HOUSE VOTE DESCRIPTIONS

1. HR 26: ANTI-WORKER REINS ACT

This pro-business legislation hurts consumers by protecting corporate greed and creating a chilling effect on the creation of new public and worker safeguards.

2. HR 10: WEAKENING CONSUMER AND FINANCIAL PROTECTIONS

This pro-Wall Street bill would make it easier for big banks to take advantage of consumers and make the country more vulnerable to economic downturn, threatening retirement savings.

3. HR 1180: GUTTING OVERTIME PAY FOR WORKERS

This corporate-driven bill would make it harder for workers to keep their earned overtime pay.

4. HR 3354: EROSION OF WORKERS RIGHTS

This bill would gut funding for worker training, clean water and education, and make it harder for workers to join a union and collectively bargain.

5. HJ RES. 37: CONTRACTORS NOT HELD TO FAIR WAGES

This legislation rolled back common sense rules that require government contractors to pay fair wages and provide good working conditions. As a result, U.S. tax dollars can be used to support bad employers.

6. HJ RES. 83: OSHA RECORDKEEPING ROLLBACK

This ill-conceived law gutted OSHA recordkeeping rules that helped make workplaces safer. Big employers in hazardous industries will now only need to keep their records for six months to avoid penalties eliminating any long term records of health and safety violations.

7. HR 1628: UNDERMINING AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE

This legislation would have eliminated healthcare coverage for 22 million people and would have made it easier for insurance companies to charge higher premiums based on health, gender, or pre-existing conditions. It also weakens the funding and stability of Medicare.

8. HR 5: STALLING WORKER RULES THAT SUPPORT HEALTH AND SAFETY

This bill creates new red tape that would make it more difficult to stop abusive employers and mitigate workplace health and safety standards.

9. HJ RES. 111: LIMITING CONSUMERS RIGHT TO SUE

This legislation allows banks to continue to include arbitration clauses in contracts, which would prevent consumers from being able to sue over unscrupulous bank practices.

10. H CON. RES 71: FEDERAL BUDGET CUTS TO MEDICAID AND MEDICARE

The House Republican budget dramatically favors corporations and the wealthy over working people by cutting $1.5 trillion from Medicare and Medicaid while cutting taxes for millionaires by hundreds of thousands annually.

11. HR 3441: PRO PERMATEMP MEASURE

This bill would make it easier for employers to hire temporary workers and deny workers the right to organize.

12. HR 1: TAX CUT GIVEAWAY TO BILLIONAIRES AND MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS

This law eliminates key deductions for working people, and cuts healthcare and other low- and moderate-income programs, while cutting the corporate tax rate and encouraging outsourcing. According to the Tax Policy Center, by 2027, more than 80 percent of the total gains will go to the top 1 percent.
