National security

American response in Syria

See also: United States involvement in Syria

On August 29, 2013, more than 50 House Democrats signed a letter written by California Rep. Barbara Lee that called for a congressional resolution on strikes, and cautioned that the dire situation in Syria "should not draw us into an unwise war—especially without adhering to our constitutional requirements."[6][7] The letter also called on the Obama administration to work with the U.N. Security Council “to build international consensus” condemning the alleged use of chemical weapons. Kaptur was one of the 50 Democrats in the House to sign the letter.[6][7]

NDAA

Voted "Yes" Kaptur voted for 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]

DHS Appropriations

Voted "No" Kaptur 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.[9]

CISPA (2013)

Voted "Yes" Kaptur voted for 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.[10]

Economy

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.[11] 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.[12] Kaptur voted against the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.[13]

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.[14] 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. Kaptur voted for HR 2775.[15]

Federal Pay Adjustment Act

Voted "No" Kaptur 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.[16]

Immigration

Morton Memos Prohibition

Voted "No" Kaptur 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.[17] The vote largely followed party lines.[18]

Healthcare

Healthcare Reform Rules

Voted "No" Kaptur 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.[19]

Social issues

Abortion

Voted "No" Kaptur 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. The purpose of the bill is to ban abortions that would take place 20 or more weeks after fertilization.[20]

Political positions

Notable votes

  • Mortgage relief/Foreclosure Prevention Act of 2008. In 2008, Kaptur voted against $300 billion in mortgage relief. This was a vote against the Barney Frank motion to concur in the Senate amendment with the House amendment to HR 3221. The Senate amendment granted authority to the Treasury Department to extend new credit and buy stock in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It would also have created an independent regulator for FNMA and Freddie Mac and the Federal Home Loan Bank System. It would have overhauled the Federal Housing Administration and allowed it to insure up to $300 billion worth of new, refinanced loans for struggling mortgage borrowers. It also included a $7,500 tax credit to some first-time homebuyers, higher loan limits for FHA-backed loans, a standard tax deduction for property taxes and revenue-raisers to offset part of the costs. It also authorized $3.92 billion in grants to states and localities to purchase and rehabilitate foreclosed properties and increase the federal debt limit to $10.6 trillion. (Vote 519, HR 3221, 7/23/08, Passed 272-152 R 45-149 D 227-3).[24]
  • Lead paint and asbestos regulations. In 1995, Kaptur voted against exempting lead paint and asbestos regulations from an unfunded mandate ban. Kaptur voted against the Clay, D-MO, amendment to HR 5. The amendment exempted from the bill federal mandates that regulate lead paint and asbestos exposure in schools. (Vote 65, HR 5, 1/30/95, Rejected 127-297 R 0-225 D 126-72.)[25]
