-- [ Page 56 ] --

Across-The-Board Cuts Would Hurt 46,000 Texas Veterans In His District. “If Hurd’s budget plan were passed, drastic cuts would be made to veterans’ services. Hurd’s plan slashes the budget indiscriminately, without regard for what is being used to help those who have served our country.

The budget would cut funding for VA hospitals in the district, and exacerbate the already-existing problems veterans face because of improperly funded VA offices. CD-23 is home to over 46,000 veterans who would be hurt by Will Hurd’s plan.” [Burnt Orange Report, 7/10/14] Hurd’s Dangerous Plan Jeopardizes Disability Compensation and Pensions for Texan Veterans. In 2013, the Department of Veterans Affairs awarded $6 billion in compensation for service related disabilities, compensation for service connected deaths, pensions, burial and other benefits to Texan veterans and their families, including $206 million in the 23rd congressional district. [Department of Veterans Affairs, 2013 Expenditures, accessed 7/07/14] Hurd’s Dangerous Plan Jeopardizes Education and Career Counseling for Texan Veterans. In 2013, the Department of Veterans Affairs directed $1.1 billion toward Education & Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment programs in Texas, including $34 million in the 23rd congressional district. [Department of Veterans Affairs, 2013 Expenditures, accessed 7/07/14] Hurd’s Dangerous Plan Jeopardizes Programs to Help Homeless Veterans in Texas. In 2014, the Department of Labor awarded $3 million in job training grants for homeless veterans to organizations in Texas.

Additionally, the Department of Veterans Affairs awarded $6.7 million in Supportive Services for Veteran Families grants to Texas programs that help prevent and end homelessness among veterans.

[Department of Labor, 6/26/14; SSVF FY2013 Annual Report] Hurd’s Dangerous Plan Jeopardizes Programs to Help Texas Veterans Start Small Businesses.

The Small Business Administration’s Office of Veterans Business Development helps veterans access and apply federally funded small business programs, including grants and loans. [US Small Business Administration, accessed 7/09/14] Hurd’s Dangerous Plan Jeopardizes Programs to Improve Veterans Access to Transportation. The Department of Transportation awards grants “to help veterans, military families, and others connect to jobs and services in their communities by improving access to local transportation options.” [Federal Transit Administration, 7/09/14] Hurd’s Plan Jeopardizes Medical Care for 12,000 Veterans in the 23rd Congressional District. In 2013, the Department of Veterans Affairs provided medical care to 434,255 Texan veterans, including 12,490 in the 23rd congressional district. [Department of Veterans Affairs, 2013 Expenditures, accessed 7/07/14] Department of Veterans Affairs Provides Health Benefits for Family Members of Veterans Under Certain Circumstances. According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, “Under certain circumstances, family members of Veterans are eligible for health benefits. Some of the programs offered include the Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA), Spina Bifida (SB), Children of Women Vietnam Veterans (CWVV), Foreign Medical Program (FMP) and Caregiver.” [U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, accessed 8/05/14] Voted For Blocking Consideration Of Bill To Accelerate Skills Training For US Veterans.

Voted For Blocking Consideration Of Bill To Accelerate Skills Training For US Veterans. In February 2015, Hurd voted for blocking consideration of H.R. 344, a bill to “to carry out a five-year pilot program (to be known as the Veterans Manufacturing Employment Program) to award competitive grants to three states for the establishment and administration of a State Manufacturing Employment Program to make grants to manufacturing employers and labor-management organizations that provide training, onjob training, apprenticeships, and certification classes to eligible veterans.” The previous question passed, 242 to 183. A vote against the previous question would have allowed the bill to be considered.

[H.RES.78, Vote #59, 2/04/15; CRS Summary, 1/14/15]

Voted Against Protecting Whistleblowers At The Department Of Veterans Affairs

Voted Against Protecting Whistleblowers At The Department Of Veterans Affairs. In July 2015, Hurd voted against a motion to protect VA whistleblowers “who strive to ensure public health and safety, and are willing to expose discrimination and malfeasance, from being fired at will.” The motion failed 184 to 241. [HR 1994, Vote #488, 7/29/15; Democratic Leader – 114th Congress Motions to Recommit, 7/29/15]

Voted For Amendment To Increase Veterans Affairs Department Budget By $1.5 Billion

