Economy

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.[8] 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.[9] Chabot voted in favor of the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.[10]

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.[11] 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. Chabot voted against HR 2775.[12]

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.[14] The vote largely followed party lines.[15]

Healthcare

Healthcare Reform Rules

Yea3.png Chabot voted for House Amendment 450 - Requires Congressional Approval for Any Rules Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Campaign themes

2014

Chabot's website lists the following issues:[24]

  • Revitalizing the Economy: "Our economy remains stagnant and unemployment is unacceptably high. This Administration has proliferated a hostile environment that is sustaining that stagnation and high unemployment numbers. Small businesses have been burdened with a health care law they didn't want and higher regulation and taxes they can't afford. As the former Ranking Member on the Committee on Small Business, I know we must end the uncertainty small businesses face and start pushing common-sense policies to spur innovation, development and job creation. Cut the red tape. Lower our taxes. Stop the out-of-control spending. Let's get our economy moving in the right direction."
  • Healthcare: "There is no question that our health care system needs to be reformed. Costs continue to rise and far too many are unable to purchase coverage for their families, but that didn't require a complete takeover of our current system. I support repealing the massive healthcare power-grab by the federal government and replacing it with measures that would ensure that American families have access to affordable and quality care—this can be done without breaking the bank. I authored legislation called the "Healthcare Insurance Affordability Act." This would provide every American the ability to deduct 100 percent of the cost of their health insurance premiums."
  • Energy: "America must move towards energy independence in a manner that does not threaten the environment, or kill job creation. I believe we need to consider all available options including wind, solar, bio, nuclear and drilling right here at home. I am a strong proponent for the Keystone XL pipeline that would bring thousands of barrels of oil to the U.S. each day, not to mention, create thousands of American jobs. Some of those jobs would be created right here in Cincinnati at our Siemens plant."
  • Government Spending: "I believe the federal government should have to operate in a fiscally responsible manner, just as most American families and small businesses do. The money being spent by the government is your money. That's why I have been a consistent advocate for a balanced budget amendment to our Constitution. This year we've surpassed $15 trillion in debt! This is unacceptable. It's time that Congress make the tough decisions to stop wasteful government spending."
  • Protecting Social Security: "Social Security provides critical benefits to more than 50 million Americans and I firmly believe that these benefits must be protected. That is why I am against the privatization of Social Security as well as any cuts to our Social Security program. Unfortunately, the Democrats' big-spending agenda is threatening the solvency of our Social Security system. In 2009, the Social Security trustees predicted that Social Security would start paying out more in benefits than it collects in taxes in 2016. Though this is a grim forecast, cutting benefits is not an option that I would support. One of the biggest problems is that the money taken out of a person's paycheck for Social Security is spent by Congress on other things. That's why I co-sponsored the "Social Security Preservation Act" which would have required that every penny taken out of a person's paycheck for Social Security, could only be used for Social Security, and nothing else."
  • Veterans: "We can never do enough to repay the sacrifices made by the brave men and women who served in our country's armed forces. As a grateful nation, we must do everything in our power to ensure that these men and women are receiving the care and resources they need. I will always be a strong supporter of legislation and funding efforts that would ensure veterans access to medical care, education and financial services."
