Only 15% of Congress rate 100% on conservative family report card

Taking precedence over the 2022 congressional midterm elections, a new congressional report card from a leading conservative family group has revealed that only 79 of the 535 members of the House and Senate have a score of 100. % and more – 184 – a rate of 0%, the worst possible Goal.

the Concerned Women’s Legislative Action Committee for America plans to release its scorecard tomorrow and said the results show a radical shift to the left in the new Congress that arrived with liberal President Joe Biden.

“The radical left shift in Congressional priorities unfortunately once again reflects that elections have consequences,” said Penny Young Nance, CEO and President of CWALAC.

“In 2021, a new majority has taken power in Washington. Unfortunately, our legislative team had to spend the last year working to oppose the radical policies and extreme ideologies of the Democratic majority in order to uphold the values ​​of American women,” she added.

The band provided Secrets with a taste of their report card.

Like other groups’ scorecards, this one noted how members voted on key issues on the agenda of Concerned Women For America, a highly influential anti-abortion and pro-traditional family organization.

This is mission statement stated that it “protects and promotes biblical values ​​and constitutional principles through prayer, education and advocacy”.

It has seven main issues that it monitors for more than 500,000 members: “family, sanctity of human life, religious freedom, education, sexual exploitation, national sovereignty and support for Israel.” .

He scored 10 votes and positions that covered these issues to arrive at his ratings. Among the key votes were those addressing the so-called “wokes” and gender issues, pushing women into the draft, and legalizing marijuana.

Those with 100% scores were conservative Republicans and there were few surprises.

However, it gave beleaguered Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney 97% while some of her critics fell short.

For example, House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy got 93%, House GOP Whip Rep. Steve Scalise tied for 97%, and Rep. Elise Stefanik, who replaced Cheney as president of the House Republican Conference, got 88%.

Additionally, several of those endorsed by former President Trump have high or perfect scores of 100%, including Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs, Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, and Senator from Arkansas John Boozman.

Among the Democrats, there were also few surprises. Liberals such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez received a few points for breaking with Democratic leaders on a handful of issues. She received 13%.

The group said it found Republicans were more likely than Democrats to challenge their party line.

“We would much rather be on the side of promoting the freedoms that are the foundation of our great nation, and we are so grateful to all members of Congress who have fought to preserve those freedoms,” Nance said. “The limb scores reflect which side of the fracture they are on. Americans are eagerly awaiting the 2022 election to right the ship – the CWA Legislative Action Committee’s Congressional Scorecards will help voters make that choice,” she added.
