Issue Positions

For Presidential and Congressional candidates who refuse to provide voters with their positions, Vote Smart has researched their public records to determine their likely responses. These issue positions are from 2022.

  • "With the end of January marking the 43rd anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, protecting the lives of our most innocent has been on my mind a lot." (votesmart.org)
  • Rated 100% by National Right to Life Committee. (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • "The fact of the matter is Hillary Clinton is the wrong choice for our nation. A Supreme Court under Mrs. Clinton would be destructive to everything we hold dear in Alabama from protecting the rights of unborn children to our Second Amendment rights." (votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of HR 1- Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. (votesmart.org)
  • "After over 30 years, the day has finally come for this historic tax legislation to simplify our broken tax code. I was pleased the bill passed the House today with my strong support and look forward to seeing the relief it brings to hard-working families across East Alabama and America. The legislation will let Americans keep more of their hard-earned paychecks, will lower the corporate tax rate to make American businesses more competitive and will increase the Child Tax Credit. The bill also eliminates Obamacare's individual mandate so that families can have more freedom in their health care decisions." (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Rated 83% by National Tax Limitation Committee. (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • ""The legislation will let Americans keep more of their hard-earned paychecks, will lower the corporate tax rate to make American businesses more competitive and will increase the Child Tax Credit." #taxreform #AL03" (twitter.com)
  • Rated 10% by Alliance for Retired Americans. (votesmart.org)
  • Rated 0% by National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare. (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Voted against S 610 "Protecting Medicare and American Farmers from Sequester Cuts Act." (votesmart.org)
  • Voted against HR 1280 "George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2021." (votesmart.org)
  • Rated 100% by Center for Security Policy. (votesmart.org)
  • "I am grateful for the work by my colleagues in the House and the Senate to craft a bipartisan and bicameral NDAA that bolsters our national security and supports our troops. This bill will prepare our military to face the ever-growing threat of China by banning them from our American supply chain and modernizing our weapon systems. In addition, this bill blocks the left's attempt to push their social agenda through Congress by eliminating the provisions that would restrict the 2nd Amendment rights of servicemembers and require young women to register for the draft. It also prohibits the DOD from dishonorably discharging servicemembers who choose not to take the COVID-19 vaccine, requires strong accountability measures for the Biden Administration's debacle in Afghanistan, and provides a 2.7% pay increase for our brave servicemembers." (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of S 1605 "National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2022." (votesmart.org)
  • "The legislation will let Americans keep more of their hard-earned paychecks, will lower the corporate tax rate to make American businesses more competitive and will increase the Child Tax Credit. The bill also eliminates Obamacare's individual mandate so that families can have more freedom in their health care decisions." (votesmart.org)

  • Voted in favor of HR 1- Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. (votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of HR 266 "Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act." (votesmart.org)
  • "The Paycheck Protection Plan has provided a safety net during these unprecedented times for our small businesses!" (twitter.com)
  • "Today I voted for the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act. This bill will increase the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) by an additional $310 billion. This vital program has helped millions of American workers and businesses get much-needed financial assistance during these challenging times. This action should've been taken over two weeks ago when President Trump requested more money for the PPP, or it could've happened last week when the program ran out of money. Instead, Speaker Pelosi wasted time with her ridiculous partisan political games. She also played politics with $75 billion for hospitals, including $10 billion specifically for rural hospitals like the ones in my district that are in desperate need." (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Rated 0% by the National Education Association. (votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of HR 1119 - SENSE Act. (votesmart.org)

  • Rated 100% by the American Energy Alliance. (votesmart.org)
  • "I write to you today to express my constituency’s extreme frustration with your refusal to protect American energy independence. While you are in Europe touting your Green New Deal policies, gas prices and the cost of living here at home are sky rocketing. I represent a poor, rural Congressional district where increases in energy prices are effectively a tax on folks just trying to get by. From agricultural producers to school teachers to small business owners, my constituents’ cost of living is directly tied to gas and energy prices. With Thanksgiving and Christmas approaching, instead of focusing on making it easier on American businesses to simply exist, you are actively making it harder." (mikerogers.house.gov)
  • Voted in favor of HR 1119 - SENSE Act. (votesmart.org)
  • "Additionally, we must repeal and replace Obamacare and start to roll back some of the overly burdensome EPA and Dodd-Frank financial regulations that are destroying our economy. Only a Trump presidency can make these possible." (votesmart.org)
  • Rated 97% by Independent Petroleum Association of America. (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Voted against HR 2467 "PFAS Action Act of 2021." (votesmart.org)
  • "The fact of the matter is Hillary Clinton is the wrong choice for our nation. A Supreme Court under Mrs. Clinton would be destructive to everything we hold dear in Alabama from protecting the rights of unborn children to our Second Amendment rights." (votesmart.org)
  • "I am a staunch defender of the Second Amendment and will fight against Obama's liberal gun control proposals." (votesmart.org)

  • Despite exhaustive research, Vote Smart was unable to find information about this candidate's position.
  • Rated 93% by NumbersUSA. (justfacts.votesmart.org)

  • "I believe a nation that can't control its borders will lose its sovereignty. That's why I strongly support President Trump's border wall." (votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of HR 4760 "Securing America's Future Act of 2018." (votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of HR 3004 "Kate's Law." (votesmart.org)
  • "I applaud President Trump and Attorney General Sessions' decision today to end the DACA program. Despite former President Obama's reliance on executive orders to create unconstitutional immigrant amnesty programs, it is the Congress' constitutional duty to write laws. Before considering any immigration reform, Congress should first pass legislation to fund the Border Wall. Only after securing the border, can Congress in good faith address immigration reform." (votesmart.org)
  • Rated 93% by NumbersUSA. (justfacts.votesmart.org)

  • Rated 100% by Center for Security Policy. (votesmart.org)
  • "The president's announcement that he plans to bring to justice high-risk detainees is a positive step, but more action is needed by other nations to ensure the remaining fighters are not allowed to escape. The administration has indicated that the United States is willing and ready to provide support to these fighters' home countries, but we cannot address this challenge on our own. The approximately 50 nations who have resisted repatriation of their citizens must take them back and hold them accountable. Turkey must also take responsibility for its actions during this campaign, including the potential for prolonged regional instability and violence. The United States will remain steadfast in our commitment to combat terrorism worldwide." (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Voted against S J Res 68 "A joint resolution to direct the removal of United States Armed Forces from hostilities against the Islamic Republic of Iran that have not been authorized by Congress" (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • "The USMCA is a bipartisan agreement that would be a win for America! #USMCANow" (twitter.com)
  • ""I was thrilled to see this important piece of legislation finally be brought to the House Floor.

"In the State of Alabama, over 23,000 producers and manufacturers depend on this trade deal. "Alabama's economy will continue to soar under the USMCA, especially when it comes to our agriculture and automobile industries. I am pleased we finally got something done this Congress that will help folks across East Alabama and America."" (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of HR 5430 "United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement Implementation Act." (votesmart.org)
