Christian Coalition of America Announces Release of 2010 Congressional Scorecards
WASHINGTON, Aug. 30 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Christian Coalition of America announces the release of its 2010 Congressional Scorecards, rating members of Congress on their votes over the past year.
In announcing the scorecards, Coalition President Roberta Combs stated that, "When it comes to how members of Congress actually vote on critical issues, too many Americans are not aware of how their elected officials vote on bills that affect their everyday lives."
"Our scorecards rate members of Congress on some of the most important issues that we face today. These issues are important to our families and to the conservative movement," Combs said.
The scorecards cover a range of congressional votes, including: the debate over health care reform, taxpayer funding of abortion, spending bills, traditional marriage, free speech and the illegal immigration issue.
Members of Congress are then rated on a scale of 0 to 100, based on their votes.
Christian Coalition of America is a non-partisan political organization that works to identify, educate and mobilize Christians for effective political action.
