Guys a clown. Talks about climate change yet owns a ton of stock in a petroleum refining company. Guys worth millions of dollars yet takes tax payer money. You fan boys are getting played like always.

BigBob

yes And as usual you lie - why do you constantly do that? Senator Kelly makes the majority of non-Senate earnings through book royalties and speaking engagement. As to his petro stock Kelly also owned stock in Valero Energy Corp., a petroleum refiner, worth $1000 or less. He had recent income from it worth at least $5,000.

If that chaffs your butt then this must really pi$$ you off - Republicans, who oppose legislation to cut down on fossil fuel-driven pollution, have nearly twice as much money invested in fossil fuel interests as Democrats. GOP members of Congress own over $60.4 million in fossil fuel stocks, while Democrats and an independent who caucuses with the Democrats own up to $32.3 million.

Republican Rep. Michael McCaul of oil-rich Texas is Congress’ biggest fossil fuel investor, owning between $8.2 million and $19.1 million worth of stock in oil, gas, and coal interests. His stock holdings include Berkshire Hathaway (over $2 million), which owns natural gas and coal businesses, Anadarko Petroleum (as much as $500,000), oilfield services company Schlumberger (up to $395,000), and Vanguard Energy ETF (between $3 million and $11 million), a mutual fund that is invested in oil companies such as ExxonMobil, Chevon, and ConocoPhillips.

Fellow Texas Republican Rep. John Carter owns between $1.1 million and $5.3 million worth of stock in ExxonMobil, which is headquartered just north of Carter’s 31st Congressional District. Carter is by far the biggest congressional investor in ExxonMobil.

Overall, members of Congress from Texas have the most fossil fuel stock. Twelve Texas representatives (10 Republicans and four Democrats) and one senator, Republican Ted Cruz, have between $14.5 million and $35 million invested in the oil, gas, and coal industries.

Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-Mont.), a former tech executive, has over $4.8 million in fossil fuel stocks. With an estimated net worth of $136 million, he is the richest member of Congress. Gianforte filed scans of his investment account statements with the House Clerk’s office, so his investment totals are exact amounts, not ranges. His biggest fossil fuel investment, nearly $675,000, lies with Chevron.

Talk about low-life's stealing from the taxpayers.

Wrong sec report shoes 15,000. Now you get it look how all of them are playing us.

As usual your full of Rhetoric, short on facts:

Introduced the fewest bills compared to All Senators

Kelly introduced 0 bills and resolutions in the 116th Congress. View Bills »

Compare to all Senate Freshmen (0th percentile); Senate Democrats (0th percentile); All Senators (0th percentile).

Got their bills out of committee the least often compared to All Senators

Most bills and resolutions languish in committee without any action. Kelly introduced 0 bills in the 116th Congress that got past committee and to the floor for consideration.

Compare to all Senate Freshmen (0th percentile); Senate Democrats (0th percentile); All Senators (0th percentile).

Got bicameral support on the fewest bills compared to All Senators

The House and Senate often work on the same issue simultaneously by introducing companion bills in each chamber. 0 of Kelly’s bills and resolutions had a companion bill in the House. Working with a sponsor in the other chamber makes a bill more likely to be passed by both the House and Senate.

Compare to all Senate Freshmen (0th percentile); Senate Democrats (0th percentile); All Senators (0th percentile).

Companion bills are those that are identified as “identical” by Congress’s Congressional Research Service.

Cosponsored the fewest bills compared to All Senators

Kelly cosponsored 28 bills and resolutions introduced by other Members of Congress. Cosponsorship shows a willingness to work with others to advance policy goals. View Cosponsored Bills »

Got the fewest cosponsors on their bills compared to All Senators

Kelly’s bills and resolutions had 0 cosponsors in the 116th Congress. Securing cosponsors is an important part of getting support for a bill, although having more cosponsors does not always mean a bill will get a vote. View Bills »

Was most present in votes compared to All Senators

Kelly missed 0.0% of votes (0 of 45 votes) in the 116th Congress. View Kelly’s Profile »

Compare to all Senate Freshmen (0th percentile); All Senators (0th percentile).

