This two-term incumbent is among the most liberal members of the Republican conference. He is a major figure in the RINO Republican Main Street Partnership. Lance is avidly pro-abortion and was one of only 8 Republicans to vote for Cap and Trade in 2009. He is one of the most supportive Republicans of climate fascism and was one of the few members to vote against offshore drilling. He has never seen a bloated budget he didn’t like or a spending cut that he could support. He voted against every major effort to rein in big labor. The most egregious thing is that he sits on the Energy and Commerce Committee. Lance’s district has become more Republican, yet he has refused to move rightward.
Congressman Lance was one of 9 Republicans to oppose a commensese bill that would expediate the process for issuing permits for oil drilling.
