Unlike many of his colleagues in the freshman class, Schweikert has stood by his Tea Party principles in his first year in Congress.  He has voted for almost every spending cut, has cosponsored all of the conservative bills, and has voted against most of leadership’s odious spending bills.  He opposed the debt ceiling deal, but like most members, voted for the original debt deal that contained a balanced budget amendment.  While many freshmen folded under the pressure from leadership, Schweikert was actually removed from the Whip team because of his conservative dissent.
