Louise McIntosh Slaughter (b. August 14, 1929, in Harlan County, KY) is a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives representing New York's 25th Congressional District. Slaughter was first elected to the House in 1986 and is currently serving her 15th consecutive term.

In 2014, Slaughter won re-election to the U.S. House to represent the 25th Congressional District of New York.[1] She ran unopposed for the Democratic and Working Families Party nominations in the primary on June 24, 2014.[2] Slaughter went on to defeat Mark Assini (R) in the general election on November 4, 2014. With less than 1,000 votes separating the two candidates, Assini did not concede the race until eight days after the election.[3]

Before redistricting in 2012, Slaughter previously served in the 30th District from 1987-1993 and in the 28th District from 1993-2013.[4] Politico reported that redistricting prior to the 2012 election made her district far less favorable to Democrats.[5]

Prior to being elected to the House, Slaughter was a member of the New York State Assembly from 1983 to 1986.[6]

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

DHS Appropriations

Nay3.png Slaughter voted in opposition of HR 2217 - the DHS 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.[23]

Keystone Pipeline Amendment

Yea3.png Slaughter 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."

See also: United States Farm Bill 2013

King represents Iowa, which is a large egg producer.

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.[29] 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.[30] Slaughter voted against the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.[31]

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.[32] 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. Slaughter voted for HR 2775.[33]

Elections

2014

See also: New York's 25th Congressional District elections, 2014

In 2014, Slaughter won re-election to the U.S. House to represent New York's 25th District. Slaughter ran unopposed for the Democratic and Working Families Party nominations in the primary on June 24, 2014. She then defeated Mark Assini (R) in the general election. The general election took place November 4, 2014.

Assini did not concede to Slaughter until eight days after the election.[3] With all precincts reporting, but before all absentee and affidavit ballots were counted, Slaughter had 93,053 votes to Assini's 92,471. According to two County Board of Elections commissioners, there were still around 2,000 affidavit ballots and 1,300 absentee ballots left to be counted, leaving a slim possibility that Assini could have caught up. Assini said that he would not concede until all votes had been accounted for, stating, "In all fairness to the voters, you should let the votes be counted."[41] After many of the additional ballots were counted on November 12, Slaughter had pulled ahead slightly, 96,800 to 95,931, and Assini called Slaughter to congratulate her on her victory.[3]

It consists of two different metrics:

PGI: Change in net worth

In the 113th Congress, Slaughter is the ranking member of the United States House of Representatives Committee on Rules.
