National security

NDAA

Nay3.png Sanchez voted against HR 1960 - the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014. The bill passed the House on June 14, 2013, with a vote of 315 - 108. Both parties were somewhat divided on the vote.[9]

DHS Appropriations

Nay3.png Sanchez voted against 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.[10]

CISPA (2013)

Nay3.png Sanchez voted against HR 624 - the CISPA (2013). The bill passed the House on April 18, 2013, with a vote of 288 - 127. The bill would allow 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.[11]

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, known as the Farm Bill.[12] The bill passed by a vote of 251-166. The nearly 1,000-page bill provides for the reform and continuation of agricultural and other 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.[13][14] However, cuts to the food stamp program cut an average of $90 per month for 1.7 million people in 15 states.[14] Sanchez voted with 102 other Democratic representatives against the bill.

2014 Budget

Yea3.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.[15][16] The House voted 359-67 for the 1,582 page bill, with 64 Republicans and three Democrats voting against the bill.[16] The omnibus package included 12 annual spending bills to fund federal operations.[17] 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. Sanchez joined with the majority of the Democratic party and voted in favor of the bill.[15][16]

Government shutdown

See also: United States budget debate, 2013

Nay3.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.[18] 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.[19] Sanchez voted against the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.[20]

Yea3.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.[21] 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. Sanchez voted for HR 2775.[22]

Federal Pay Adjustment Act

Nay3.png Sanchez voted against 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 would prevent a 0.5% pay increase for all federal workers from taking effect, saving the federal government $11 billion over 10 years.[23]

Morton Memos Prohibition

Nay3.png Sanchez voted against 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.[24] The vote largely followed party lines.[25]

Healthcare

Healthcare Reform Rules

Nay3.png Sanchez voted against 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. The amendment requires that all changes to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act be approved by Congress before taking effect. The vote was largely along party lines.[26]

Social issues

Abortion

Nay3.png Sanchez voted against HR 1797 - Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The resolution passed the House on June 18, 2013, with a vote of 228 - 196 that largely followed party lines.

Campaign themes

2014

Sanchez's campaign website lists the following issues:[33]

  • Jobs and the Economy
Excerpt: "Ensuring that every American who wants to work can find a job is Linda’s #1 priority. That is why she has been a leader in advancing the “Make It in America” Agenda. The idea behind “Make It in America” is simple: America needs to be a place where we build make things again."
  • Supporting Small Business
Excerpt: "Linda knows that small businesses are the backbone of our economy and America’s job-creation engine. That is why she is working hard in Congress to provide critical financial support to small businesses in our neighborhoods, by enacting targeted tax cuts; improving the federal contracting and procurement systems; and increasing access to capital to help create new opportunities, grow existing businesses, and boost our economy."
  • Quality, Affordable Healthcare
Excerpt: "Linda proudly voted for the Affordable Care Act, which will strengthen Medicare; prevent insurance company abuses like cutting your benefits when you get sick or refusing to cover you if you have a “pre-existing condition”; and make health insurance more affordable for 30 million hardworking American families across the United States."
  • Ensuring a Clean Environment
Excerpt: "Linda knows that cleaner air and cleaner water will help our children grow up healthier. That is why she has championed efforts to reduce dirty trucks and pollution on the 110 710 Corridor and in the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles"
  • Make Our Schools Safer and More Effective
Excerpt: "Linda believes that every child deserves an A+ education: no child should have education opportunities reduced simply because of the neighborhood he or she lives in. That is why Linda has worked to reform No Child Left Behind. Rather than being a mere slogan, it should be a fully funded program that invests in our students so that they can meet the high expectations we have for them."
