Senate Vote-a-Rama - See How Your Senators Voted on Key Amendments Here!

Last Friday, the Senate voted on dozens of amendments to their budget resolution before eventually (narrowly) passing the budget itself. This frenzy of amendments, known as a "vote-a-rama", gave many Senators a chance to force their colleagues onto the record on many key issues that have not come up for a vote in the Senate in years.Among the most important (and revealing) votes were on Medicare reform, internet sales taxes, ObamaCare repeal, carbon taxes, and Senator Rand Paul's budget plan.

2013 Budget Report Card: Rand Paul's Budget Still the Best

This week the House and Senate will likely vote on their budget plans, along with a few conservative alternative budgets. To help you see where each plan stands in terms of spending restraint and economic growth, we have put together our second annual "Budget Report Card", which rates each of the major plans according to various economic criteria.This year even Paul Ryan's House plan balances in 10 years, while Rand Paul and the Republican Study Committee plans balance in 5 and 4 years, respectively. The Senate Democrats' plan, unfortunately, never reaches balance.

Key Vote: See How Your Representative Voted on the Continuing Resolution Here!

Today the House of Representative voted to pass a $1.126 trillion Continuing Resolution (CR) without any extended debate and without allowing any amendments to be offered. This was a tremendous abrogation of regular order in the budget process which has been repeated multiple times over the years, and a sign that the leadership in Congress remains unconcerned about the tremendous deficit spending that has lead to our astonishing $16.6 trillion in debt.

Key Vote: See Whether Your Senators Voted to Confirm Jack Lew Here

Tonight the Senate voted to confirm Jack Lew as the new Secretary of the Treasury. FreedomWorks has a multitude of issues with Lew being in charge of the Treasury, from his incompetence at the OMB to his risky investments at Citigroup, and strongly opposed his confirmation.
