#LLPH #CutSpending Scorecard/Leadership Points: #Legislative Branch #Appropriations FY 2015! #TCOT #WeWantCutsNow

LLPH scored two recorded votes that were taken today in the House of Representatives in our spending cut scorecard. Our spending cut scorecard reflects spending cut amendments during appropriation season. Members who earn a 50% gets 5/10 points in our 100-point Congressional Scorecard, an 80% gets a representative 10/10 points. 90% and above will give the representative 5 extra points.

Here are the two votes: 

Gosar (AZ): Reduces the amount provided for the Botanic Garden to the fiscal year 2014 level and transfers the funds to the spending reduction account. (Saves $3,166,946) http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2014/roll189.xml PASSED 219 ayes to 198 nays.

Broun (GA): Reduces the funding for the Capitol Visitor Center by $243,000, returning it to FY14 levels.  http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2014/roll190.xml Failed 207 ayes to 212 nays.

Leadership Points: 10 Leadership Points=1 Extra Credit Point

Rep. Gosar will be awarded another 1 leadership point for his success in getting a spending cut amendment passed. Congratulations to him.

And then the Legislative Branch Appropriations FY 2015 passage (9 Republicans voted no; 2 LPs awarded): 

This bill increases spending from the FY 2014 levels. The Capitol Visitor Center and other parts of the branch get increases, and Rep. Broun and Gosar’s efforts to get more spending cuts were not allowed a vote.

Broun (GA)
Duncan (TN)
Franks (AZ)
Rogers (AL)
