Are you referring to American politics? "The representative" would seem to mean one representative in the House, but it could also mean the House itself. Is that exactly as the question is written?

Prevent? Only by voting against it, and being the last vote required to form a majority opposing it. He can delay it sometimes with various parlaimentary tactics, like proposing amendments that everyone hates, or raising points of personal privilege, or calling for the parlaimentarian to rule on this or that aspect of the rules governing debate. In the Senate he can filibuster, which roughly speaking means speak on the bill forever, but the House has limits on how long a bill can be debated, so that won't work.

Well, there isn't a lot a Representative can do on his or her own. The filibuster is not possible in the House like in the Senate, and there are over 500 Reps. so one is fairly powerless. Really, all a House Representative can do is debate an issue (trying to convince others) and vote.

Sorry, I'm thinking of the number in the Electoral College (election on the brain). That should say there are more than 400 Reps., not 500.
