It’s no secret that politicians often make promises on the campaign trail that never materialize once they arrive in Washington. Candidates often campaign on conservative principles but vote like liberals once they get to Washington.
This has been business as usual for far too long. That’s why Heritage Action for America was founded in 2010.
Heritage Action has developed the most effective and accurate congressional scorecard to help hold every lawmaker accountable to the conservative principles their constituents elected them to uphold.
By measuring votes, co-sponsorships, and other legislative activity, Heritage Action posts real-time updates to our scorecard and helps you see your congressman’s true colors and hold them accountable to their votes. Our scorecard has become a powerful tool on Capitol Hill: When we announce we’re scoring a vote, congressmen stop and take note, not wanting to hurt their Heritage Action grade. Just look at what some Congress members say about the power of our scorecard:
“[Heritage Action] is very knowledgeable about identifying pieces of legislation or bills that Republicans might support but conservatives would not,” said Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.)
“Heritage is really the only group that’s gotten down into the trenches,” said Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.)
Now is your chance to vote on the hot-button issues decided by Congress and find out if your congressman really represents your core principles. Take a walk in the shoes of your representative and cast your votes on real legislation to see how your results compare to your representative.
