The National Federation of Independent Businesses, actually one of the very few conservative interests in Columbia looking out for the taxpayer, released their score card recently.
This time I got a hundred. I’m proud of this score, as my scores haven’t been perfect in the past mainly for lack of communication. For example, a previous version of “spending caps” didn’t get my vote because the extra money from the budget stabilization fund was sent to a capitol project fund, i.e. slush fund. In other words spending was not capped. The 2010 Senate version of spending caps send any extra cash to either debt or tax credits so I voted for it in 2010. There are other examples of scored votes that aren’t always accurate, but the NFIB does a good job. Here’s a link to the score card.
