Welcome to MoCTrack for January 5, 2020.

This is our 2019 year in review for all of the tidbits you need about last year’s legislative action. Congress is heading back to DC this week, so now is the time to see how they did last year!
#MoCTrack 1/27…
The great folks at @538Politics provide our Trump Tracker numbers, showing how often each MoCs vote with #IMPOTUS.

We took all those 2019 numbers and show you each lawmaker’s high and low point, as well as their 2019 average.

#MoCTrack 2/27
@538politics First up a rundown of 2019 in legislation, by the numbers.
#MoCTrack 3/27
@538politics On the topic of those #McConnellsGraveyard bills stalled in the Senate, we go through the
⭐️top 10 most important and potentially impactful bills⭐️
that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is refusing to bring to the floor for votes.
#MoCTrack 4/27
@538politics Among those #McConnellsGraveyard bills we cover are:
It’s quite the progressive agenda!
#MoCTrack 5/27
@538politics We also run down all of #IMPOTUS45’s vetoes of 2019... including ones on the #FakeEmergency,
arms sales to #SaudiArabia,
and removing the US from entanglement in the hostilities in #Yemen.
#MoCTrack 6/27…
@538politics This year in review includes short recaps of legislative action for all 20 of our MoCs with the numbers of bills introduced and cosponsored, as well as passed bills and MoCTrack’s favorite (or least favorite) bill of 2019.
#MoCTrack 7/27
@538politics Here are some of the highlights (and, in sme cases, lowlights) from our twenty #Pennsylvania lawmakers…

HIGHLIGHT! PA’s @SenBobCasey introduced the United States Call Center Worker and Consumer Protection Act and it is great!
👍 👍
#MoCTrack 8/27…
@538politics @SenBobCasey #SanctuaryCities really bother @SenToomey, and he introduced an AWFUL bill to block federal grants to municipalities that refuse to act as deputies to #ICE & #CBP.
👎 👎 👎
#MoCTrack 9/27…
@538politics @SenBobCasey @SenToomey Despite the fact that #WhiteNationalism is at the root of growing levels of hate crimes and murders in our country, @RepBrianFitz of #PA01 has focused his attention on #Antifa and wrote a resolution to name them terrorists.
👎 👎 👎 👎
#MoCTrack 10/27
@538politics @SenBobCasey @SenToomey @RepBrianFitz #PA02’s @CongBoyle has put forth a lot of great bills this year, but #MoCTrack is a sucker for a bill with a clever name.

And Rep. Boyle gave us the STABLE GENIUS Act this year.
👍 👍 👍 👍
#MoCTrack 11/27…
@538politics @SenBobCasey @SenToomey @RepBrianFitz @CongBoyle #PA03’s @RepDwightEvans focused on #GunViolence and what the government can do to help victims. His Resources for Victims of Gun Violence Act (introduced with @SenBobCasey) is great,.
👍 👍 👍 👍 👍
#MoCTrack 12/27…
@538politics @SenBobCasey @SenToomey @RepBrianFitz @CongBoyle @RepDwightEvans We need to offer congrats to @RepDean of #PA04 for getting her Fostering Stable Housing Opportunities Act to pass the House. But we also LOVE her Undetectable Firearms Modernization Act.
👍 👍 👍
#MoCTrack 13/27…
@538politics @SenBobCasey @SenToomey @RepBrianFitz @CongBoyle @RepDwightEvans @RepDean Next up is #PA05’s @RepMGS, who takes on #studentdebt with her Justice for Student Borrowers Act. It stops big banks from forcing students into #forcedarbitration. Awesome bill!
👍 👍
#MoCTrack 14/27…
@538politics @SenBobCasey @SenToomey @RepBrianFitz @CongBoyle @RepDwightEvans @RepDean @RepMGS That government #Shutdown last winter was the worst, right?
#PA06’s @RepHoulahan thinks so too. She introduced The Shutdown to End All Shutdowns Act.
👍 👍
#MoCTrack 15/27…
@538politics @SenBobCasey @SenToomey @RepBrianFitz @CongBoyle @RepDwightEvans @RepDean @RepMGS @RepHoulahan #EarlyVoting was on the mind of #PA07’s @RepSusanWild. She introduced a bill to ensure that all states make early voting available for federal elections.
👍 👍 👍
#MoCTrack 15/27…
@538politics @SenBobCasey @SenToomey @RepBrianFitz @CongBoyle @RepDwightEvans @RepDean @RepMGS @RepHoulahan @RepSusanWild #PA08’s @RepCartwright is #UnionStrong and supporting the cause of #Labor!

