Again, Why Are We Testing the Waters in the Desert?

Voting Record Revealed for Las Vegas, Nevada Congressional District 1 US Rep

The current Las Vegas District 1 US Representative lost election in US District 3 and filled the seat of a US Senator candidate from District 1 who lost election. 

As we show here with actual objective voting records, the current Las Vegas District 1 US Representative did not protect, reflect or represent the majority of Constituents. 

Recent political campaigns used special interest money to buy Funny House Mirrors with Shameful Emotional Knee-jerk Smears in Media Campaign Pieces and Sound Bites. 

Most voters prefer to know actual voting records of representatives, so we can elect the best government advocate for our future, one who actually upholds our Constitutional Oath to "We The People":

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."

The current US Rep in Nevada District 1 represented Nevada District 3 just two years from 2009 to 2011, before losing re-election in 2010 to Joe Heck.

This former US Rep sat out two years, retired from school with a six-figure buyout, then claimed the District 1 Seat vacated by Shelley Berkley when she lost the Nevada Senate Race to Dean Heller in 2012.

District 1 is conventionally considered a safe Democrat District, with 2.29 times as many active registered D's as R's:

The current Las Vegas Nevada District 1 US Rep's voting record defines them as a big government Democrat.

This is at a time when government is broken, serving special interests, borrowing funny money and raising taxes on current and future generations to stay in business.

The current Las Vegas US Representative made two recent Aye votes on Helium that failed to rise, and one Nay vote on a Helium Bill that passed gas. (Helium was a hot air topic in DC):

When we add Independent, Libertarian, Non-Partisan and Other registrations that actually vote when they have a real candidate, the D ratio falls to 1.14 times as many D's as other parties.  

2014 is a winnable issue-driven race.

We learned working successful races for various parties since 1970, that while the numbers are interesting, they are not persuasive or compelling. 

Committed Heart, Mind, Money, Principle and Soul win elections.

A modern Thomas Jefferson or Teddy Roosevelt can unite many votes from dissatisfied members of the incumbent's party, as well as the other parties, to win one for the American people.

Our economy continues to contract with 10% real 1980 measured inflation and 23% real unemployment, for a record 33% Misery Index:

There will be a lot of dissatisfied voters in 2014, willing to elect new representation, instead of endure more of the same old:

The current US Congressional District 1 officeholder has two years and four months of Congressional Voting Records for Las Vegas voters to verify and vet BEFORE we vote smart for our best interests in 2014.

Working backward from now to then, here are key Las Vegas US Rep issues and votes by the incumbent (before the DC Helium vote):

April 18, 2013HR 624Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection ActBill Passed - House
(288 - 127)
This bill had so many violations of Bill of Rights, Constitutional Civil Liberty protections and confidentiality, that the President and 11 citizen advocate groups advised it be vetoed. 

Not many people like the idea of government espionage on American citizens with a cellphone and internet kill switch controlled by government. 

Yet the Las Vegas District 1 US Rep voted for it:

April 15, 2013HR 249Federal Employee Tax Accountability Act of 2013Bill Failed - House
(250 - 159)
More than 100,000 Federal Employees now owe more than $1 Billion in unpaid federal taxes. 

This bill would have fired seriously tax delinquent government employees to open jobs for more productive and responsible workers.

Yet the Las Vegas District 1 US Rep voted against it:

April 12, 2013HR 1120Preventing Greater Uncertainty in Labor-Management Relations ActBill Passed - House
(219 - 209)
This bill enjoyed up to 86% support among small business employers, workers and voters put out of business and pocket by Obamacare red tape and other tax hikes. 

Yet the Las Vegas District 1 US Rep voted against it:

This concurrent House resolution with the Senate joined the first Senate Budget Bill passed in four years. 

It affected budgets and taxpayers as far out as 2023. 

Yet the Las Vegas District 1 US Rep voted against it:  

March 21, 2013HR 933Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013Concurrence Vote Passed - House
(318 - 109)
This budget bill included an anonymous rider that generated significant anger over the "Monsanto Protection Act."

Voter anger grew like Roundup(R)-resistant crop weeds, fueled by news the rider was anonymously added to a U.S. budget bill as an apparent favor to certain biotech firms whose name began with MON.

The measure made allies of Tea Party and environmental groups. 

It inspired more than 250,000 people to sign a petition opposing it. 

It even prompted the head of the Senate Appropriations Committee to retroactively disavow it. 

