Recently, American Conservative Union (A.C.U.) Chairman Al Cardenas and A.C.U. Foundation Chairman Carly Fiorina honored Representative Steven Palazzo as an “A.C.U. Conservative” for his achievements in the 2013 A.C.U. Ratings of Congress, the 43rd edition of the conservative ratings guide. Since 1971, the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization has annually graded Members of Congress based on their votes on key conservative issues.

The 2013 A.C.U. Ratings of Congress includes scores for each individual member in both the Senate and the House of Representatives. “A.C.U. Conservatives,” are members recognized for scoring 80% or higher.

“Conservatives have a responsibility to fight the out-of-control growth of government in Congress. We are proud to honor the fine work of Rep. Palazzo in that battle,” said A.C.U. Chairman Al Cardenas.

A.C.U. has become the go-to source for determining whether an elected official’s philosophical rhetoric matches his or her record. The guides provide a comprehensive analysis of the legislative landscape over the preceding year. A.C.U.’s scored votes are not announced in advance, ensuring that its scores provide a more accurate reflection of an elected official’s philosophy of government.

“The 2013 Ratings show a continued commitment by Rep. Palazzo to the conservative principles that will contribute to the revitalization of America,” said A.C.U. Foundation Chairman Carly Fiorina.

The A.C.U. tracks a wide range of issues before Congress to determine which bills serve as the best barometer for separating those representatives who defend liberty from liberal members who have turned their backs on our founding principles – constitutionally limited government, individual liberty, free markets, a strong national defense, and traditional American values.
