To the editor:
The New American magazine compiles a record of congressional votes twice annually. The record evaluates the overall voting record of Congress and is called The Freedom Index.
This scorecard 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. Overall the 113th Congress scored an average of 39 percent. Pathetic.
Looking at individual congressman scores, I am alarmed to find my congressman, Todd Young, to have scored 47 percent. I worked with a man years ago who taught me never to expect what I did not inspect, still true today. America is being run into the ground by these congressmen.
