Public Presidential Campaign Financing Covered in NTUF Taxpayer’s Tab


Dan Barrett
October 14, 2010

Tab Insert

Springing forth from the successful BillTally Quarterly Report in Issue 14 of The Taxpayer’s Tab last week, NTU Foundation brings you brand new cost estimates in the traditional weekly format -- that's four bills introduced in the 111th Congress that would increase or decrease federal spending.

The most expensive bill of the week is a collaborative effort between pro-choice and pro-life caucuses in the House, to prevent unintended pregnancies and attempt to reduce the need for abortions. If enacted, the $3.9 billion first year cost would go towards state grants and programs supporting education and women’s health.

This week’s Taxpayer’s Tab details the following bills:

  • HR 3312, Preventing Unintended Pregnancies, Reducing the Need for Abortion, and Supporting Parents Act
  • S 3452, Valles Caldera National Preserve management Act
  • HR 775/S 535, Military Surviving Spouses Equity Act
  • HR 6061/S 3681, Presidential Funding Act

To supplement the large number of Military Surviving Spouses Equity Act cosponsors, the following is a breakdown by party and chamber.

  • House – 352 Congressmen in Support
    • 222 Democrats (87 percent of all Democrat Representatives)
    • 130 Republicans (73 percent of all Republican Representatives)
  • Senate – 60 Senators in Support
    • 40 Democrats (68 percent of all Senate Democrats)
    • 17 Republicans (41 percent of GOP Senators)
    • 2 Independents (100 percent of Independent Senators)*
    • 

* Senators Lieberman and Sanders caucus with the Senate Democrats.
