National security

DHS Appropriations

Yea3.png Broun voted in favor of 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.[10]

Keystone Pipeline Amendment

Nay3.png Broun 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.[10]

CISPA (2013)

Nay3.png Broun 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.[11] The bill was largely supported by Republicans, but divided the Democratic Party.[10]

NDAA

Yea3.png Broun 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.[10]

Economy

Farm bill

Nay3.png 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.[12] 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.[13][14] However, cuts to the food stamp program cut an average of $90 per month for 1.7 million people in 15 states.[14] Broun voted with 62 other Republican representatives against the bill.

2014 Budget

Nay3.png 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.[15][16] The House voted 359-67 for the 1,582 page bill, with 64 Republicans and three Democrats voting against the bill.[16] The omnibus package included 12 annual spending bills to fund federal operations.[17] 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. Broun joined with the 63 other Republicans and 3 Democrats who voted against the bill.[15][16]

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.[18] 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.[19] Broun voted against the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.[20]

Nay3.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.[21] 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. Broun voted against HR 2775.[22]

Pay during government shutdown

See also: United States budget debate, 2013

Broun announced on Twitter on October 1, 2013, that he wanted his pay withheld "until we are able to resolve the govt #shutdown."[23]

Paul Ryan Budget Proposal

Nay3.png In March 2013 the Republican controlled House passed the budget proposal set out by Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan (R) for the third straight year.[24] However, not all Republican representatives voted in favor of the proposal.[24] Broun was one of the 10 Republican Representatives who voted against Ryan's budget proposal.[24]

The proposal was killed after being voted down in the U.S. Senate with a 40-59 vote.[25]

The proposal would have cut about $5 trillion over the next decade and aimed to balance the budget by the end of the 10-year period.[24] The 2013 bill had opposition from 10 Republicans — the same number that voted against it in 2012. In 2011 only four Republicans cast a vote in opposition.[24] Democrats have unanimously voted against the bill every year.[24]

Immigration

Morton Memos Prohibition

Yea3.png Broun 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.[10]

Healthcare

Healthcare Reform Rules

Yea3.png Broun 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.[10]

Keep the IRS Off Your Healthcare Act

Yea3.png Broun 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.[10]

Social issues

Amash amendment

Yea3.png Broun 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.[10]

House vote on abortion ban

Nay3.png On June 18, 2013, the House voted 228-196, mostly along party lines, to approve a ban on late-term abortions, or abortions occurring after 20 weeks of pregnancy[26][27] A number of members crossed over party lines in their votes. The vote was largely symbolic as the Senate is not expected to take up the bill and the White House has threatened to veto the legislation.[28] Broun was one of six Republican members who voted against the ban. Reps. Woodall and Broun were opposed because they felt the bill did not go far enough and left exceptions to the ban.[27][29]

Government affairs

HR 676

See also: Boehner's lawsuit against the Obama administration

Nay3.png On July 30, 2014, the U.S. House approved a resolution 225 to 201 to sue President Barack Obama for exceeding his constitutional authority.

He was 1 of 151 Republicans that voted against the bill. The bill was passed in the House by a 257 - 167 vote on January 1, 2013.[33]

Conservative Fight Club

According to the conservative website RedState, Broun was one of 16 U.S. House members in the "Conservative Fight Club," a designation meant to describe the "gold standard for conservatives in the House," as outlined by RedState. They were the 16 Republicans who voted against the continuing appropriations resolution to avoid the impending government shutdown in August 2014. This type of resolution is used to fund government agencies when a formal federal budget has not been approved.[36]

Controversy

Anti-science comments

Broun made a number of anti-science comments on on September 27, 2012, that incited controversy, especially since Broun at the time was a high-ranking member of the House Science Committee.

In response to the criticism, a spokeswoman for Broun explained the comments, and said that they were of a personal nature and that Broun was “speaking off the record to a large church group about his personal beliefs regarding religious issues.”[37]

Obama impeachment

Broun indicated during a tea party-sponsored candidate forum in February 2014 that he would support the impeachment of President Obama.[38]

List of corrupt members of Congress

The Washington, D.C.-based group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington included Broun on its list of the "most corrupt members of Congress" released in September 2013.[39] It was Broun's second consecutive year being included on the list.[39]

The group said Broun's inclusion stems from his "failure to disclose the true source and terms of his campaign loans."[39]

Broun is among thirteen members of Congress on the report. Four Democrats and nine Republicans are listed. Others included in the list are Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann.[39]
