In March 2019, Toomey was one of 12 Republican senators to vote to block Trump’s national emergency declaration that would have granted him access to $3.6 billion in military construction funding to build border barriers.

In December 2019, Toomey said that it was not worth discussing whether to impeach Trump after he tried to extort the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, by demanding that Zelensky start a criminal investigation of Vice President Joseph Biden or at least falsely announce an investigation was underway of Trump’s false allegation that Biden engaged in corruption in Ukraine. “Where is the crime?” said Toomey at a Republican fundraiser. Earlier Toomey had described Trump’s attempt to force Zelensky to make false allegations about the Democratic presidential candidate as “errors of judgment”. Toomey had harsher words for House Democrats, accusing them of “disgracefully breaking with” bipartisan precedent on impeachment inquiries. Later that month the House impeached Trump on multiple charges, including abuse of power in the attempted extortion of Zelensky. Even after Trump was impeached Toomey continued to insist that his offenses were “not impeachable”, and opposed hearing from any witnesses at Trump’s trial. “We should move as quickly as we can to get this thing over with, get this behind us,” Toomey said, adding, “Even if someone believes that everything John Bolton says is going to confirm what’s charged in these articles, it’s still not impeachable.” (The New York Times reported that Bolton had written in his forthcoming book that Trump had told him in August 2019 that he wanted to continue freezing the Ukraine aid until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats, including the Bidens.) Along with all but one of the other Republican senators, Toomey voted against convicting Trump on the two articles for which he had been impeached by the House.

In April 2018, Toomey was one of eight Republican senators to sign a letter to United States Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin and acting Secretary of State John Sullivan expressing “deep concern” over a report by the United Nations exposing “North Korean sanctions evasion involving Russia and China” and asserting that the findings “demonstrate an elaborate and alarming military-venture between rogue, tyrannical states to avoid United States and international sanctions and inflict terror and death upon thousands of innocent people” while calling it “imperative that the United States provides a swift and appropriate response to the continued use of chemical weapons used by President Assad and his forces, and works to address the shortcomings in sanctions enforcement.”

In January 2018, Toomey was one of 36 Republican senators to sign a letter to Trump requesting that he preserve the North American Free Trade Agreement by modernizing it for the economy of the 21st century.

In November 2018, Toomey was one of 12 Republican senators to sign a letter to Trump requesting that the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement be submitted to Congress by the end of the month to allow a vote before the end of the year, as they were concerned that “passage of the USMCA as negotiated will become significantly more difficult” in the incoming 116th United States Congress.

In 2013, Toomey was one of 18 senators to vote against the bill to reopen the government during the United States government shutdown of 2013. Of his vote, he said: “The one major redeeming aspect of this bill is that it reopens the government … But I cannot support piling hundreds of billions of dollars of debt on current and future generations of Americans without even a sliver of reform to start putting our fiscal house in order.”

In 2013, in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, Toomey and Democratic Senator Joe Manchin introduced legislation that would have required a background check for most gun sales. The legislation failed, and failed again when it was reintroduced in 2015. In 2016, Toomey voted against a bill that would prohibit gun purchases by people on the no-fly list. Toomey opposed President Obama’s executive orders on gun control as contrary to the constitutional system of checks and balances, but believes Congress should pass background checks.

DeMint had previously expressed his intention to transfer the committee’s chairmanship to a member of the Republican 2010 Senate class.

Toomey was a leading sponsor of the JOBS Act, which passed the Senate in March 2012. The Act would reduce costs for businesses that go public by phasing in SEC regulations for “emerging growth companies” over a five-year period. It would also help startup companies raise capital by reducing some SEC regulations.

Toomey opposed the passage of the Medicare Prescription Drug Act, which he argued was fiscally irresponsible. His 2012 budget proposal called for turning Medicaid into a block grant to states and cutting federal funding for the program in half by 2021, which exceeded even the budget cuts proposed by Paul Ryan.

On August 11, 2011, Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell named Toomey to the United States Congress Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction. The committee’s duties included composing a package of spending cuts for submission to both Houses of Congress.

2010

A former Wall Street banker, Toomey narrowly lost the Republican primary for United States Senate in 2004. From 2005 to 2009, he served as president of the Club for Growth.

In his first term in Congress, Toomey took credit for getting $12 million in earmark spending for businesses in his district. In 2010 he claimed but provided no proof that he eventually ceased getting earmarks as a congressman, when as a Senate candidate he signed the “No Pork” pledge. In December 2011, Toomey and Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) introduced the Earmark Elimination Act of 2011. The bill failed, and failed again when it was reintroduced in 2014.

In January 2020 Toomey also signed an amicus brief urging the US Supreme Court to overturn several of its past rulings protecting abortion rights, including Roe v. Wade. When he first ran for Congress in 1998, Toomey said he believed abortion should be legal only in the first trimester.

2009

On April 15, 2009, Toomey announced his intention to again challenge Specter in the 2010 Republican primary.

On April 28, 2009, Specter announced that he was switching parties and would run as a Democrat, after polls showed him losing to Toomey in the primary. Specter’s withdrawal left Toomey as the front-runner for the 2010 Republican nomination. Both primaries were held on May 18, 2010.

Toomey publicly opposed the 2009 federal stimulus package. He opposes government-run or subsidized healthcare, and farm subsidies.

2004

In 2004, Toomey, challenged longtime incumbent Senator Arlen Specter in the Republican primary election. Aided by $2 million of advertising from the Club for Growth, Toomey’s election campaign theme was that Specter was not a conservative, especially on fiscal issues. Most of the state’s Republican establishment supported Specter, including Pennsylvania’s other U.S. Senator, Rick Santorum, and President George W. Bush. Specter defeated Toomey by 1.6 percentage points, about 17,000 votes out of over one million cast.

Toomey was also a supporter of the deregulation of the derivatives market, an area in which he had professional experience, stating that he believed the market to be adequately regulated by banking supervisors and state-level regulators. He pressed the House to pass the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000 because it would “eliminate most of the cloud of legal and regulatory uncertainty that has shadowed” derivatives since their invention. He stated that he hoped that the Senate would modify the bill to “allow greater flexibility in the electronic trading” of over-the-counter derivatives.

1999

Toomey served as the U.S. Representative for Pennsylvania’s 15th congressional district from 1999 to 2005. In the House, he distinguished himself as a fiscal expert. He pushed to decrease government spending and to set aside money for debt reduction.

Regarding deregulation of the financial services industry, Toomey said in 1999, “The trend in deregulation, beginning in the early 1980s, is one of the biggest reasons for the sustained economic expansion. I would like to see us continue to deregulate on many fronts, including the financial services industry.”

While serving on the House Banking Committee, in 1999 Toomey helped write House Resolution 10, which led to the repeal of parts of the Depression-era Glass-Steagall Act. The repeal of the Act, which had regulated the separation of banks and investment firms, allowed for companies that combined banking and investment operations.

1998
