Conservative Review Grades Members of Congress

One of my favorite sites is Conservative Review.  On this site they rate Senators and Representatives based on their Liberty Score.  I sincerely thank them for the work they put in and value their scoring when I do my pre-election research.

The CR Liberty Score® Grades Members of Congress

“Conservative Review’s Liberty Score® grades members of Congress on the top 50 votes over a rolling six-year term. A letter grade is assigned to each member to help you quickly determine whether a lawmaker is supporting conservative principles. The Liberty Score® helps evaluate your representatives and senators, providing the tools necessary to separate rhetoric from reality. We don’t expect any elected officials to be perfect, but we do expect them to keep promises.”

This is where I found the information below which I filtered down to Illinois and got about what I expected:  Even the Republicans rate no higher than a D.

IL Senate:

Member Party State Liberty Score Years in DC Next Election
Richard Durbin D IL F 6% 21 2020
Tammy Duckworth D IL F 0% 5 2022

House:

Member Party State Liberty Score Years in DC Next Election
Randy Hultgren R IL D 66% 7 2018
Darin LaHood R IL D 63% 1 2018
Peter Roskam R IL F 54% 11 2018
Rodney Davis R IL F 37% 5 2018
John Shimkus R IL F 37% 21 2018
Mike Bost R IL F 33% 3 2018
Adam Kinzinger R IL F 32% 7 2018
Luis Gutierrez D IL F 27% 25 2018
Bobby Rush D IL F 26% 25 2018
Raja Krishnamoorthi D IL F 22% 1 2018
Jan Schakowsky D IL F 20% 19 2018
Daniel Lipinski D IL F 20% 13 2018
Danny Davis D IL F 20% 21 2018
Robin Kelly D IL F 17% 5 2018
Bill Foster D IL F 14% 5 2018
Mike Quigley D IL F 12% 9 2018
Cheri Bustos D IL F 11% 5 2018
Brad Schneider D IL F 10% 5 2014

What are the takeaways from this?  In my opinion, the majority of people in Illinois either do not care about conservative values, or they do not do their research and just vote for more of the same.  I sincerely hope it is the latter and getting more information out will help our State elect better candidates.  For this reason I implore you to share this information with everyone you know and direct them to Conservative Review to see what their Senators and Representatives are doing in Washington.
