FreedomWorks proudly awarded Congressman James Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin (WI-5) with the organization’s second annual “FreedomFighter Award,” a token of appreciation given to members of the House and Senate who consistently vote in defense of economic freedom. 

Each “FreedomFighter” recipient earned a minimum score of 90 percent on the FreedomWorks Congressional Scorecard during the 2012 legislative session, which often required legislators to cast politically unpopular votes inside the Beltway in order to defend liberty and strengthen the economy across the country.

FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe commented, “Congressman James Sensenbrenner took a stand against the Washington special interest machine and proved himself a true defender of economic freedom with a 90 out of 100 percent on the FreedomWorks Congressional Scorecard. FreedomWorks encourages Congressman Sensenbrenner to keep fighting the good fight to protect Wisconsin taxpayers, and bring back fiscal sanity and accountability to the federal government.” 

The FreedomWorks Congressional Scorecard (at http://congress.freedomworks.org) is a ground-breaking piece of technology that has drawn an abundance of national media attention.  The user-friendly technology allows activists the ability to track the votes of Members of Congress in ‘real time’ on key issues of economic freedom. Users have the option to search for their lawmakers’ scores by zip code, or to browse each year’s scores by name, state, political party, or score rankings.
   
FreedomWorks is a grassroots service center to a community of over 4 million grassroots activists nationwide who believe in individual liberty and constitutionally-limited government. For more information about the FreedomWorks Congressional Scorecard, please visit http://congress.freedomworks.org/ or contact FreedomWorks press assistant Trey Grover at Tgrover@FreedomWorks.org.
