2010 Vote Scorecard: 111th Congress
FRCAction’s scorecard for the 111th Congress includes votes from January, 2009 through August, 2010. The issues included reflect the increasingly bold liberal agenda of this Congress. Votes covered issues from international abortion funding, hate crimes, health care and abortion funding, free speech restrictions, choice in education, funding needle exchange programs and multiple nominations in the Senate, such as votes to confirm Justices Judge Sotomayor and Elana Kagan to the Supreme Court.
As other issues were being voted on, the health care reform legislation and the inevitable abortion funding, increased cost, and rationing took prominence reflected by inclusion of 10 health care-related votes in this scorecard. While many Democrats and Republicans stayed true to their principles in opposing the move to use government funds to pay for abortions, the pro-abortion legislation passed after a number of legislators betrayed their pro-life roots. Overall the document looks at 16 votes in the House and 24 votes in the Senate.