Voted For Amendment To Increase Veterans Affairs Department Budget By $1.5 Billion. In April 2015, Hurd voted for the Dent, R-Pa., point of order that the Bishop, D-Ga., amendment addresses sections of the bill that have not yet been read, and is consequently out of order. The Bishop amendment would increase various spending levels in accounts within the Veterans Affairs department. The ruling of the chair was sustained by a vote of 237-180. [HR 2029, Vote #178, 4/29/15; CQ Floor Votes, 4/29/15;

Congressional Record, 4/29/15]

Voted For Underfunding VA Programs





Voted For MilCon-VA Appropriations Bill That Underfunded VA By More Than $1 Billion, Impacting 70,000 Veterans. In April 2015, Hurd voted for legislation that would underfund the VA and impact veterans’ health care, medical research, education, and cemeteries. “Addressing the Democrats at a closed-door caucus meeting in the Capitol Wednesday, VA Secretary Robert McDonald warned the lawmakers that the GOP’s $77 billion bill funding the department and military construction projects in fiscal 2016 falls short of the resources needed to provide health and other services to the nation’s veterans.

Relaying McDonald’s message, Rep. Xavier Becerra (Calif.), chairman of the Democratic Caucus, said the GOP’s bill would scale back health benefits for roughly 70,000 veterans, while also denying funds for medical research, education and veterans’ cemeteries … Passed with bipartisan support by the House Appropriations Committee last week, the bill provides a 5.6 percent increase for the VA over 2015 levels, but falls more than $1 billion shy of the figure President Obama had included in his 2016 budget request.” The bill passed 225 to 163. [HR 2029, Vote #193, 4/30/15; The Hill, 4/29/15] Voted Against Amendment To Increase VA Funding For Veterans Medical Services By $15 Million. In April 2015, Hurd voted against a motion that would have added $15 million to VA funding for veterans medical services. The motion failed 181 to 236. [HR 2029, Vote #192, Motion to Recommit with Instructions, 4/30/15] Voted Against Allowing VA Doctors To Discuss Medical Marijuana As Treatment Option For Veterans Voted Against Amendment To Allow VA Doctors To Talk To Patients About Medical Marijuana As A Treatment Option. In April 2015, Hurd voted against an amendment that would allow doctors at the VA to talk to patients about the use of medical marijuana as a treatment option. “The House rejected a proposal Thursday to allow doctors at Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals to discuss the use of medical marijuana with patients … Medical marijuana is legal in more than 30 states and the District of Columbia. But VA doctors are prohibited from completing patient forms seeking recommendations or opinions regarding medical marijuana to treat conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) … Lawmakers from both parties argued veterans should at least be able to receive recommendations from their doctors about the drug’s merits. They stressed the amendment wouldn’t force doctors to recommend medical marijuana or authorize marijuana possession at VA facilities.” The amendment failed to pass 210 to 213. [HR 2029, Vote #188; On Agreeing to the Amendment, 4/30/15; The Hill, 4/30/15] Voted Against Allowing The Department of Veterans Affairs To Immediately Suspend Employees Without Pay For Threatening Public Health Or Safety Voted Against Allowing The Department of Veterans Affairs To Immediately Suspend Employees Without Pay For Threatening Public Health Or Safety. In July 2015, Hurd voted against an amendment granting the Veterans Affairs Department the authority to suspend without pay any employee whose performance or misconduct threatens public health and safety. Rep. Mark Takano, sponsor of the amendment in the nature of a substitution said during debate on the House floor, “My substitute would mean that, if a VA employee’s behavior threatened veterans’ health or safety, VA could immediately fire that employee. Current law only allows VA to ask such an employee to leave work while still receiving pay. My substitute would also cap paid administrative leave at 14 days so VA employees would not sit at home and collect a paycheck while fighting a disciplinary action. My substitute would shield our bold VA whistleblowers by protecting existing laws and requiring the VA to back pay any whistleblower unjustly fired for reporting wrongdoing.” The substitute amendment failed, 191 to 233. [HR 1994, Vote #487, 7/29/15; H.Amdt.693, 7/29/15] Voted For Cutting Workplace Protections For Department Of Veterans Affairs Employees Voted For Cutting Workplace Protections For Department Of Veterans Affairs Employees. In July 2015, Hurd voted for a bill cutting “workplace protections for Department of Veterans Affairs employees and extend their probationary period, making it easier to fire new staffers … In a statement the day before the vote, the White House said the legislation would create ‘a disparity in the treatment of one group of career civil servants. The centerpiece of the bill is a provision that allows a VA employee to be removed from Federal service or demoted without the opportunity to appeal that decision to the full Merit Systems Protection Board’ (MSPB), as most other federal workers can.” The bill passed 256 to 170. [HR 1994, Vote #489, 7/29/15; Washington Post, 7/29/15]

