20 Republicans Vote for Liar Jack Lew

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

If you want to know why conservatives are losing the battle for this country, look no further than the imbalance in presidential nominees.  When Republicans are president and they nominate strong conservatives to the cabinet, Democrats move heaven and earth to oppose them.  Republicans just genuflect before Democrats now that Obama is president.  Aside for the fact that Read More →

23 GOP Senators Vote for Violence Against the Constitution Act

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

The Senate voted today to reauthorize and expand the unconstitutional Violence Against Women Act (S.47).  You can read our full analysis on the bill here.  This bill vitiates due process, interjects the federal government into local law enforcement issues, violates the rights of citizens charged for domestic violence crimes on Indian reservations, promotes the homosexual agenda, and expands Read More →

Senate Defeats Effort to Block Transfer of Fighter Jets to Egypt

Friday, February 1st, 2013

Not only did the Obama administration help instal the Muslim Brotherhood as the governing body in Egypt, they are now planning to send them F-16 fighter jets and Abrams tanks.  Their leader, Mohammad Morsi, recently said ‘Jews were bloodsuckers and descendants of apes and pigs.’ Outside of Washington, we would call Rand Paul’s effort to block the transfer Read More →

Updates for 2012 and 2013 Coming Soon!

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

We are proud that the Madison Performance Index was able to spark a national discussion among conservatives about the need to elect more principled conservatives from red districts and states.  Our index ranks the members by juxtaposing their scores from conservative organizations to the Cook Partisan Voting Index or the member’s respective district.  These scores only reflect 2011 Read More →

Good Job by Freshmen on Flood Insurance Bill

Friday, January 4th, 2013

In one of the last votes of 2012, the Senate passed Obama’s bloated Sandy “relief” bill (H.R. 1) 62-32.  The $60.4 billion price tag makes this the most expensive disaster aid bill on record.  It’s full of special interest projects that have nothing to do with the emergency, as witnessed by the fact that 64% of the funds Read More →

Is There Really a Difference Anymore?

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike.  No questions, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.  [Animal Farm, last paragraph] Republicans were Read More →

Mediocre House Committee Chairmen Selected

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Republicans in Washington are looking for ways to change the face of the party following their defeat in the presidential election.  However, one thing that will not change is the face of GOP leaders in the House. Last week, John Boehner stacked the Steering Committee, which is responsible for selecting committee assignments, with like-minded stooges.  He also gave Read More →

New Cook PVIs Show Big Opportunities for Conservatives in the House

Thursday, October 11th, 2012

For all you political junkies, this is the type of news that will brighten up your day.  Charlie Cook has finally revised his partisan rating index for House districts to reflect the new congressional districts post-redistricting.  The index factors in the average vote totals for the Republican and Democrat presidential nominees during the past two election cycles in Read More →

Only 70 Republicans Vote Against Disastrous CR

Friday, September 14th, 2012

As we noted earlier this week, the Continuing Resolution voted on in the House will increase spending, fund Obamacare, and extend the main welfare program without forcing Obama to reinstate work requirements.  This bill is really an embarrassment to everything House Republicans professed to stand for.  It will delay the major battles until March 27, 2013.  And let Read More →

A Republican House Votes for a New Federal Program

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

We get the message.  Despite all the tough talk during the 2010 elections, House Republicans have no plans to actually eliminate government programs, agencies, and God forbid – departments.  But is it too much to ask that we not create new ones?  It is incredible that at a time when Republicans can use their control over the House Read More →
