Created by the Republican Liberty Caucus, the 2021 Liberty Index is a liberty-focused legislative scorecard for the U.S. House and U.S. Senate. The Liberty Index scores Republican members of Congress on 20 pivotal bills/votes from 2021 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 we selected, see the bill explanations on page three of the document.

A green number one indicates that the Representative/Senator voted with the RLC on that bill. A red number zero indicates the Representative/Senator voted against the RLC position on that bill. “NV” means the Representative/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 Representative/Senator votes in line with the RLC. For example, the highest possible Liberty Score is 100. This is achieved if a Representative/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 member of Congress during the 2021 calendar year.

Congratulations to Senator Rand Paul, Senator Mike Lee, and Congressman Thomas Massie for earning perfect scores on the 2021 Liberty Index!