Voted For Bill To Help Prevent Veteran Suicide

Voted For Bill To Help Prevent Veteran Suicide. In January 2015, Hurd voted for a bill that would “designed to launch new community outreach efforts and recruit more psychiatrists to slow the nation’s estimated 22 veterans suicides each day … The Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention bill, named for a Marine veteran activist who took his own life in 2011, would require an annual evaluation of VA suicide prevention programs, to determine which are working and which need to be replaced. It would mandate a new website better detailing the department’s many mental health resources, and create new peer support programs for veterans outreach. Supporters say both of those are relatively simple changes which could produce immediate aid for veterans in crisis. The measure would also start a pilot program to repay student loans of psychiatry students, helping VA officials more quickly fill those specialty vacancies.” The bill passed 403 to 0. [HR 203, Vote #17, 1/12/15; Military Times, 1/12/15] Voted For Legislation To Offer A Percentage Of Construction Jobs Related To Federal Transportation Projects To Veterans Voted For Legislation To Offer A Percentage Of Construction Jobs Related To Federal Transportation Projects To Veterans. In November 2015, Hurd voted for legislation requiring “states to offer a percentage of construction jobs related to transportation projects to veterans.” “The measure, which is sponsored by Reps. Mike Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.), Cheri Bustos (D-Ill.) and Don Young (R-Alaska), calls for states that receive federal money for transportation projects to included veteran-owned businesses in their contracting processes. The sponsors said the measure, which has been dubbed the ‘Fairness to Veterans for Infrastructure Investment Act’ (H.R. 1694), would ‘level the playing field in federal contracting for veteran-owned businesses by providing veterans access to existing preferences authorized for transportation projects.’” On a “motion to suspend the rules and pass” by a 2/3 vote, the bill passed the House, 285 - 138.

 Voted four times to defund Planned Parenthood, threatening access to health services for millions of women  Voted for the FY 2016 Republican Budget, which would allow insurance companies to charge women more than men for the same coverage by repealing the Affordable Care Act  ACA repeal would let insurance companies drop coverage for life-saving cancer screenings, including mammograms, by repealing the Affordable Care Act  ACA repeal would let insurance companies drop coverage for birth control, including the pill, by repealing the Affordable Care Act  Voted to restrict a woman’s right to choose after 20 weeks and establishing a 48hour waiting period for rape survivors  Repeatedly voted against consideration of the Paycheck Fairness Act  Had a 100 percent score with National Right to Life as of September 2015 Hurd has voted four times to defund Planned Parenthood, threatening access to health services for millions of women. Hurd also voted for the FY 2016 House Republican Budget which, by repealing the Affordable Care Act, would allow insurance companies to charge women more than men for the same coverage, drop coverage for life-saving cancer screenings including mammograms, and stop covering contraceptives, such as the bill, all together. Beyond the consequences of ACA repeal, Hurd voted to restrict a woman’s right to choose after 20 weeks and even establishing a 48-hour waiting period for rape survivors. Hurd has also repeatedly sided against pay equity by voting against consideration of the Paycheck Fairness Act.

Voted Four Times To Defund Planned Parenthood, Threatening Access To Health Services For Millions Of Women Voted For Overriding The President’s Veto Of A Bill To Repeal The Affordable Care Act And Block Funding Of Planned Parenthood For A Year. In February 2016, Hurd voted for overriding the President’s veto of a bill to “repeal portions of the 2010 health care law and block federal funding for Planned Parenthood for one year. The bill would zero-out the law's penalties for noncompliance with the law's requirements for most individuals to obtain health coverage and employers to offer health insurance.

The bill would scrap in 2018 the law's Medicaid expansion, as well as subsidies to help individuals buy coverage through the insurance exchanges. It also would scrap certain taxes included in the law, including the tax on certain high-value employer-sponsored health insurance plans.” The override required a twothirds majority to pass, but failed 241 to 186. [H R 3762, Vote #53, 2/02/16, 2/02/16; CQ Floor Votes, 2/02/16] Voted For Repealing The Affordable Care Act And Defunding Planned Parenthood For One Year.

