How Lynn Woolsey votes in Congress

If you’re looking for a one-page compendium on how Lynn Woolsey votes, separated by issue category, check out her On The Issues page. It was there for instance that I found out for the prior post about her vote against making the Bush tax cuts permanent in April of 2002. Find that under the heading, “Lynn Woolsey on Tax Reform.”

No voter will either always agree or always disagree with any given member of Congress. Some of Rep. Woolsey’s votes have cause me no alarm, and have even gotten my approval. Other votes she has cast on the House floor have made me see red and caused me to feel grave concern for the future of our nation. Doubtless the same can be said of any of you. In the end, we have to evaluate whether our incumbent would better serve us by continuing to go to Washington D.C. or by staying away from it.

Seeing that she made the following choices — among many others; only a few examples appear here  –indicates that Rep. Woolsey isn’t in step with most Americans.   

  • Voted NO on banning partial-birth abortion except to save mother’s life. (Oct 2003)
  • Voted YES on additional $825 billion for economic recovery package. (Jan 2009)
  • Voted NO on protecting the Pledge of Allegiance. (Sep 2004)
  • Voted NO on ending preferential treatment by race in college admissions. (May 1998)
  • Voted NO on Bankruptcy Overhaul requiring partial debt repayment. (Mar 2001)
  • Voted NO on more funding for Mexico to fight drugs. (Jun 2008)
  • Voted NO on military border patrols to battle drugs & terrorism. (Sep 2001)
  • Voted NO on reducing Marriage Tax by $399B over 10 years. (Mar 2001)
  • Voted NO on deterring foreign arms transfers to China. (Jul 2005)
  • Voted YES on Congressional pay raise. (Jun 2009)
  • Voted NO on requiring photo ID for voting in federal elections. (Sep 2006)
  • Voted NO on restricting frivolous lawsuits. (Sep 2004)
  • Voted NO on building a fence along the Mexican border. (Sep 2006)
  • Voted NO on providing tax relief and simplification. (Sep 2004)
  • Voted NO on making the Bush tax cuts permanent. (Apr 2002)
  • Voted NO on $46 billion in tax cuts for small business. (Mar 2000)
  • Voted YES on establishing “network neutrality” (non-tiered Internet). (Jun 2006)
  • Voted YES on instituting National Service as a new social invention. (Mar 2009)
  • Voted NO on treating religious organizations equally for tax breaks. (Jul 2001) 

     Even though Marin and Sonoma counties are quite liberal in comparison with many other areas of our nation, most people here don’t want their member of Congress doing things like refusing to take steps to enforce border security, preventing polling places from asking for ID when individuals come to cast their vote, refusing tax-break assistance to struggling small businesses, trying to control the Internet, voting to continue preferential policies on college campuses, being unwilling to legislate against the horrible partial birth abortion practice, or repeatedly voting for salary increases for themselves. Yet, Lynn Woolsey does all these things and more.

    It is time for a CHANGE. Let’s vote Lynn Woolsey OUT.
