The Republican Liberty Caucus has published its annual liberty-focused scorecard for the U.S. House.
The Liberty Index scores Republican members of Congress on 20 pivotal bills/votes from 2022 that either advance liberty or diminish liberty. For information on the bills selected, see the bill explanations on pages three and four of the document.
A green number one indicates that the Representative voted with the RLC on that bill. A red number zero indicates the Representative voted against the RLC position on that bill. “NV” means the Representative was absent and did not vote. Absences are scored the same as a vote against the RLC position. “NA” means the Representative was not in office at that time. Members of Congress who were not in office the full year were only scored on votes during their tenure.
The Liberty Score is obtained by calculating the percentage that a Representative votes in line with the RLC. For example, the highest possible Liberty Score is 100. This is achieved if a Representative voted with the RLC 100% of the time.
A high score on this scorecard does not equate to an automatic endorsement from the RLC. This scorecard simply evaluates the voting record of each Republican member of Congress during the 2022 calendar year.
Congratulations to Congressmen Andy Biggs, Dan Bishop, Thomas Massie, Chip Roy and Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, who each earned a perfect score of 100 on the 2022 Liberty Index!