In January 2016, Hurd voted for repeal the Affordable Care Act and defund Planned Parenthood. “The House on Wednesday passed legislation that would repeal much of ObamaCare and defund Planned Parenthood for one year, sending the measure to President Obama's desk. The bill passed by a vote of 240 to 181.” [HR 3762, Vote #6, 1/06/15; The Hill, 1/06/15] Voted For Reconciliation Bill To Repeal Key Sections Of The Affordable Care Act And Defund Planned Parenthood. In October, 2015, Hurd voted for a “budget reconciliation bill that seeks to gut Obamacare by repealing key sections of the law, including the individual and employer mandate and the so-called ‘cadillac’ tax, which targets high-end employer-sponsored health plans. In addition, it would block funding for Planned Parenthood for one year and divert that spending to other women’s health programs.” The bill passed 240-189. HR 3762, Vote #568, 10/23/15; Washington Post, 10/23/15] Voted For Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015. On September 18, 2015 Hurd voted in favor of the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015 which “prohibits, for a one-year period, the availability of federal funds for any purpose to Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc., or any of its affiliates or clinics, unless they certify that the affiliates and clinics will not perform, and will not provide any funds to any other entity that performs, an abortion during such period. The restriction will not apply in cases of rape or incest or where a physical condition endangers a woman's life unless an abortion is performed.” The measure passed the House, 241 to 187, but was not taken up by the Senate. [H R 3134, Vote #505, 9/18/15; Congress.gov Summary, 9/18/15]

6.7 Million American Women Rely On Public Programs To Pay For Contraceptives, 2.4 Million Of Them, 36 percent, Do So Through Planned Parenthood. “Planned Parenthood is, without a doubt, one of the largest providers in this space: Of the 6.7 million women who rely on public programs to pay for contraceptives, 2.4 million of them — 36 percent — do so at Planned Parenthood's 817 clinics across the country.” [Vox, 7/22/15] Most Of Planned Parenthood’s Public Funding Goes To Providing Low-Income Women With Family Planning Services, Including STD Screenings And Contraception. “Planned Parenthood receives more than $500 million annually in government funding, mostly through Medicaid and grants. Most of this money goes toward providing low-income women with family planning services like STD screening and contraceptive coverage.” [Vox, 7/22/15] FactCheck.org: “Abortions Represent 3 Percent Of Total Services Provided By Planned Parenthood.” “Abortions represent 3 percent of total services provided by Planned Parenthood, and roughly 10 percent of its clients received an abortion. The group does receive federal funding, but the money cannot be used for abortions by law.” [FactCheck.org, 4/18/11] Hurd Argued That At Least 38 Other Underfunded Community Health Centers In The 23rd District Would Fill The Gap Left By Planned Parenthood. “There are at least 38 underfunded community health centers in the 23rd Congressional District that provide quality women’s health care.

These clinics would put that funding to much better use than the one Planned Parenthood in the district, without sacrificing women’s access to care.” [Hurd.House.Gov, 9/18/15] Voted Against Preventing Attempt To Defund Planned Parenthood Voted Against Preventing Attempt To Defund Planned Parenthood. In September 2015, Hurd voted against a motion that “shields American women’s access to lifesaving health care services from Republicans’ attempt to defund Planned Parenthood by protecting any organization that provides women’s health services, such as preventive care and cancer screenings, from being stripped of vital federal resources to serve America’s families.” A yes vote was a vote against defunding Planned Parenthood. The resolution failed, 183 to 245. [H.R. 3134, Vote #504, 9/18/15; Democratic Leader – Motions To Recommit, 9/18/15] Voted For FY 2016 Budget Repealing The Affordable Care Act, Revoking Improved Coverage For Maternity Care, Cancer Screenings, And Contraceptives While Allowing Gender Rating Voted For FY 2016 Republican Budget To Repeal The Affordable Care Act, Slash Pell Grants And Alter Medicare. In March 2015, Hurd voted for the FY16 Republican House which included “repealing the Affordable Care Act. Under budget rules, that reconciliation repeal bill cannot be filibustered in the Senate and would need only a majority vote to pass.” The resolution passed 228 to 199. [H. Con Res. 27, Vote #142, 3/25/15; New York Times, 3/25/15] NWLC: House GOP Budget Would Revoke Improved Coverage For Maternity Care And Preventative Services, Would Allow Insurers To Treat Being A Woman As A Preexisting Condition. “The Price budget would:... Repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), including the tax credits that 5.4 million women currently use to purchase health coverage, and the Medicaid eligibility expansion that provides health insurance to millions more. The budget plan would also revoke improved coverage for maternity care and preventive services, including birth control, and allow insurance companies to once again treat being a woman as a pre-existing condition.” [National Women’s Law Center, 3/18/15] Budget Would Let Insurance Companies Drop Coverage For Life-Saving Cancer Screenings Including Mammograms. The ACA “requires insurers to cover mammography, with no costsharing, every one to two years for women starting at age 40. Medicare fully pays for mammograms once every 12 months with no upper age limit.” [FactCheck.org, 10/21/13] Budget Would Let Insurance Companies Drop Coverage For Birth Control, Including The Pill.

