THE SPENDING CUT SCORECARD
(Last updated on July 9, 2012)

METHODOLOGYThis scorecard includes 45 votes on amendments offered in the House to cut spending.  Click here to see a description of each vote.  The Club for Growth position is a “YES” on each of these 45 votes, and each one is weighed equally.  The overall score for each Member is listed below.  Some Members were not present for each vote, so a ratio of their YES votes compared to the total number of votes they cast are listed in the “Ratio” column.  This is an ongoing scorecard - future votes will be added if they are considered on the House floor.  There are 432 House Members listed on this scorecard because 2 House seats are currently vacant, and as Speaker of the House, John Boehner does not typically vote on amendments.
