David N. Cicilline (b. July 15, 1961, in Providence, Rhode Island) is a Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives from the state of Rhode Island. Cicilline represents Rhode Island's 1st Congressional District and was first elected in 2010. He is currently serving his second term, having won re-election in 2012.

Even though 1st District is 65% Democratic, Cicilline was considered vulnerable for re-election in 2012. He faced a strong challenge in both the primary, from Anthony Gemma, and in the general election, from Republican Brendan Doherty. Cicilline defeated Doherty to win re-election on November 6, 2012.[1]

Cicilline is running for re-election to the U.S. House in 2014. He will seek the Democratic nomination in the primary election on September 9, 2014. The general election takes place November 4, 2014.

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

See also: United States involvement in Syria

As of September 2, 2013, Cicilline said he was skeptical of President Barack Obama's proposed military strikes against Syria. He stated, "This will be a very heavy burden for me to persuade me that it is in the national security interests of the U.S. to engage in this military strike."[7]

DHS Appropriations

Voted "No" Cicilline 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 and was largely along party lines.[8]

Keystone Pipeline Amendment

Voted "Yes" Cicilline voted in favor of 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 "No" Cicilline 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.[9] The bill was largely supported by Republicans, but divided the Democratic Party.[8]

NDAA

Voted "Yes" Cicilline voted in support 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 "No" 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.[10] 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.[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] Cicilline voted with 102 other Democratic representatives against 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 three 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 protected the Affordable Care Act from any drastic cuts. Cicilline joined with the majority of the Democratic party and voted in favor of the bill.[13][14]

Government shutdown
See also: United States budget debate, 2013

Voted "No" 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] Cicilline voted against 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. Cicilline voted for HR 2775.[20]

Pay during government shutdown
See also: United States budget debate, 2013#Government Shutdown and Default Prevention Act

Cicilline planned to donate his salary to charity, if federal workers were not paid retroactively after the shutdown.[21]

Immigration

Morton Memos Prohibition

Voted "No" Cicilline 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. The vote largely followed party lines.[8]

Healthcare

Healthcare Reform Rules

Voted "No" Cicilline 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 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 "No" Cicilline voted against 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 "Yes" Cicilline voted in favor of 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

Voter fraud accusations

Candidate Anthony Gemma accused Cicilline of voter fraud in the 2012 election and previous elections. Gemma accused Cicilline of paying for votes, having people vote more than once and also using the names of deceased voters. Gemma stated that he hired an investigator to seek out these allegations. He did not share any information, which he said he had given to the FBI.[30]

Former Congressman Patrick Kennedy came out in support of Cicilline, stating that the accusations placed on him were "wild and reckless." In a statement delivered on August 25, Kennedy stated that, ."..the wild and reckless allegations we have seen this week serving only to distract from the serious issues facing Rhode Island, Democrats need to stay focused on winning in November..."[31]