The Kaiser Family Foundation reported on the ACA “the new law requires most private plans to cover all forms of prescription birth control (but not all brands) without any co-pay. Women with Medicaid also get birth control covered without cost-sharing.” [Kaiser Family Foundation, 10/14/13] Budget Would Let Insurance Companies Charge Women More Than Men For The Same Insurance. “The Affordable Care Act eliminates the discrimination that women have faced when buying insurance. For years, insurance companies may have charged women up to ten times more for their insurance than they charged men…Under Obamacare, insurance companies can no longer use gender as a factor when setting premiums.” [Washington Post, 9/30/13] Repealing the ACA’s Ban on Gender-Rating Could Cost Women Close To A Billion Dollars Each Year. ”Based on an average of currently advertised premiums and the most recent data on the number of women in the individual health insurance market, the practice of gender rating costs women approximately $1 billion a year.” [National Women’s Law Center, March 2012] Repealing ACA’s Gender-Rating Ban Would Discourage Companies From Hiring Women.

“Gender rating also occurs in the group market, where businesses with predominately female workforces are routinely charged more for group coverage.” [National Women’s Law Center, March 2012] Voted For Restricting A Woman’s Right To Choose After 20 Weeks, Establishing A 48-Hour Waiting Period For Rape Survivors Voted For Restricting A Woman’s Right To Choose After 20 Weeks, Including Requiring 48-Hour Waiting Period For Rape Survivors. In May 2015, Hurd voted for “a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy in a party-line vote on Wednesday.” According to The Hill, “But the bill did not change a provision that allows victims of incest to receive an abortion only if they are under 18 years old … The new version of the House bill also includes a two-day waiting period for rape victims. Doctors must also ensure that victims have received medical treatment or counseling during that time.” [HR 36, Vote #223, 5/13/15; The Hill, 5/13/15; The Hill, 5/11/15]

Voted For Blocking Consideration Of The Paycheck Fairness Act

Voted For Blocking Consideration Of The Paycheck Fairness Act. In April 2015, Hurd voted for blocking consideration of the Paycheck Fairness Act, a bill that would end the pay gap between men and women and unsure equal pay for equal work. “The legislation would protect workers from retaliation for sharing information about their wages, require employers to explain any pay disparities among workers performing the same job, and allow employees to seek unlimited punitive damages in wage bias cases.” The previous question passed 239 to 183. A vote against the previous question would have allowed the bill to be considered. [H. Res. 189, Vote #148, 4/14/15; Bloomberg, 4/14/15; Congressional Record, 4/14/15; Democratic Leader – Previous Questions, 4/14/15]

