===Campaign themes===
+
====2012====
+
King listed several of his campaign themes on his website:<ref>[http://www.peteking.com/ONTHEISSUES/tabid/57/Default.aspx Campaign website "Issues"]</ref>
+
*"Pete King strongly supports the PATRIOT Act, wiretapping foreign terrorists and allowing the CIA to carry out tough interrogations of foreign terrorists. Pete has fought hard to increase Homeland Security funding for police and firefighters in New York City and on Long Island. During his time as Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, Pete was responsible for the passage of historic legislation regarding port security, chemical plant security and restructuring the nation’s emergency response system. As Ranking Member of the Homeland Security Committee, Pete opposed President Obama’s decision to close Guantánamo and restrict interrogations of terrorists. As Chairman he will hold hearings on Muslim radicalization.
+
 
+
*Congressman King has fought for greater homeland security funding for fire departments throughout our district. Pete proudly serves as Co-Chairman of the Congressional Fire Caucus.
+
 
+
*Pete King was a leader in passing the Zadroga 9/11 Healthcare bill (HR 847) on behalf of rescue workers and others who were at Ground Zero and have become seriously ill from the toxins which they inhaled during the recovery effort and in the days and weeks following the attacks.
+
 
+
*As Ranking Member of the Homeland Security Committee Pete King works closely with the NYPD and the Nassau and Suffolk County Police Departments. Congressman King has obtained millions of dollars in Homeland Security funds for these departments.
+
 
+
*Congressman King knows that we must secure our borders and stop illegal immigration. Pete sponsored the law to construct a 700 mile fence along the border with Mexico and supports hiring thousands more border patrol agents, utilizing the most advanced military technology and equipment at the border and imposing heavy fines and prison sentences for companies that hire illegal immigrants. Pete opposes amnesty for the illegal immigrants living in our country.
+
 
+
*Congressman King is a strong supporter of preserving Social Security and providing expanded prescription drug coverage for senior citizens. Pete also supports legislation to make elder abuse a federal crime so that we can protect the hundreds of thousands of elderly Americans who are exploited, abused or neglected each year. Pete would also require background checks for health care workers and setting up data bases for elder abuse, similar to the registries we now have for child abuse.
+
 
+
*Congressman King has always been a strong supporter of our Armed Forces. Pete has traveled to battle zones in Iraq, Afghanistan and Bosnia to meet with our troops and has consistently voted to improve their pay and benefits. He has been a leader in the fight to support our returning troops by sponsoring The Returning Soldiers Bill of Rights Act and bringing veterans benefits into the 21st century.
+
 
+
*Pete King has been a dedicated and effective leader in the war against breast cancer throughout his years in Congress. Pete has supported legislation to increase Medicare reimbursements for screening and diagnostic mammographies; fund research centers to study the relationship between the environment and breast cancer; and require insurance companies to guarantee at least 48 hours hospital care after a mastectomy."
+
 
+
===To Ted Cruz: "Keep Quiet"===
+
In response to Sen. [[Ted Cruz]]'s effort to force a government shutdown over Obamacare, King publicly chastised Cruz for trying to influence the House. King continued:
+
::"We are going to lose this. It’s a wing within our party led by people like Ted Cruz who have been, as far as I’m concerned, carrying out a fraud with the people…They know it’s not going to win."<ref>[http://www.politico.com/story/2013/09/peter-king-ted-cruz-97089.html ''Politico'', "Peter King to Ted Cruz: ‘Keep quiet,'" accessed September 20, 2013]</ref>
+
 
+
===Criticism of Rand Paul===
+
 
+
{{youtube|title=x3ofIoSdE5o|size=250|caption= [[Peter King]] (R-NY) speaking about [[Rand Paul]] in an interview on ''CNN'' on August 1, 2013.}}
+
 
+
King made remarks in July 2013 that [[United States Senate|Sen.]] [[Rand Paul]] (R-Ky.) is leading the [[Republican Party]] in a dangerous direction and compared him to 1972 [[Democratic]] presidential nominee George McGovern.<ref name="paul">[http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2013/07/28/peter-king-rand-paul-is-the-gops-george-mcgovern/?wprss=rss_politics&clsrd ''Washington Post'' "Peter King: Rand Paul is the GOP’s George McGovern" Accessed July 31, 2013]</ref>
+
 
+
“When you have [[Rand Paul]] actually comparing (NSA leaker Edward) Snowden to Martin Luther King or Henry David Thoreau, this is madness,” King said on ''CNN’''s “State of the Union.” “This is the anti-war, left-wing [[Democrats]] of the 1960s that nominated George McGovern and destroyed their party for almost 20 years. I don’t want that to happen to our party."<ref name="paul"/>
+
 
