Voting Index

Freedom Index: A Congressional Scorecard Based on the U.S. Constitution.
This voting index is currently published twice a year in The New American magazine. Each index scores all 535 members of Congress on 10 key votes on a scale of 0% to 100%. The more the Representatives and Senators adhere to the Constitution in their votes, the higher their scores on this index.

Mark your calendar! There’s a new threat to our national independence and prosperity.  It’s the U.S.-China Governors Forum scheduled for July 15-17 in Salt Lake City and held in connection with an annual conference of the National Governors Association (NGA).

The John Birch Society (JBS) has just released a new 12-minute video on YouTube, "Beware of Con-Cons: State Legislators Warn Against a Constitutional Convention."

Yesterday the Oklahoma House of Representatives issued a press release, "Ritze Seeks Nullification of ObamaCare," which stated: "State Rep. Mike Ritze has filed legislation to effectively nullify the new federal health care law and allow felony charges against individuals attempting  to enforce it in Oklahoma."

The "Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act," H.R. 2, repeals the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act," Public Law 111-148, and the "Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010," Public Law 111-152, known collectively as ObamaCare. That's it. No replacement, period. It just repeals the entire ObamaCare law.