Joined bipartisan bills the most often compared to All Senators

In this era of partisanship, it is encouraging to see Members of Congress working across the aisle. Of the 28 bills that Kelly cosponsored, 71% were introduced by a legislator who was not a Democrat. View Cosponsored Bills »

Compare to all Senate Freshmen (90th percentile); Senate Democrats (98th percentile); All Senators (99th percentile).

Only Democratic and Republican Members of Congress who cosponsored more than 10 bills and resolutions are included in this statistic.

Got influential cosponsors the least often compared to Senate Democrats

0 of Kelly’s bills and resolutions in the 116th Congress had a cosponsor who was a chair or ranking member of a committee that the bill was referred to. Getting support from committee leaders on relevant committees is a crucial step in moving legislation forward.

Compare to all Senate Freshmen (0th percentile); Senate Democrats (0th percentile); All Senators (0th percentile).

Wrote the fewest laws compared to Senate Democrats (tied with 1 other)

Kelly introduced 0 bills that became law, including via incorporation into other measures, in the 116th Congress. Keep in mind that it takes a law to repeal a law. Very few bills ever become law.

Compare to all Senate Freshmen (0th percentile); Senate Democrats (0th percentile); All Senators (0th percentile).

The legislator must be the primary sponsor of the bill or joint resolution that was enacted or the primary sponsor of a bill or joint resolution for which at least about one third of its text was incorporated into another bill or joint resolution that was enacted as law, as determined by an automated analysis. While a legislator may lay claim to authoring other bills that became law, these cases are difficult for us to track quantitatively. We also exclude bills where the sponsor’s original intent is not in the final bill.

Committee Positions

Kelly held a leadership position on 0 committees and 0 subcommittees, as either a chair (majority party) or ranking member (minority party), at the end of the session. View Kelly’s Profile »

Havasu News... I find your polls silly. Do you actually think the people here would be pleased with any Democrat? Perhaps, they like Sinema at the moment, but when she comes up for reelection they will vote against her here in droves. I think you over estimate the ability of the people in Havasu to be objective. Their nothing more than

Republican drones.

deaton

Finally Twit, something I can agree with “they like Sinema at the moment, but when she comes up for reelection they will vote against her here in droves.” You got that right! 32.3% approve??? Who are these people? [thumbdown][ohmy][sad] Deaton

Too old for this

The sudden appearance of a daily poll does seem like a waste of space to me, too. Not just the ones about politicians, but all of them. Why can't we get more news? Every story on the front part of the website is repeated at least twice in the later pages. I doubt that they print the same story several times in the real paper, so why do they do it to us?

A lot of mornings are just boring on the TNH site. There is little to do other than try to pick on Moore for awhile. If he was to grow up, or die, there would be so much less stuff to laugh at.

deaton

Oh look, BigBob compiled a huge list of bogus “Mark Kelly” accomplishments. Wow, BigBob I thought your were ignoring me? I posted at 1:42 pm and you spent until 4:32 pm putting together this long boring stack-o-lies, that absolutely no one will actually read, well except for the upper class Twit and HavasuMoron [batman]? Happy to see you’re still paying attention BigBob/RobertsonO. [thumbup][tongue][love] Deaton

Too old for this

Most of those are fluff and nothing more. Do you expect us to believe that he came up with these "bills" on his own and didn't just pass along some lobbyists requests? He needs to go back to the moon or somewhere he can do some good.

HavasuGuy

Too Old - BigBob just shared the facts, why don’t you share what McSally did for Arizona taxpayers? Nothing, right?

Yesman123

Haha you worship your government. Clown.

You worship your government. Do as you are told and pay me.

I see a majority agree with my vote! What’s to be happy about with Senator Kelly, the guy has been all but invisible since being elected? At least Senator Sinema is holding up the “Progressive destruction of America”! I’m just glad he doesn’t have five more years to do nothing and will face Arizona voters in 2022. The best part is BigBob/RobertsonO will be gone to “parts unknown” since he got the “Boot” and won’t be voting for this do nothing again. [thumbup][whistling][tongue][beam] Deaton