Yet the Las Vegas District 1 US Rep voted for it:

March 15, 2013HR 803SKILLS ActBill Passed - House
(215 - 202)
This bill was introduced and sponsored by Joe Heck, the Las Vegas US Rep in District 3 who retired the current Las Vegas US Rep in District 1 in 2010. 

It reauthorized the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA), consolidating 35 existing federal employment and training programs into a single $6 billion Workforce Investment Fund.

It particularly addressed Adult and Family Literacy to create lifelong Work Skills to put unemployed Americans back to work. 

The SKILLS Act was supported by up to 75% of voters and more than 11 grassroots organizations:

It is curious a UNLV educator, whose tenure was bought out with $162,000 of taxpayer money to run for Congress again, after losing her seat, opposed SKILLS for the people:

March 13, 2013HR 890Preserving Work Requirements for Welfare Programs Act of 2013Bill Passed - House
(246 - 181)

In 1996 President Clinton kept his 1992 campaign promise to end welfare as we know it. 

He required people on welfare to go to work to get off welfare. 

Since then the welfare government bureaucracy backslid under three Presidents into a magnet for illegal immigrants getting free rides at taxpayer expense and displacing American workers. 

Up to 96% of voters supported Work for Welfare. 

Yet the Las Vegas District 1 US Rep voted against it:

March 6, 2013HR 933Department of Defense, Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013Bill Passed - House
(267 - 151)
This bill funded domestic government military weapons and propaganda for unpopular attacks on Americans and Iran.

Journalist Joe Wolverton II noted the 2013 NDAA House version did nothing to prevent the indefinite detention of Americans under the 2012 NDAA:

"It only reiterated that habeas corpus is a right in courts established under Article III of the ConstitutionThat such a right exists in the courts of the United States was never the issue." 

The concern of millions of Americans from every band in the political spectrum is that Americans detained as “belligerents” under the terms of the NDAA will not be tried in Article III courts, but will be subject to military tribunals governed by Article I, such as the one currently considering the case of the so-called “Gitmo Five.”"

Some of these are the same military tribunals that ignored, condoned or even committed sexual harassment.

How could a female professor of political science, who won election as US Rep and then lost it for ignoring the will of the people, pass this?:

Feb. 15, 2013HR 273Eliminates the 2013 Statutory Pay Adjustment for Federal EmployeesBill Passed - House
(261 - 154)

Up to 83% of voters supported legislation to put Federal Employees on a pay freeze until Congress balances the budget.

They wanted Congress to stop raising debts and taxes faster than economic and population growth, putting more and more working Americans in the poorhouse.

So why did this Las Vegas District 1 US Rep vote against that common sense legislation?:

Jan. 15, 2013H Amdt 4Offsets Cost of Disaster Relief Appropriations Through Discretionary Budget CutsAmendment Rejected - House
(162 - 258)

One of voters' biggest complaints since 1776 is taxation without representation. 

Congress claimed to cut spending and taxes. 

Congress actually continued to increase debts, regulations, spending and taxes on taxpayer backs, wrecking our economy. 

This public employee Las Vegas District 1 US Rep refused to cut the budget on a discretionary basis, leading to the sequester mess.

Jan. 15, 2013HR 152Disaster Relief Appropriations Act, 2013Bill Passed - House
(241 - 180)
Hurricane Sandy disaster relief was another feel-good bill that professional politicians love to pass.

They never seem to accept responsibility when they fail. 

As of today Drudge Report found "6 Months After Sandy, Thousands Still Homeless...Looters STILL Raiding Homes Under Repair...'Where are the politicians now?'

Up to 84% of voters opposed this bill that the Las Vegas US Rep in District 1 passed:

Dec. 21, 2010HR 2751FDA Food Safety Modernization ActConcurrence Vote Passed - House
(215 - 144)
You would have to be blind, deaf, dumb or taking money from Monsanto to not know how destructive the anti-freedom monopoly unconstitutional FSMA was to consumers, farmers and home gardeners. 

We are now forced to buy and eat factory GMO food without knowing what's in it. 

The FSMA drove farmer's markets, lemonade stands and raw milk producers out of business or put them in jail. 

Yet the Las Vegas District 1 US Rep passed it: 

Dec. 16, 2010H Amdt 786Amending the Estate TaxAmendment Rejected - House
(194 - 233)
This bill raised Estate Taxes 28% to 45% on estates over $1.5 Million. 

(One of these days it may cost a million to make a phone call unless Congress puts our financial house in order.) 

45% Estate Taxes further deplete America of family farms and small businesses that create jobs. They force distress sales and loss of up to 45% of family assets and income at a time of deep sorrow and need. 

