AMERICANS FOR PROSPERITY RELEASES FEDERAL KEY VOTE SCORECARD FOR SOUTH CAROLINA DELEGATION
Greenville The South Carolina chapter of the free market grassroots group Americans for Prosperity (AFP-SC) is proud to present the South Carolina federal delegations score on its Key Vote Scorecard. The group rated the top free market votes from the 111th Congress in the U.S. Senate and U.S. House. AFP also included the No Climate Tax pledge in its scorecard for the first time, indicating the importance of AFPs opposition to using the climate change issue as a pretense to grow government.
We are proud of Congressman Joe Wilson for his perfect score, said Debbie Spaugh and Linda Weeks, Grassroots Co-Chairs of AFP-SC. We commend Senators DeMint and Graham for their high scores. Congressmen Brown, Barrett, and Inglis scored As, but are not returning to Congress. Our other two Congressmen, Spratt and Clyburn, earned the lowest score possible (0%), proving that we cannot count on them to support free market legislation. Congressman Spratt was defeated in the November 2010 election. Congressman Clyburn has returned to Washington.