Voted For Blocking Consideration Of The Paycheck Fairness Act

Voted For Blocking Consideration Of The Paycheck Fairness Act. In April 2015, Hurd voted for blocking consideration of the Paycheck Fairness Act, a bill that would end the pay gap between men and women and unsure equal pay for equal work. “The legislation would protect workers from retaliation for sharing information about their wages, require employers to explain any pay disparities among workers performing the same job, and allow employees to seek unlimited punitive damages in wage bias cases.” The previous question passed 240 to 183. A vote against the previous question would have allowed the bill to be considered. [H. Res. 200, Vote #154, 4/15/15; Bloomberg, 4/14/15; Congressional Record, 4/15/15; Democratic Leader – Previous Questions, 4/15/15] Voted Against Motion That Would Have Protected “Women’s Rights To Equal Wages” By Excluding Claims Of Employment Discrimination From Bill Voted Against Motion That Would Have Protected “Women’s Rights To Equal Wages,” By Excluding Claims Of Employment Discrimination From Bill. In September 2015, Hurd voted against on Democratic motion to recommit with instructions HR 758. “The Democratic Motion to Recommit protects women’s right to demand equal wages, by excluding claims of employment discrimination from the underlying bill that raises new obstacles for Americans to seek remedy in the courts.” The motion to recommit failed 179 to 239. [HR 758, Vote #500, 9/17/15; Democratic Motion to Recommit, HR 758, 9/17/15] September 2015: Had A 100 Percent Score From National Right To Life September 2015: Had A 100 Percent Score From National Right To Life. “A pro–life conservative, Hurd has a 100 percent score with National Right to Life for his voting record in the 114th Congress.” [The Winkler Post, 9/18/15] Voted For Limiting Women’s Access To Reproductive Services Voted For Bill Blocking Federal Funding For Abortion, Including Tax Credits For Small Businesses Providing Healthcare That Includes Abortion Coverage. In January 2015, Hurd voted for the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, which restricted federal funding for abortions and abortion coverage. “The House did easily pass H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2015, sponsored by Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.). White House advisers said they would recommend a veto should the bill reach the president’s desk. The Hyde Amendment already prevents the use of federal funds to pay for abortion, except in cases of incest, rape and life endangerment of the mother. That is passed every year as part of an appropriations bill, but this bill would make that permanent law. The House bill would also restrict small businesses from getting an Affordable Care Act tax credit if they purchase employee health plans that include abortion coverage on the Small Business Health Options Program, or SHOP exchange.” [HR 7, Vote #45, 1/22/15; Politico, 1/22/15] Bill Would Give Big Insurance Companies Incentive To Drop Abortion Coverage. “The bill gives insurers a big incentive to drop abortion coverage from their plans, or risk losing the large pool of consumers who receive the law’s subsidies. Abortion coverage is historically relatively ubiquitous in health plans, so the effect could be far-reaching.” [National Journal, 1/28/14] Voted For Establishing Select Committee To Investigate Fetal Tissue Donation In Reponse To Edited Planned Parenthood Videos Voted For Establishing Select Committee To Investigate Fetal Tissue Donation. In October 2015, Hurd voted for a bill that would “establish a select investigative subcommittee under the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The panel would be responsible for investigating and reporting on issues related to fetal tissue donation, fetal tissue procurement, federal funding for abortion services, and lateterm abortions.” The bill passed 242-184. [H Res 461, Vote #538, 10/07/15; CQ Floor Votes, 10/07/15] Select Committee Targeting Planned Parenthood Given Broad Jurisdiction To Investigate Abortion Practices, Including Recommendations To Change Abortion Laws. Although the select committee was formed in response to videos edited to implicate that Planned Parenthood sold fetus tissue for profit, “[t]he words ‘Planned Parenthood’ do not appear in the resolution establishing the special committee. Its jurisdiction is considerably broader, encompassing ‘medical procedures and business practices used by entities involved in fetal tissue procurement’ and ‘any other relevant matters with respect to fetal tissue procurement.’ It also permits the committee to probe the subject of federal funding for abortion providers generally, the practices of providers who perform abortions in the second and third trimesters, and ‘medical procedures for the care of a child born alive as a result of an attempted abortion.’ The committee is also empowered to recommend changes in laws or regulations based on its findings.” [Washington Post, 10/07/15; USA Today, 10/07/15] Voted For Blocking Consideration Of Bill Making It Easier For States To Defund Planned Parenthood.

Voted For Blocking Consideration Of Bill Making It Easier For States To Defund Planned Parenthood. In September 2015, Hurd voted for motion to order the previous question (thus ending debate and possibility of amendment) on the rule (H Res 444) that would provide for floor consideration of the bill (HR 3495) that would amend title XIX of the Social Security act to allow states to exclude medical providers who perform abortions from the state's Medicaid contracts. The motion was agreed to 243-182. A vote against the previous question would have allowed the bill to be considered. [H Res 444, Vote #521, 9/29/15; CQ Floor Votes, 9/29/15]

