For almost 30 years, the New American Magazine has been publishing the Freedom Index, a Congressional scorecard based on the U.S. Constitution. The index rates congressmen based on their adherence to constitutional principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, national sovereignty, and a traditional foreign policy of avoiding foreign entanglements.
Listed below are the US Senators and Representatives from the Four States area, their rating for the current session of Congress, and their cumulative score since 1999 in parentheses. You can click on each Congressman’s name for a detailed record of their votes. For a printable PDF version of the current Freedom Index, with a full explanation of each vote, click here.
I want to foster a sense of community across the Four States Region, where we can get to know each other even though we might live 50 miles apart. I want to make sure the stories in each town are told, by the people that live there. That's Community Journalism, and you can be part of it.
