Club for Growth: Brownback Scores 98/100

Filed under: Election 2008,John McCain,Sam Brownback — Psycheout @ 2:21 pm

The Club for Growth released its annual scorecard for 2006 and, not surprisingly, our man Sam was right up at the top of the heap. As a result, Sam Brownback was awarded a Defender of Economic Freedom award. Congratulations, Sam!

Club for Growth Releases 2006 Scorecard and Awards 22 Congressmen Defender of Economic Freedom Award

Washington – Today, the Club for Growth released its 2006 annual scorecard and the Club’s President, Pat Toomey, awarded the annual Defender of Economic Freedom award to the 22 congressional members who scored a 90 or above on the Club’s scorecard.

And how did superstar John McCain do (who snubbed the Club for Growth recently and skipped out on CPAC)? He got a 76%. Same grade as last year. Observation: no improvement.

OK, that’s not exactly fair. Let’s see how Sam did last year…. 88%. So he’s improved his score by 10 points in just one year! Sam Brownback is on the rise. Nothing can stop him now!

Note that endorsements like these will keep coming as the campaign goes on, but you’re unlikely to hear about it in the MSM. Keep tuned to B4B for the latest Brownback buzz. You can’t blame us if you can’t keep up!

Update: More on McCain, in case you had any doubt, The Club for Growth has released a white paper on him:

While Senator McCain’s economic record contains a number of pro-growth positions, such as his support for school choice and free trade, and his steadfast opposition to wasteful government spending, his overall record is tainted by a marked antipathy towards the free market and individual freedom.

The Club is much more enthusiastic about Sam Brownback, naturally.

Senator Brownback’s record on pro-growth, free-market policies is generally quite good with a few minor exceptions. His record on taxes, tort reform, and school choice has been outstanding in its support of prosperity and opportunity. On trade, government regulation of business, and political speech, his record has been very positive.

    McCain –, —

    McStain just gets McLamer and McLamer.

    The Club for Growth should just go ahead and endorse Sam Brownback for president. He’s the best they are going to get this campaign season.

  2. The Club knows a good thing when it sees it. What’s good for business is good for America. Sam Brownback is good for business. Ergo, Brownback is good for America.

    He’s got my vote.
