Florida Congressional District 15 race: Dennis Ross vs Jim Lange on issues

Dennis Ross will win the race. It’s a strong Republican district, once sending Adam Putnam to Washington.

That said, Ross is a pro-NSA voting for HB 1560. FreedomWorks noted:

While this bill is intended to make information sharing on cyber threats easier, it also sacrifices many privacy protections in the process. The bill fails to ensure that companies and government agencies are not sharing personally identifiable information when they report cyber attacks. Worse, the bill requires that cyber threat information be shared with the NSA. Although well-intentioned, the privacy loopholes in this bill turn in from a “cybersecurity” bill to a “cybersurveillance” bill.

 

Justin Amash fans would point to the Amendment: H.Admt. 713 to H.R. 702 – To remove additional Maritime Security Fleet funding

This amendment by Rep. Justin Amash would remove the section of the bill that would provide $500 million in new spending for the Maritime Security Fleet program. This new spending, while a relatively small amount was quietly added into the bill without any vote, ignoring the amendment and committee process. This spending represents a shallow attempt to court a narrow special interest group to gain votes for the bill – essentially violating the House ban on earmarks.

Ross voted no.

Ross likes to spend money HIS WAY, backing bill funding projects, like the Omnibus Bill, even voting to some cuts in spending.

Lange doesn’t offer much appeal for conservatives, Constitutionalists or Liberatarians. Ross is more of a McCain Rhino than a Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Amash or even Mark Sanford Republican.
