Republican Pat Tiberi, elected in 2000, is one of Speaker John Boehner’s closest allies and has reaped the benefits of that association by swiftly ascending on the powerful House Ways and Means Committee.

The son of Italian immigrants, Tiberi (TEE-berry) grew up in Columbus and graduated from The Ohio State University. He worked as a real estate agent and then as an assistant to Republican U.S. Rep. John Kasich (now governor) for eight years. He recalled to The Columbus Dispatch that Kasich won him over by blasting AC/DC’s hard rock on the car radio. “I thought, ‘Man, this guy listens to the same music, and he’s a Republican congressman,’” Tiberi said. “It broke my entire image of what a Republican congressman is.”

Kasich helped Tiberi win a seat in the state House, where he became majority leader and supported business-friendly legislation and tort law changes. In 1999, Kasich, then chairman of the Budget Committee, announced his retirement from the House. Tiberi won support to replace his mentor from most of the Republican establishment and from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. He faced a noisy but not very effective primary challenge from state Sen. Gene Watts, who sought to rally conservatives. Tiberi won 73%-21%.

The resounding victory gave him a big boost heading into the general election against Maryellen O'Shaughnessy, a Democratic Columbus City Council member. She had a compelling personal story as the single mother of a 10-year-old son. Tiberi played up his Columbus roots and his membership in the Ohio State marching band and held O’Shaughnessy responsible for negative Democratic Party ads that labeled him a defender of insurance companies on the issue of affordable prescription drugs. This was one of the most-watched House races in the nation that year. With campaign help from Kasich, Tiberi won 53%-44%.

In the House, Tiberi’s voting record has been faithfully Republican but slightly less conservative since his party reassumed control of the House. He was one of only seven Republicans to vote against denying federal funding for National Public Radio in 2011, and in 2012, he refused to go along with House-passed amendments to bar federal funding for political science research and to reduce money for renewable energy projects. Earlier, he was a sharp critic of the 2010 health care overhaul, but supported expansion of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program. He also supported a Democratic overhaul of food safety laws in 2009 and, at Boehner’s urging, backed the final version of the Troubled Asset Relief Program in 2008 after initially opposing it.

Tiberi took over the chairmanship of Ways and Means’ Select Revenue Subcommittee in 2011 and pledged to join Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich., in working to scrap the income tax code and replace it with a simpler version. As Republicans sought ways to reduce gun violence in schools after the December 2012 elementary school massacre in Newtown, Conn., Tiberi came up with a novel proposal: He introduced a bill to encourage off-duty police officers to serve as substitute teachers by giving them a break on their income taxes.

Befitting his background as a former congressional aide, Tiberi has acquired a reputation as an effective behind-the-scenes operator. He was the campaign manager for Boehner’s successful bid for majority leader in early 2006, and he later helped Boehner fix organizational problems at the National Republican Congressional Committee. He and Oklahoma Republican Tom Cole served as vote-counters for Washington’s Cathy McMorris Rodgers, another favorite of Boehner’s, in her successful November 2012 bid to chair the House Republican Conference.

Tiberi had easily won reelection in spite of his old district’s narrow partisan balance. His ties to Boehner were rewarded during redistricting after the 2010 census; Ohio Republicans in charge of the process gave his district “the most dramatic partisan makeover in the state,” according to The Cook Political Report, with the Democratic portions around Columbus shifted elsewhere. In the redrawn 12th, Tiberi easily beat Democrat Jim Reese with 63% of the vote.

Back to top NJ Vote Ratings

National Journal’s rating system is an objective method of analyzing voting. The liberal score means that the lawmaker’s votes were more liberal than that percentage of his colleagues’ votes. The conservative score means his votes were more conservative than that percentage of his colleagues’ votes. The composite score is an average of a lawmaker’s six issue-based scores.

Interest Group Ratings

The vote ratings by 10 special interest groups provide insight into a lawmaker’s general ideology and the degree to which he or she agrees with the group’s point of view. Two organizations provide just one combined rating for 2011 and 2012, the two sessions of the 112th Congress. They are the ACLU and the ITIC. About the interest groups.
