“In order to hold their elected officials accountable, Texas constituents need to know how their Representative or Senators voted,” said AFP-TX State Director Peggy Venable. “The AFP Scorecard is the best way for our activists to keep a close eye on Washington, and confront them when they don’t vote responsibly.

The 112th Congress Scorecard includes critical votes on such issues as the repeal of President Obama’s new health care law, preempting EPA’s purported authority to regulate greenhouse gases, Chairman Paul Ryan’s budget, ending ethanol subsidies, several Congressional Review Act resolutions to overturn new regulations, and the fiscal year 2012 appropriations bills.

Eighteen Representatives and 1 Senator received a perfect 100 percent, earning an A+ score on the AFP Scorecard. Twenty-one Representatives and 1 Senator received a 0 percent, earning an F.
