The Republican Liberty Caucus has published its annual liberty-focused scorecard for the U.S. Senate.
The Liberty Index scores Republican Senators on 20 pivotal bills/votes from 2022 that either advance liberty or diminish liberty. Green bills are pro-liberty bills supported by the RLC. Red bills are anti-liberty bills opposed by the RLC.
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 Senator voted with the RLC on that bill. A red number zero indicates the Senator voted against the RLC position on that bill. “NV” means the Senator was absent and did not vote. Absences are scored the same as a vote against the RLC position.
The Liberty Score is obtained by calculating the percentage that a Senator votes in line with the RLC. For example, the highest possible Liberty Score is 100. This is achieved if a Senator 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 Senator during the 2022 calendar year.
Congratulations to Senator Rand Paul for earning a perfect score of 100 on the 2022 Liberty Index! Senators Mike Lee and Mike Braun were also top scorers at 95.
