Marco Rubio earns perfect score from the American Conservative Union

in Uncategorized by

The American Conservative Union (ACU) announced today that Marco Rubio’s voting record earned him a perfect “100”  based on its 2011 Congressional Scorecard. This puts Rubio among just nine Senators with a score of 100 and earned him the title of “Defender of Liberty.”

In their analysis, ACU included “the votes to repeal President Obama’s job-killing health care law, to halt the Environmental Protection Agency’s burdensome regulations, against raising the debt limit in the absence of comprehensive fiscal reforms, and in favor of a pro-growth trade agreement with Colombia, among other key votes.”

Following this announcement, Rubio said, “I ran for the U.S. Senate promising Floridians that I would stand up to Washington’s reckless spending and its assault on the free enterprise system. I made clear promises that I would support conservative alternatives to restore fiscal discipline and promote our free enterprise system, and I’m pleased that the groups entrusted with holding me and my colleagues accountable are validating my fulfillment of those promises.”
