Diane Black was one of those members who ran as a Tea Partier in a conservative district, but turned out to be a big disappointment. In 2011, she voted against the RSC budget, the effort to reinstate pre-Pelosi spending levels, the elimination of the Solyndra-loan program, and a number of spending cut amendments. She voted for the debt ceiling deal, the minibus, and omnibus bills that violated every tenet of the Tea Party. Those votes earned her a dismal 70 average score in 2011, and when compared to her conservative district, she qualifies for the Hall of Shame for 2011.
In 2013, she has further disappointed and dipped to an all-time low score of -72.5.
