Representative Steven Palazzo (R-Biloxi) has been rated as one of the most conservative Members of Congress, earning a score of 84.
This week, the American Conservative Union (ACU) released their ratings of Members of Congress on key conservative issues. The ACU has been rating Members since 1971 and have been considered the most important measuring stick in American Politics.
"I am pleased to make the list of the most conservative Members of Congress. Since being elected in 2010, I have tirelessly fought against the liberal Obama agenda by leading the charge to institute a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution in effort to get Washington spending under control and cancel the President's blank check policy," said Palazzo.
Representative Palazzo has a strong voting record of protecting South Mississippi values and standing up to protect our brave men and women serving in the Armed Forces. "As the only Congressman serving as a Sergeant in the Army National Guard, I understand how important a strong military is to the security of our nation. I also have voted to repeal and defund Obamacare." He continued to say, "My number one focus has been getting South Mississippi's economy working again by allowing families to keep more of the money they earn in their pockets and stop burdensome regulations and taxes that stifle innovation and job growth."
Rep. Palazzo is a former small business owner and CPA from Biloxi serving his first term in Congress as Assistant Majority Whip. He is running for re-election in the March 13th Republican Primary. He has voted to cut over $10 trillion from the federal budget and has supported the 28 House Republican jobs bills waiting for action in the Senate.
The ACU is America's largest grassroots organization that determines which representatives stand strongest in the beliefs on constitutionally limited government, individual liberty, free markets, a strong national defense and traditional values.