He introduced a bill to ensure that public service employees in every state can negotiate for fair wages and working conditions.
👍 👍 👍 👍 👍
#MoCTrack 16/27…
@538politics @SenBobCasey @SenToomey @RepBrianFitz @CongBoyle @RepDwightEvans @RepDean @RepMGS @RepHoulahan @RepSusanWild @RepCartwright Next up is @RepMeuser of #PA09 who introduced his BASIC Act. It forces the CBO to inflate costs on ALL bills by adding to each the cost of serving the debt.
👎 👎
#MoCTrack 17/27…
@538politics @SenBobCasey @SenToomey @RepBrianFitz @CongBoyle @RepDwightEvans @RepDean @RepMGS @RepHoulahan @RepSusanWild @RepCartwright @RepMeuser #PA10’s @RepScottPerry introduced a bill related to #ClimateChange, the #EPA and #AirPollution.

He wants to 🛑STOP🛑 the @EPAgov from regulating when US emissions adversely affect other countries.

@538politics @SenBobCasey @SenToomey @RepBrianFitz @CongBoyle @RepDwightEvans @RepDean @RepMGS @RepHoulahan @RepSusanWild @RepCartwright @RepMeuser @RepScottPerry @EPAGov #PA11’s @RepSmucker wrote a bill about #Immigration and Visa overstays. It adds to the #GOP plan of creating an atmosphere of demonizing and othering immigrants.
#MoCTrack 19/27
@538politics @SenBobCasey @SenToomey @RepBrianFitz @CongBoyle @RepDwightEvans @RepDean @RepMGS @RepHoulahan @RepSusanWild @RepCartwright @RepMeuser @RepScottPerry @EPAGov @RepSmucker New MoC #PA12’s @RepFredKeller still managed to make time to introduce a law we HATE. His Eric’s Law (with @SenToomey) lets prosecutors empanel a 2nd jury if they can’t convince a first one to vote for the #deathpenalty.
👎 👎 👎
#MoCTrack 20/27…
@538politics @SenBobCasey @SenToomey @RepBrianFitz @CongBoyle @RepDwightEvans @RepDean @RepMGS @RepHoulahan @RepSusanWild @RepCartwright @RepMeuser @RepScottPerry @EPAGov @RepSmucker @RepFredKeller Distraction was the name of the game for #PA13’s @RepJohnJoyce. Because of the popularity of #LowerDrugPricesNow #HR3, Rep. Joyce introduced his own, crappier version so #GOP MoCs could pretend to support the issue.

#MoCTrack 21/27…
@538politics @SenBobCasey @SenToomey @RepBrianFitz @CongBoyle @RepDwightEvans @RepDean @RepMGS @RepHoulahan @RepSusanWild @RepCartwright @RepMeuser @RepScottPerry @EPAGov @RepSmucker @RepFredKeller @RepJohnJoyce @GReschenthaler @CongressmanGT #PA16’s @MikeKellyPA put out his own version of those detestable #RFRA laws (like that Pence one from Indiana), allowing agencies to discriminate against #LGBTQ people who want to #adopt or provide #Fostercare.
👎 👎 👎 👎 👎
#MoCTrack 24/27…
@538politics @SenBobCasey @SenToomey @RepBrianFitz @CongBoyle @RepDwightEvans @RepDean @RepMGS @RepHoulahan @RepSusanWild @RepCartwright @RepMeuser @RepScottPerry @EPAGov @RepSmucker @RepFredKeller @RepJohnJoyce @GReschenthaler @CongressmanGT @MikeKellyPA It’s another bill to help out #Labor. #PA17’s @RepConorLamb joined with @SenBobCasey to offer the Tax Fairness for Workers Act, which lets union dues and expenses to be treated as an above-the-line tax deduction.
👍 👍 👍
