Congressional Scorecards

Each year the Club for Growth publishes a Congressional Scorecard that tracks how members of Congress vote on economic legislation.  Throughout the year, the Club for Growth issues Key Vote Alerts urging Representatives and Senators to vote in favor of economic policies that strengthen our nation’s economy and shrink the size of the federal government.  Similarly, Key Vote Alerts are issued when it is imperative that lawmakers strike down legislation that will raise taxes, increase harmful regulations, and grow our already massive government.  At the end of the year, the Club for Growth Foundation conducts a study of how members of Congress voted on key issues, including the Club’s Key Vote Alerts, and ascribes a score.  The Club shares this congressional scorecard with Club members, the press and with the public.  It rewards free-market champions and exposes big-government, tax-and-spend politicians.