+
King also said it was “disturbing” that 94 of the 234 [[U.S. House|House]] [[Republican]]s voted for a [[Justin_Amash#Amendment_to_defund_NSA_surveillance_programs|measure]] that would have defunded the National Security Agency’s phone record collection program.<ref name="paul"/>
+
 
+
King, the former [[U.S. House|House]] homeland security committee chairman, has suggested he might run for president in 2016, if for no other reason than to be a voice in opposition to [[Rand Paul|Paul’s]] foreign policy views.<ref name="paul"/>
+
 
+
“Aid to Egypt has nothing to do with aid to Long Island, or [[New Jersey]]. They’re two separate issues and he should know the difference between Egypt, Long Island and New York … [[U.S. Senate|Sen.]] [[Rand Paul|Paul]] claims to be a great friend of Israel but yesterday the ambassador to Israel … said that continuing American aid to Egypt is essential to maintain the peace process and maintain the Egyptian-Israeli peace agreement that was negotiated under President Carter over 30 years ago,” King said in an interview. “So it’s very easy to say ‘cut this, cut that,’ you can have an intelligence debate about it, but so far he hasn’t shown very much intelligence.”<ref>[http://www.politico.com/story/2013/07/peter-king-rand-paul-perpetuating-big-lie-95015.html#ixzz2b7Ij1Ipf ''Politico'' "Peter King: Rand Paul ‘perpetuating this big lie’" Accessed August 5, 2013]</ref>
+
 
+
King also argued [[Rand Paul]] and his [[Libertarian|libertarian]]-leaning views on foreign policy were making "America the enemy."<ref name="lib">[http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2013/08/01/peter_king_rand_pauls_views_on_foreign_policy_make_america_the_enemy.html ''Real Clear Politics'' "Peter King: Rand Paul's Views On Foreign Policy Make "America The Enemy"" Accessed August 5, 2013]</ref> "[[Rand Paul|He]] wants to retreat from the world. He wants to isolate ourselves, go back to a fortress America. The [[Republicans]] had this debate back in the 1930s, when you had the isolationist and the Charles Lindberghs, and the [[Democrats]] had it in the 1960s when the anti-war movement blamed America first. In both cases it hurt the party for years," King said in an interview on CNN on August 1, 2013.<ref name="lib"/>
+
 
+
===American response to Syria===
+
King said on August 26, 2013, that President [[Barack Obama]] as commander in chief “has the right to take” military action in Syria without congressional authorization.<ref name="syria"/>
+
 
+
“Let me make it clear: I believe the president can take this action without authorization from the [[Congress]], I believe he has, as commander in chief, he has the right to take this action,” King said. “It’s in his interest to consult with the leadership in the House and Senate, but I don’t believe he has to.”<ref name="syria"/>
+
 
+
King, who said he has not been contacted by the White House on the issue, said the United States must now act in Syria.<ref name="syria"/>
+
 
+
“Allies in the region, adversaries in the region, are going to look so we have to take action,” he said. “I believe that cruise missiles would be the best at this stage both as far as destroying the chemical weapons locations and also, as far as taking out command and control locations. But having said that, I am still not a big advocate for the rebels because I believe that in the last year or so they’ve become largely controlled or significantly controlled by Al Qaeda elements. If the president had taken action two years ago, we would be a lot better off.” The [[Congress|congressman]] added that “right now, I would not put American lives at risk.”<ref name="syria"/>
+
 
+
“Especially after what Secretary [[John Kerry|Kerry]] said, we have to act,” he said. “I’m not certain where this is going to lead, but once that red line has been crossed, once chemical weapons have been used, I believe the president has to take action.”<ref name="syria"/>
+
 
+
King noted “the president should not have set a red line unless he knew what he was going to do,” but “having drawn that red line we have no choice, I feel now, to take firm, strong action.”<ref name="syria">[http://www.politico.com/story/2013/08/peter-king-obama-syria-95957.html#ixzz2dGsHwlJz ''Politico,'' "Peter King: Obama has 'right' to act on Syria," accessed August 28, 2013]</ref>
+
 
+
===Specific votes===
+
====Fiscal Cliff====
+
{{Support vote}}
+
King voted for the fiscal cliff compromise bill, which made permanent most of the Bush tax cuts originally passed in 2001 and 2003 while also raising tax rates on the highest income levels.  He was 1 of 85 Republicans that voted in favor of the bill. The bill was passed in the House by a 257/167 vote on January 1, 2013.<ref>[http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2012/roll659.xml ''U.S. House'' "Roll Call Vote on the Fiscal Cliff" Accessed January 4, 2013.]</ref>
