{{Oppose vote}} 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.<ref>[http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2013/roll504.xml ''Clerk of the U.S. House,'' "Final vote results for Roll Call 504," accessed October 31, 2013]</ref> 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.

Campaign themes

2012

The followings are issues highlighted at Richmond's campaign website.[16]

  • Excerpt: On Crime - "Louisiana has the highest incarceration rate in the nation, yet our crime rate is still unacceptably high. It is clear that the “lock them up and throw away the key” approach to crime isn’t working. Instead, what we need to stop simply reacting to crime after it happens, and start finding ways to prevent it."[17]
  • Excerpt: On the Economy- " That’s why I am committed to investing in a strong and more educated workforce that has economic security and is better prepared to meet the challenges of the 21stcentury... One way I believe we can do this is with the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). The EITC reduces or eliminates the taxes that low-income, married or single working people pay (such as payroll taxes)."[18]
