Washington, D.C. – The Club for Growth Foundation released its 2022 federal economic scorecard. The scorecard analyzes the votes of each member, of both the House and Senate, on key pieces of free-market, limited government policy aimed at spurring economic growth.
The Foundation conducted a comprehensive examination of each lawmaker’s record on votes related to pro-growth policies and computed an Economic Growth Score on a scale of 0 to 100. A score of 100 indicates the highest support for pro-growth policies. Each vote or action in the rating is assigned a certain number of points depending on its relative importance. The Foundation’s study examined all 970 floor votes in the House (549) and Senate (421) and, in the end, included 14 House votes and 18 Senate votes. Absences are not counted, though the Foundation reserves the right to do so if, in its judgment, a Member’s position was otherwise discernible. Members who were not present for a sufficient number of votes were given an “N.A.” Years where members receive an “N.A.” do not impact their lifetime scores in the Foundation’s analysis. Scores cannot be directly compared between the two chambers, as different votes were taken in each body.
“By releasing our federal economic scorecard, the Club for Growth Foundation offers a behind the scenes look into how federally elected officials from every district in the country view pro-growth economic policy,” said Club for Growth Foundation President David McIntosh. “Our goal is to create a better informed population. By making the voting records of each member of the House and Senate widely available, Americans will have greater insights into where their members stand on boosting the economy.”
The federal economic scorecard, produced and distributed since 2005, has become the gold-standard in the publication of Congressional voting records.
