Are You Satisfied With Your US House Rep?

9 150

Washington, DC – May 7, 2013
Today, the Madison Project PAC released its updated Madison Performance Index (MPI) for the full 112th Congress.

The Madison Performance Index factors the average of the 2011 and 2012 legislative scores from Heritage Action for America and the Club for Growth, the two most respected conservative scorecards. Each Member’s average score is pegged against the ideological orientation of his district, as defined by the Cook Partisan Voter Index.

It’s a simple way for us to create clarity for the American taxpayers. Either their Members are performing to the make-up of their districts or they are not, said Drew Ryun of the Madison Project. We believe the MPI provides a measuring stick for voters to look at when it comes time to retain or remove Members.

  • We expect an A (90+) from members in our most conservative districts, rated R+13 and above.
  • Members from our lean-Republican districts, rated R+7-R+12, are expected to score, at a minimum, a B grade – with a sliding scale from 89 down to 80 based on the regression in PVI.
  • Members from R+6 districts (some of which swung to Obama) on down to R+0 (pure swing districts), are expected, at a minimum, to score a C grade, with a sliding scale from 79 down to 70 based on the regression in PVI.
  • Finally, those Republicans in Democrat-leaning districts are expected to score, at a minimum, a D grade, ranging from 69 down to 60 based on the regression in PVI. Our minimum score for the lowest rated district that is represented by a Republican is 60.
  • Due to inherent margins of errors, members scoring only a few points below their target score are not necessarily underperforming. Any score that meets or exceeds the target score is a very positive reflection on that member.

Conservatives should bookmark Madison Project. It is an excellent research tool to find out whether or not your Republican Representative in the US House is undermining conservatives or not. Personally I found myself in a better place just by moving from an Indianapolis district that has just about forever been sending a Democrat to the US House to a Texas congressional district rated above R+13 that has been represented by a D- Republican.

The Democrats are delusional and drowning in wishful thinking about #turntexasblue. It’s not gonna happen. Currently Texas sends more Republicans to the US House than any other state. 24 of the 36 congressional districts in Texas are represented by a Republican. 18 of these 24 congressional districts has a PVI that is R+13 and above. If you are a conservative and you have the opportunity to move yourself to a better place, then Texas should be where you look first. A distant second choice is Florida that sends 17 Republicans to the US House out of 27 congressional districts. Both Texas and Florida do not have a state income tax.

Below are tables for Texas and Florida based on the updated Madison Performance Index results.

    Although born a Yankee, after decades of Conservative activism and my professional life kept me traveling all over, I have settled in NC….trouble is that for years I have been ill represented by a crypto Marxist PhD Prof. turned Dem. US House Rep., David Price who lives when home…in Uber Liberal Chapel Hill…but recently do to reapportionment my new Rep. is Howard Coble…Republican, but he seems to be a squishy middle of the road RINO in many ways….much to my suprise! He represents the 6th Congrsl. Distr…. I certainly wish my Republican Rep. in the US Congress was Walter Jones! Above all Conservative Republicans in NC, he is the greatest! I am horrified at how Conservatism has changed here in NC…but I know why for the most part! The overwhelming subversive influence of the Globlalist Multi-national Corporations and Universities here in the RTP, and Charlotte and areas that have hired highly miseducated engineers and scientists and technicians and physicians and nurses and all kinds of those who have either believed or accepted the ideological principles of Gramci Cultural Marxism and International Socialism: Internationalism, Multi-culturalism, Socialism, Moral Relativism, etc.. I settled here largely because of the apparent super strong Conservatism of the People, symbolized by the late and largely great Statesman, Sen. Jesse Helms. Little did I know how deep the cancer of Gramci Marxism had penetrated the Culture and institutions of the Old North State as well as most of the USA! How has America elected and re-elected a Marxist Islamic Moslem Brotherhood extremist as POTUS…after all of the seeming impact of the Modern Conservative Movement from Sen. Joe McCarthy, J,. Edgar Hoover, William F. Buckley, Jr. and his NR, Goldlwater for Pres., Nixon, YAF, JBS, the “Reagan Revolution”, etc…? Tragically, these political movements were for the most part just scratching the surface of the evil Globalist Marxist Socialist Totolitarian Orwellian Luciferian Conspiracy to end all Human Freedom that humanity has fought and died for for thousands of years! In the USA, this Luciferian Hydra has two main “heads”, Demoncrat and Republicrat made up of for the most part by opportunistic or committed operatives to this Hellish Fraternity…and then there are the few exceptions….like the Hon. Walter Jones…American Truth Seeking and Truth Speaking Patriot!

    My representatives vote 100% Obama. They are for every tax hike, personal infringement, Agenda 21, global warming, anti- 2nd, 4h, 10th, 1st and 5th amendments and never support he others, unless of course it can be manipulated to bring them more money and control. I unequivocally despise my Federal representatives. My local people are ok.

    Now WHO in the world would be unhappy with Boner as Speaker??? He cries like a little girl… He plays golf with oBoobo… He throws other Republicans under the bus so NOT to hurt demofiuk’s feelings. But we here are stuck with Murphy and he’s only a conservative at election time. Otherwise he’s pushing Carbon Taxes & Global crap and Card Check. I’m sure he’ll be the first in the House to support gun control too.

    I am well satisfied with my North Carolina Representative Walter Jones . He is a real conservative , proven by Boehners removing him from all committees after he submitted a bill to impeach Obamass . But 90% of them are Obamass a– kissers and d suckers .

    My “Representative”, Bill Posey, has been busy sucking “Weepy” dick ever since he got to DC. Just like Sandy Adams before him. My “Senators” are Rubio and Nelson, because the GOP decided to run Rove Republican Connie Mack against Billy Boy. I do not have “representation” in DC. The GOP and the Democrat party have become nothing more than opposite ends of the same steaming turd. The only difference between the two is whose cronies get to slop at the government trough when they are in charge.

    1. Guest says

      effective mental image.. could not be any more true.. “slop at the gov trough” lol..

      I’ve never lived in your district, but I understand what you’re saying about Posey. There was a vote 3/20/13 on the RSC budget amendment. It only got 104 Yes votes to 132 No votes. 171 of of the Dems voted present. Posey and most of the Florida Rs voted No. In Texas 22 of the 24 Rs voted yes for this bill. The way things are going there won’t be a party for us who are conservatives.
