Jul 23, 2014 by AFP

Rep. Tom McClintock:

                Americans for Prosperity is dedicated to promoting economic freedom for America. We believe that liberty and the freedom to operate businesses and create jobs is the path forward for America’s economy. In keeping with this principle, we have created our AFP scorecard, a ranking for politicians based on key votes concerning economic freedom. Each of these blog posts details one representative or senator who has achieved the highest score, a 100, over his or her career in politics. These individuals through their dedication to liberty, economic freedom and a strong economy have helped create opportunities for millions of Americans and brightened all our futures.

Hailing from California’s 4th district, Tom McClintock is a staunch defender of economic liberty and has consistently voted to protect his districts businesses and citizens. He voted for the REINS act limiting government overreach and for the Scaliese Anti-Carbon Tax Ammendment which lessened the impact of the EPA’s power grab on the economy. Here is a breakdown of his key votes and why they helped advance economic freedom: click here

This individual has truly earned their 100 rating on our AFP scorecard. They have been dedicated to freedom from day 1 and their voting record proves it. We are proud to award them this distinction and hope they continue to promote the great ideas which have fought back against government overreach and allowed their districts economies to flourish.
