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.

From Club Members

There IS a difference between the two parties --yes, they both leave a lot to be desired but still the difference is signifant. The problem is that you cannot trust the RNC, NRSC or NRCC  to allocate contributions on the basis of expressed Repub principles. So, along comes the Club for Growth PAC and solves that dilemma for those of us who want to support conservative/libertarian candidates but don't know who to trust. Great service for the future of freedom!