Voted For Bill Making It Easier For States To Defund Planned Parenthood

Voted For Bill Making It Easier For States To Defund Planned Parenthood. In September 2015, Hurd voted for a bill that would amend title XIX of the Social Security act to allow states to exclude medical providers who perform abortions from the state's Medicaid contracts. The bill would expand the exceptions for which a state is not required to provide Medicaid reimbursements, allowing states to deny non-abortion health care reimbursements to medical providers such as Planned Parenthood. The bill passed by a vote of 236-193. [HR 3495, Vote #524, 9/29/15; CQ Floor Votes, 9/29/15] Voted Against Adding Exception To Anti-Choice Bill To Protect The Health Of The Woman Voted Against Adding Exception To Anti-Choice Bill To Protect The Health Of The Woman. In May 2015, Hurd voted against adding a woman’s health exception to a 20-week abortion bill. “U.S. Rep.

Julia Brownley’s attempt to amend a bill calling for a ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy was defeated Wednesday, and the House went on to pass the ban. The Westlake Village Democrat’s motion and amendment would have added language to the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act that would have permitted abortions after 20 weeks if a woman’s health were at risk. It was defeated on a mostly party-line 181-246 vote.” [H.R. 36, Vote #222, 5/13/15; Ventura County Star, 5/13/15]

Voted Against Protecting Women’s Medical Privacy

Voted Against Prohibiting Violation Of Medical Privacy Regarding Choice Of Health Insurance Coverage, Including Coverage For Victims Of Rape Or Incest. In January 2015, Hurd voted against a motion to recommit that would prohibit any violation of the medical privacy of a woman regarding her choice of health insurance coverage, and in particular the very sensitive privacy needs of those who are victims of rape and incest. In contrast, the underlying bill goes so far as to restrict a woman’s own private funds under her health insurance coverage for abortion services. [HR 7, Vote #44, 1/22/15; Democratic Leader – Motions to Recommit, 1/22/15] Voted For Repealing Of DC Law Banning Discrimination Based On Contraception Usage.

Voted For Repealing DC Reproductive Health Non Discrimination Act. In February 2015, Hurd voted for repealing the action of the District of Columbia Council in approving the Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Amendment Act of 2014. “The resolution disapproves, and thereby effectively repeals, the District of Columbia’s Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Amendment Act of 2014, which is intended to ensure that individuals are protected from discrimination by an employer because of the individual’s or family member’s ‘reproductive health decision’ -- including use of contraception or the planned or intended initiation or termination of a pregnancy.” The bill passed 228 to 192. [HR 596, Vote #194, 4/30/15; CQ House Action Report, 4/29/15] Voted Against Exempting Federal Protections Against Sexual And Domestic Abuse From Additional Legal Challenges Voted Against A Motion Exempting Federal Protections Against Sexual And Domestic Abuse From Weakening Provisions. In February 2015, Hurd voted against a motion that would “recommit the bill to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee with instructions to report it back immediately with an amendment that would limit the provisions of the bill from affecting federal regulations concerning victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.” HR 50 itself “would expand and modify the 1995 Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (PL 104-4) that requires all federal agencies to consult with the private sector when developing rules...

NRCC: “Does Pete Gallego Agree Energy Costs Should ‘Necessarily Skyrocket’?” TITLE: “Does Pete Gallego Agree Energy Costs Should ‘Necessarily Skyrocket’?“ DATE: 6/26/13 Obama: Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.

V/O: That was Obama’s promise. Now he’s making it come true with new regulations imposed on the American public directly by the President.

Obama: Electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.

I’m trying to sign up for the new government healthcare program and it just won’t work.

WOMAN 2: A lot of folks are having trouble with that. They spent millions of our tax dollars to build it, and it won’t work. And if you’re facing all these issues just signing up, imagine how difficult it could be to get medical care. Finding a doctor’s appointment will be a nightmare. And have you looked into how much your insurance premiums will rise?

1: I haven’t. May I’ll call my congressman, Pete Gallego, and ask for help.

2: He’s part of the problem. Gallego voted to keep special subsidies for members of congress.

2: Yup. Pete Gallego is using our tax dollars to fund his healthcare benefits.

1: That’s not right.

2: Typical Washington. Gallego protect his healthcare while our costs go up.

1: Maybe you should call him too.

2: Oh I will. We all should. Call Pete Gallego at 210-927-4592. Tell him we’re sick of paying for his taxpayer funded healthcare.

