she was going to endorse him or not. He said, "I’d like for anybody to endorse me in the campaign — everybody to endorse me in the campaign, but you know she’s got other things on her mind. This was critical enough that she pulled of a race, so I’m not pressing for anything at this point."[45]

Enzi spoke in September 2013 at the New York Meeting, which is a meeting of conservative activists and donors.[46]

Primary vulnerability

Enzi was named by National Journal as one of the top five incumbent senators at risk of losing his or her primary election. Four of the five most vulnerable senators were Republican.[47]


Enzi was endorsed by the following people:

  • Sen. Rand Paul endorsed Enzi over Cheney before she dropped out of the race. Paul said, "I am a friend of Sen. Enzi and while we aren’t exactly the same, I consider him a good conservative."[48]
  • Sen. Jerry Moran, the National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman announced the official party body will support Enzi and several Senators have followed suit, including Wyoming Senator John Barrasso.
  • Sen. John McCain endorsed Enzi.[49]
  • Former Sen. Olympia Snowe endorsed Enzi. She stated:
    • "There is no reason to challenge him. What is the basis? That he’s not working hard enough? He’s working very hard. That he’s not conservative enough? I think it’s regrettable.”[50]
  • Sen. Orrin Hatch endorsed Enzi. He stated:
    • “I don’t know why in the world she’s [Cheney] doing this." Enzi is “honest and decent, hard-working; he’s got very important positions in the Senate. He’s highly respected. And these are all things that would cause anybody to say: ‘Why would anybody run against him?’”[51]
  • Sen John Cornyn endorsed Enzi, although he said he liked Cheney, as well. He reasoned:
    • “This is about getting the majority in the Senate. And we have to support our friends and people who have done a good job.”[51]



In August 2013, Liz Cheney called on Enzi, among other congressional members, to renounce the agreement allowing the government to subsidize part of the health care premiums for Congressional members and their staff. Cheney said, "The hypocrisy is stunning. But all too typical of how Congress works. Members cut special deals for themselves so they don’t feel the pain their laws inflict on the general public. That’s one of the reasons I’m running for the Senate — to end this self-serving, behind the scenes deal-making." Enzi's campaign spokesperson responded, "Senator Enzi has already opposed it and the other exemptions and delays for businesses, insurance companies etc. Senator Enzi will continue his efforts to defund and dismantle Obamacare. He’ll make decisions about his own health care without help from candidate Cheney."[52]

Churchill controversy

Enzi blasted Cheney for comments she made in September 2013. According to the Jackson Hole News and Guide, Cheney "compared herself to Winston Churchill standing up to Adolf Hitler" in a speech to her supporters on September 3, 2013.[53] Enzi referred to these comments in a interview with POLITICO. He said, "I had a lot of people who got ahold of me, and said, was she relating you to Adolf Hitler? So I certainly hope not…that’s a pretty strong statement to make against anybody, and it also called up some credibility on the Winston Churchill part too … If I’m involved in it, it was a terrible analogy, and probably one that deserved an apology."[42]

Cheney offered clarification on her analogy following Enzi's comments. She explained, "The historical analogy was not a comparison of anyone to past figures. My point is that there are turning points in the lives of nations. The spring of 1940 was one such moment, Reagan’s election in 1980 was another. These are moments of decision that determine the future of freedom, and I believe now is one of them."[42]

Dick Cheney friendship

Enzi responded to Dick Cheney's claim that he shares no friendship with Enzi. According to Enzi, they share a love of fishing. Enzi said, "I anchored the One Fly Fishing Contest with him one time, and I was asked to speak at his induction in the fly fishing Hall of Fame. And we’ve talked about fishing when we’ve been together." Enzi also pointed out that when he was a mayor, Cheney was serving as his U.S. Representative.[54]


Although Liz Cheney criticized Enzi for compromising in Washington, not everyone in Wyoming saw that as a problem. State Senator Charles Scott explained, "Ms. Cheney, when she started out, criticized [Enzi] for being willing to compromise with the Democrats. A lot of people out here thought, ‘Jeez, the problem with Washington is they won’t compromise when they need to.’"[55]

The poll found that both candidates had near universal name recognition in the state. This poll indicated that Cheney would have faced an uphill battle for the seat, if she had stayed in the race. Enzi had a 73 percent approval rating at the time of the poll, and 38 percent polled said that they had heard of Cheney but had no opinion of her.[56]

Personal Gain Index

Congressional Personal Gain Index graphic.png
See also: Personal Gain Index (U.S. Congress)

The Personal Gain Index (U.S. Congress) is a two-part measurement that illustrates the extent to which members of the U.S. Congress have prospered during their tenure as public servants.
It consists of two different metrics:

PGI: Change in net worth

Net Worth Metric graphic.png

Based on congressional financial disclosure forms and calculations made available by OpenSecrets.org, Rockefeller's net worth as of 2012 was estimated between $345,057 to $1,531,000. That averages to $938,028.50, which is lower than the average net worth of Republican Senate members in 2012 of $6,956,438.47. Enzi ranked as the 65th most wealthy senator in 2012.[71] Between 2004 and 2012, Enzi‘s calculated net worth[72] increased by an average of 6 percent per year. Between 2004 and 2012, the average annual percentage increase for a member of Congress was 15.4 percent.[73]

Mike Enzi Yearly Net Worth
YearAverage Net Worth
Growth from 2004 to 2012:49%
Average annual growth:6%[74]
Comparatively, the American citizen experienced a median yearly decline in net worth of -0.94%.[75]
The data used to calculate changes in net worth may include changes resulting from assets gained through marriage, inheritance, changes in family estates and/or trusts, changes in family business ownership and many other variables unrelated to a member's behavior in Congress.

PGI: Donation Concentration Metric

See also: The Donation Concentration Metric (U.S. Congress Personal Gain Index)

Filings required by the Federal Election Commission report on the industries that give to each candidate. Using campaign filings and information calculated by OpenSecrets.org, Ballotpedia calculated the percentage of donations by industry received by each incumbent over the course of his or her career (or 1989 and later, if elected prior to 1988). Enzi received the most donations from individuals and PACs employed by the Pharmaceuticals/Health Products industry.

From 1995-2014, 29.92 percent of Enzi's career contributions came from the top five industries as listed below.[76]
