STEARNS SCORES 100% ON FREEDOM METER AND ON CHRISTIAN COALITION SURVEY
FOR REPUBLICANS “THE” VOTES THAT REALLY MATTER: FREEDOM AND FAMILY VALUES***
JULY 23, 2O12 – Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL) has scored a perfect 100% for the last two years on the FREEDOM METER, which is designed to show Americans where their elected officials stand on the important issues affecting our freedom. Stearns also scored a perfect 100% rating with the Christian Coalition on its 2012 Scorecard.
The FREEDOM METER is provided by ForAmerica, which has a mission to reinvigorate the American people with the principles of American exceptionalism: personal freedom, personal responsibility, a commitment to Judeo-Christian values, and a strong national defense. FOR AMERICA uses roll call votes in Congress for its rating, including repealing ObamaCare, supporting enforceable spending caps on the federal budget to restore fiscal responsibility, and opposing Obama’s “stimulus” legislation.
The Christian Coalition also rates the votes of members of Congress and gave Stearns a perfect score for opposing the repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in the Department of Defense, supporting an amendment to prevent tax dollars from paying for abortions or educating students on how to perform abortions in medical residency programs, and a bill preventing the National Labor Relations Board from ordering any employer – such as the case of the Boeing Company in Charleston, SC – to close, relocate, or transfer employment under any circumstance.
None of Stearns’ opponents have a record of fighting for freedom and family values and Oelrich earned an “F” rating from the Christian Coalition. They can only distort Stearns’ outstanding record of conservative leadership.
