Heritage Action Announces Legislative Scorecard

Today, Heritage Action formally announced the creation of a legislative scorecard.

Roll Call’s headline was simple and to the point: Heritage Advocacy Arm Tells Members: We’re Watching

Below is the text of a letter from Heritage Action’s CEO Michael A. Needham that our government relations team sent to the Hill:

In order to maximize the ability of Heritage Action for America to highlight the important legislative activities and decisions made by our lawmakers, and to provide the best information to our members and activists, Heritage Action is announcing the creation of a legislative scorecard.

 

Heritage Action for America is committed to building an America where freedom, opportunity, prosperity and a civil society flourish.

 

Heritage Action’s mission statement will guide our decision-making process and we will do our absolute best to provide advance notice of those decisions.  However, we reserve the right to key vote legislative activities after the fact; including several votes already cast in the 112th Congress.

 

From time to time, we may choose to include other legislative activities in our scorecard. Again, we will do our absolute best to provide advance notice with these items.

  3. Great idea. The biggest challenge we have is letting the politicians know we have not gone back to sleep; we are awake and watching! The dashboard will help do that.

  5. It looks as if the so-called elected people in the SENATE have let their things that hang between their legs DISAPPEAR. I guess that the people in JAPAN have it BETTER then we have because their leaders are taking care of them the way that HELPS not HENDERS the people.
    DO WE HAVE TO HAVE A NUCLEAR EXPLOSION
    to get all of your attentions? Time to WAKE UP and do what WE THE PEOPLE HAVE ASKED YOU TO DO FOR US.

  7. Another good step to help us be well informed. You may want consider adding a recommendation to our Congressional Leaders – I am adding this to all my letters,phone calls and emails “Do not forget; you have Suponea Power. Use it”
    Thanks Again Heritage

  11. Feet to the Fire or FTTF is an organization born in North Carolina that does just that. Good or bad, we let them know that we are watching and what we think. We’re told it’s working. Kudos!

  13. This is just their opinion of what happens in Congress. Doesn’t mean it is right or wrong, just simply their own opinion. So, everyone is going to let some group tell them what is good or bad?

  14. My rep, Mo Brooks dist 5 AL, is a new and spinless member of congress. I have already informed him that I will work to see that he will face a primary opponet. Thanks for your efforts Heriaige.

  15. here in MO the TYCOA legislative committee reviews every piece of legislation which achieves the third read and passed stage. We have a set of 8 criteria questions which require the legislation to be constitutional in order for it to be scored as such. Never in the two years that we have been doing this has one political party been any where near as dominate as this score card is. Why don’t they just call it the republican review.