A Professor of Political Science, Las Vegas US District 1 Rep, apparently did not feel it, see it, need it or vote that way:

Dec. 8, 2010HR 5281DREAM ActConcurrence Vote Passed - House
(216 - 198)
The law of unintended consequences, sometimes called blowback, can be a beast. Up to 60% of Americans opposed the DREAM Amnesty Act for illegal aliens. 

Americans and Nevadans, even those close to borders overrun by illegals, are not against responsible legal immigration and assimilation. 

The melting pot made America Great. 

The majority of Americans do not support free rides for illegal immigrants who displace American workers and ruin prosperity with more government spending and taxing for illegal votes with lower wages to the global poverty level. 

The Governor of Nevada neighbor Arizona opposed the DREAM Act as a budget buster.

DREAM, in reality a nightmare amnesty bill passed as a feel-good measure, put the higher costs of illegal immigration onto states like Nevada and taxpayers by making illegals legal for additional government spending to buy political party votes.

You might think a bright Professor of Political science turned Las Vegas US Representative opposed this, as most legal workers and voters in the district did, but no:

July 27, 2010H Con Res 301Directing the President to Remove Armed Forces from PakistanJoint Resolution Failed - House
(38 - 372)
Anyone who survived the Vietnam War quagmire and the longer more costly Afghanistan-Pakistan military adventurism fiasco, or who knows the Pat Tillman Story, is in favour of cutting out-of-control spending for seemingly endless wars of aggression on foreign countries with abundant natural resources like gold, opium, petroleum and water. 

Not the US Rep from Las Vegas District 1, where thousands of disabled vets still do not receive the benefits and medical care they were promised for service to their country:

March 21, 2010HR 3590Health Care and Insurance Law Amendments ("Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act")Concurrence Vote Passed - House
(219 - 212)
March 21, 2010HR 4872Health Care Reconciliation ActBill Passed - House
(220 - 211)

In 2010, calls to Congress ran 100 to 1 and higher opposed to Obamacare death panels, healthcare controls, mandatory insurance fines with prison, medicare shutdowns, red tape, special interest waivers, with trillions of dollars of higher taxes, 20,000 more IRS agents and government control of the economy.

Yet the current Las Vegas District 1 US Rep ignored her constituents in District 3 and voted for it anyway. 

Up to 86% of voters and many states oppose 0Care as a big expensive painful government intrusion into our health, liberty and lives. 

Perhaps this is why the Nevada District 1 US Representative was defeated and replaced in the 2010 Congressional election. 

It's not too late to do it again:

There are many more voting record examples showing this US Rep did not represent the simple will of the people and common sense, but voted lockstep with her party special interests.

While serving House Speaker Nancy <You have to pass it to see what's in it> Pelosi, did she actually read the long secret bills before she voted for them? 

In the interest of brevity with internet attention spans rather than sound bites, we refer avid readers and motivated talented Richard Charles Volunteers for America to this link for the rest of the voting record story:

We welcome the opportunity to debate this US Las Vegas Nevada District 1 Representative in an objective forum.

Isn't it time for a US Rep of, by and for the people, instead of the usual special interests?

To make that possible, we invite funding under $100 from as many Richard Charles Volunteers for America as possible. 

Here's the basic math:

To match the US Congressional District 1 Las Vegas Nevada Representative's 2012 campaign chest of $1,300,000: 

13,000 committed Americans give $100

26,000 give $50

52,000 give $25 

130,000 give $10 

for the Constitutional candidate to represent All Las Vegans, Nevadans and Americans, not just the usual special interest suspects:

By the way, here is a breakdown of the current Las Vegas District 1 US Representative donors, many of them lobbyists:

We do not accept political contributions from special interest lobbyists.

There are 143,635,167 Americans in our workforce. 

There are 21,550,169 actual unemployed Americans who deserve better representation and are willing to give, work and vote for it:

Nevada has record foreclosures and unemployment.

There are 1,302,562 active voters in Nevada who want better representation as they showed in the last election.

There are 257,797 active voters in Las Vegas US Congressional District 1, more than enough to make a big difference for a more Constitutional America:

Again, we do not accept donations from special interest lobbyists. 

Ten dollars from each active voter will turn the tide for a better America faster than the usual special interest suspects.

One of our first steps, if/when we have the campaign chest to run, is to accept more dedicated volunteers and register more active voters:

Richard Charles => 
Real Candidate => 
Real Choice => 
Respect Constitution => 
Represent Constituents=>

We know we can do a better job than the current US Rep only with your help and support.