National Republican Congressional Committee: “Gallego Defends Obama, Not Texans” National Republican Congressional Committee “Pete Gallego Defends Obama, Not Texans” 07/30/14 0:50 TRANSCRIPT VOICEOVER: During one of the worst crisis we have seen at our border in decades, Barack Obama came to Texas.

But instead of visiting the border, Obama was there to raise money for Democrats like Pete Gallego.

Another Democrat Congressman even admitted that Obama risks a “Katrina moment” by not visiting the border, but Pete Gallego defended him, saying Obama’s visit to the border would be a “photo op” and an “unneeded distraction.” While thousands of children are flooding the border in a growing crisis, Pete Gallego is more concerned with protecting the President and playing politics than fixing the problem.

That’s Pete Gallego: ready to defend Obama, refusing to stand up for Texans.

National Republican Congressional Committee: “Gallego Needs to Go” National Republican Congressional Committee “Gallego Needs to Go” 9/18/14 0:30 TRANSCRIPT V.O.: Just days before Congressman Gallego got elected, experts made a prediction. One hundred and seventeen thousand new jobs for South Texas. Engineering jobs, trucking jobs, waitress jobs, office jobs.

Maybe your next job. But Barack Obama is slamming the brakes on our energy economy. And Congressman Gallego is helping him do it. Gallego voted against drilling on government land. Against the Keystone Pipeline. Gallego needs to go.

National Republican Congressional Committee: “Service” National Republican Congressional Committee “Service” 10/14/14 0:30 TRANSCRIPT RICK PERRY: TV ads coming out of Washington attack Will Hurd on veterans’ issues. I don’t like it when outsiders mess with Texas, so I want to set the record straight. Will Hurd spent almost a decade as an undercover officer for the CIA. He served in the Middle East, stood brave in the face of terrorism. He knows the price of freedom. Will Hurd stands behind the people who serve America. Now I know about service to our country, and you can count on Will Hurd.

2010 TX-23 Congressional Campaign “Frontlines” Uploaded to YouTube by TexansforWillHurd 2/04/10 0:32 V/O: In dark alleys across the world, and on the front lines of the War on Terror, the brave men and women of the CIA look the enemy in the eyes as they protect America. After courageously serving for nine years, one of them, Will Hurd, returns home to run for Congress. With the steely resolve he learned in the CIA, Will Hurd will take on reckless government spending and an extreme liberal agenda. He’ll demand an accountable government that creates new jobs. Principled and strong leadership. Will Hurd for Congress.

Hurd’s 2015 Representational Allowance Is $1,258,008 Hurd’s 2015 Representational Allowance Is $1,258,008. [Statement Of Disbursements Of The House, Part 3 Of 3, 4/27/15] Established Office In Texas A&M-San Antonio Facility Established Office In Texas A&M-San Antonio Facility. “Freshman U.S. Rep. Will Hurd, R-San Antonio, has established an office in the Patriots’ Casa, a move some consider a benefit to the university while others say it’s an unusual situation. The Patriots’ Casa is a two-story, 20,000-square-foot facility, open to all students, faculty and staff. The facility offers support and assistance to military and veteran students transitioning to college life. Hurd’s staffers said the congressman of Texas’ 23rd Congressional District will most likely work in the office one week each month. Staff at the A&M-San Antonio office include at least one full-time staffer during operating hours. Policy advisors and political analysts said they were surprised to learn that an elected public official was leasing space at a university supported by public tax dollars. While he’s not breaking any federal laws, the move is unusual because the rented space is in a Texas A&M University-San Antonio facility.” [The Mesquite: The Texas A&M-San Antonio Student Newspaper, 5/20/15]

Chief Of Staff Stoney Burke Is Former Lobbyist, Former Democrat

Chief Of Staff Is Former Lobbyist, Former Democrat. “Sometimes personal friendships drive a shift back into the public sector. Such was the case for former Democratic aide Stoney Burke, who became the chief of staff for GOP Rep. Will Hurd (Texas), Burke said. ‘Will and I go back a long way,’ Burke said in an emailed statement. ‘We met when I was in high school and we first worked side-by-side in student government at Texas A&M.’ Burke had also worked for former Rep. Chet Edwards (D-Texas) from 2006 to 2008. ‘Having grown up in west Texas, it’s an incredible opportunity to again work alongside my good friend and deal firsthand with the issues that impact the area I have always called home,’ he said. At his post as a lobbyist at utility giant Southern Co., Burke earned about $258,678. He now makes roughly
