WHY LUCAS?

Frank Lucas has a long record of voting against cutting spending. He has repeatedly voted against fiscally conservative budgets offered by the Republican Study Committee. He has a long list of votes against cutting wasteful pork projects and received a 6% and a 2% on the Club for Growth’s 2007 and 2009 RePORK cards, which tracked votes to cut wasteful earmarks. Along with his votes in favor of No Child Left Behind and his vote to raise the debt limit by trillions without budget reforms, it’s not surprising that Frank Lucas only voted for one out of 45 potential clean spending cut votes in 2012.


CHECK THE RECORD:

  • Voted to increase the debt ceiling by $2.1 trillion. (RCV #690, 2011)
