With the inability of Republicans in Washington to gain consensus on some key issues within their own ranks, you may be wondering how your elected officials vote when it comes to conservative values. According to Family Research Council Action’s Vote Scorecard for 2016, it was all or nothing for the majority of North Carolina’s 13-member congressional delegation when it came to support for conservative pro-family policies.
The Vote Scorecard provides a simple way to review how members of Congress voted on some key family issues during the 114th Congress. (To see how North Carolina representatives voted, select “North Carolina” on the scorecard.)
The following members of Congress who represent North Carolina received perfect scores of 100 percent on FRC Action’s scored votes in the U.S. Senate and U.S. House:
Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC)
Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC)
Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC District 5)
Rep. George Holding (R-NC District 13)
Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC District 8)
Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC District 10)
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC District 11)
Rep. Robert Pittenger (R-NC District 9)
Rep. David Rouzer (R-NC District 7)
Rep. Mark Walker (R-NC District 6)
Two members of North Carolina’s delegation received scores between 100 and 0 percent. Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC District 3) scored 92 percent and former Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC District 2) scored 90 percent.
On the other end of the spectrum, the three remaining members of North Carolina’s Congressional delegation received a score of 0 percent on FRC Action’s score card:
Rep. Alma Adams (D-NC District 12)
Rep. G.K. Butterfield (D-NC District 1)
Rep. David Price (D-NC District 4)
The Vote Scorecard gives a detailed overview of the 12 votes in the U.S. House and one vote in the U.S. Senate that were used to compile member scores. FRC Action considered how members voted on a variety of bills related to healthcare, school choice, religious freedom, and more.
We are grateful to Family Research Council Action for providing a helpful tool for reviewing how members of Congress vote on key issues that affect our families.
