Despite being ranked as the most likely Republican incumbent to lose his primary in 2012, Murphy survived a primary challenge from Evan Feinberg and went on to defeat Larry Maggi (D) in the general election on November 6, 2012.[1][2]

Before becoming a congressman, Murphy was a state senator from 1997-2003.

Murphy is running for re-election to the U.S. House in 2014. He is seeking the Republican nomination in the primary election on May 20, 2014. The general election takes place November 4, 2014.

Based on analysis of multiple outside rankings, Murphy is an average Republican member of Congress, meaning he will vote with the Republican Party on the majority of bills.

Biography

One of eleven brothers and sisters, Murphy put himself through college and grad school. Throughout his psychology career, Murphy worked at several hospitals in western Pennsylvania before establishing his own private practice. Murphy has authored two books, the most well-known being, "The Angry Child." Murphy has also evaluated numerous child abuse cases in the Pennsylvania court system. While serving in the Pennsylvania Senate from 1996 to 2002, Murphy authored the Pennsylvania Patients' Bill of Rights. Along with his work in Washington, D.C., Murphy holds two Adjunct Associate Professorships in Pediatrics and Public Health at the University of Pittsburgh. Murphy is also a Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Naval Reserves Medical Service Corps and works with troops who have traumatic brain injury and post traumatic stress disorder.[3]

Accident in Iraq

In 2005, Murphy and two other congressmen - Reps. Jim Marshall (D-GA) and Ike Skelton (D-MO) - were riding in a convoy in Iraq when their driver drove the vehicle off the road and it overturned. The driver swerved on purpose after suspecting the car next to the convoy was a suicide bomber. Murphy and Skelton were sent to Ibn Sina Hospital in Baghdad. Murphy was later flown to Landstuhl Medical Center in Germany. After suffering some neck and head injuries, Murphy made a full recovery.[4]

National security

DHS Appropriations

Voted "Yes" Murphy voted in favor of HR 2217 - the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2014. The bill passed the House on June 6, 2013, with a vote of 245 - 182 and was largely along party lines.[8]

Keystone Pipeline Amendment

Voted "No" Murphy voted against House Amendment 69, which would have amended HR 3 to "require that the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, in consultation with the Department of Homeland Security, conduct a study of the vulnerabilities of the Keystone XL pipeline to a terrorist attack and certify that necessary protections have been put in place." The amendment failed on May 22, 2013, with a vote of 176 - 239 and was largely along party lines.[8]

CISPA (2013)

Voted "Yes" Murphy voted in favor of 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.[9] The bill was largely supported by Republicans, but divided the Democratic Party.[8]

NDAA

Voted "Yes" Murphy voted in favor of 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.[8]

Economy

Farm bill

Voted "Yes" 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.[10] 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.[11][12] However, cuts to the food stamp program cut an average of $90 per month for 1.7 million people in 15 states.[12] Murphy voted with 161 other Republican representatives in favor of the bill.

2014 Budget

Voted "Yes" 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.[13][14] The House voted 359-67 for the 1,582 page bill, with 64 Republicans and 3 Democrats voting against the bill.[14] The omnibus package included 12 annual spending bills to fund federal operations.[15] 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 left the Affordable Care Act without any drastic cuts. Murphy voted with the majority of the Republican party in favor of the bill.[13]

Government shutdown
See also: United States budget debate, 2013

Voted "Yes" 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.[16] 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.[17] Murphy voted to approve the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.[18]

Voted "Yes" The shutdown finally 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.[19] 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. Murphy voted for HR 2775.[20]

Immigration

Morton Memos Prohibition

Voted "Yes" Murphy voted in favor of 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. The vote largely followed party lines.[8]

Healthcare

Healthcare Reform Rules

Voted "Yes" Murphy voted in favor of 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 all changes to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act be approved by Congress before taking effect. The vote was largely along party lines.[8]

Keep the IRS Off Your Healthcare Act

Voted "Yes" Murphy voted in favor of HR 2009 - Keep the IRS Off Your Healthcare Act of 2013. The bill passed through the House on August 2, 2013, with a vote of 232-185. The bill would prevent the IRS and Treasury Secretary from enforcing the powers provided to them in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The vote largely followed party lines.[8]

Social issues

Amash amendment

Voted "No" Murphy voted against House Amendment 413 - Prohibits the National Security Agency from Collecting Records Under the Patriot Act. The amendment failed on July 4, 2013, by a vote of 205-217. The amendment would have prohibited the collection of records by the National Security Agency under the Patriot Act. Both parties were split on the vote.[8]

Previous congressional sessions

Fiscal Cliff

Voted "Yes" Murphy voted for the fiscal cliff compromise bill, which made permanent most of the Bush tax cuts originally passed in 2001 and 2003 while also raising tax rates on the highest income levels. He was 1 of 85 Republicans that voted in favor of the bill. The bill was passed in the House by a 257 - 167 vote on January 1, 2013.[21]

Voting Record

Since being elected in 2002, Murphy has missed 2 percent of all votes. The median is 2.4 percent.[22]

A February 2012 analysis by National Journal found that out of the 435 members of the House of Representatives, Murphy ranks number 142 in conservative rankings. The ranking means Murphy is the 142nd most conservative member of the House.[23]

Healthcare

Murphy has been a staunch opponent of President Obama's health reform bill. He voted against it in the House, and he later voted to repeal it. Murphy has supported the idea of broad health care reform, but he favors a plan offering tax credits to buy health insurance over the individual mandate. Murphy has also served as Co-Chair of the House Republican Doctor's Caucus, since it was created in March 2009.

Excerpt: "Lawmakers have looked at ways to fund health care. They need to look at ways to fix health care. ...A public plan option is not a fair option ...We need a system that is in a position of constantly moving toward reform. I'm not convinced that a government-run program can do that."[24]
Energy

Murphy has been a long-time advocate of expanding domestic oil drilling. He also voted against Cap and Trade. Most recently, he became a vocal proponent of the Keystone XL pipeline. Murphy has also actively worked to direct investments to clean coal and nuclear power plants.

Excerpt: "Energy equals jobs. Our economy in southwestern Pennsylvania is proof-positive that developing our own energy resources leads to job creation. The Keystone XL pipeline project is the "granddaddy" of energy-related job creators. ...The Keystone pipeline project requires no taxpayer money, a far cry from the trillion dollars of our children's money wasted on a failed stimulus plan that did nothing to reduce long-term unemployment."[25]

2012

See also: Pennsylvania's 18th Congressional District elections, 2012

Murphy ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent Pennsylvania's 18th District. He defeated Evan Feinberg in the Republican Primary on April 24, 2012, and defeated Larry Maggi (D) in the general election on November 6, 2012.[26]

According to an article from The Washington Post, on March 30, 2012, that notes the top 10 incumbents who could lose their primaries, Murphy was the most likely incumbent to lose his primary.[1] The primary battle against Feinberg, a member of the Tea Party wing of the Republican party, and being targeted by the Campaign for Primary Accountability Super PAC were the main reasons for Murphy's vulnerability.[1]

The Washington Post listed the House of Representatives elections in Pennsylvania in 2012 as 1 of the 10 states that could determine whether Democrats would retake the House or Republicans would hold their majority in 2013.[27] Ohio tied with Pennsylvania for 9th on the list.[27][28]
