American Conservative Union Announces 2011 Ratings of Congress

February 29, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) Chairman Al Cardenas today announced the 2011 ACU Ratings of Congress, the 41st edition of the conservative ratings guide. Since 1971, the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization has annually graded Members of Congress based on their votes on key conservative issues. The full 2011 ACU Ratings of Congress guide is now available online at conservative.org.

“With government growing faster than at any other time in the history of our country, the American Conservative Union continues to play a major role in giving the American people the tools they need to make informed voting decisions at every level of government,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “On behalf of our entire Board of Directors, I applaud and thank the many Senators and Representatives who achieved perfect or high scores on our 2011 ACU Ratings of Congress. Their unwavering commitment to our shared conservative principles stands in stark contrast to the liberals in Washington who continue to rubberstamp President Obama’s failed agenda for America.”

The ACU tracks a wide range of issues before Congress to determine which issues and votes serve as a clear litmus test separating those representatives who defend liberty and liberal members who have turned their backs on our founding principles – constitutionally limited government, individual liberty, free markets, a strong national defense and traditional values.

The votes selected by the ACU are not always considered the “most important” votes as defined by others, instead the votes selected are chosen to create a clear ideological distinction among those casting them. With its annual ratings, ACU’s mission is informing grassroots conservatives and the public – in an unbiased, transparent manner – on where individual members of Congress fall on the ideological spectrum.

The 2011 ACU Ratings of Congress includes scores for each individual member in both the Senate and the House of Representatives, a description of the votes scored in each Chamber and lists of members receiving special recognition as “Defenders of Liberty,” – those scoring a perfect 100 percent – or “ACU Conservatives” – those scoring 80 percent or higher. The full guide can be accessed and downloaded now at conservative.org.

The ACU recently announced its 2011 Ratings of Congress, the 41st edition of the conservative ratings guide. For more information on the ACU PAC or to download the full 2011 Ratings of Congress, please visit conservative.org.
