The American Conservative Union (ACU) today presented U.S. Congressman Paul Broun, M.D. (GA-10) with a perfect score of 100% on their 2012 annual Congressional ratings, as well as the Defender of Liberty Award. This award is only given to those members of the House and Senate who earn a perfect score on a wide range of issues of concern to grassroots conservatives. The complete list of ratings can be viewed at http://conservative.org/legislative-ratings.
"I am honored to receive this award from my friends at ACU and I look forward to working with them throughout this Congress on the issues that matter most to Georgians and grassroots activists all across this nation," said Congressman Broun. "Liberty is too precious not to be ever vigilant in protecting it. I thank Chairman Cardenas and his team at ACU for all of the good work they do in protecting not only our liberty, but also the constitutional principles that this country was built upon. I will continue to do everything I can to help the ACU promote personal responsibility, accountability in government, unwavering freedom, and a strong national defense."
