How Politics Works: Marco Rubio & AFP

Last week I was on a con­fer­ence call with Amer­i­cans for Pros­per­ity. they put out their score­card rat­ing each mem­ber of con­gress. It’s an ele­gant card of excel­lent use if you want to see exactly how your con­gress­man or Sen­a­tor did last ses­sion.
You can pull your infor­ma­tion based on the cat­e­gories that mean the most to you:

search issue

You can also search by state, name or even by your indi­vid­ual zip code to see how your mem­bers of con­gress have done.

As nice as the page looks, what mat­ters is the score. As you might guess AFP being a fis­cally con­ser­v­a­tive group a per­son like Rand Paul does pretty well in their rankings:

Rand Paul

91% Pretty good num­bers. It will come in handy when Rand Paul runs in 2016 but what about his most vis­i­ble poten­tial rival in the Sen­ate Marco Rubio?

100%. A per­fect score. That’s pretty impres­sive but scor­ing 10% higher than Rand Paul on Eco­nomic Free­dom?. One would not think that’s possible.

If you are going to run for pres­i­dent as a fis­cal con­ser­v­a­tive and you are scor­ing nearly 10 points higher than Rand Paul on the AFP score­card that’s a walk­ing talk­ing Bill­board for cam­paign contributions.

It will be inter­est­ing to see if Rubio can keep that score above the Sen­a­tor from Ken­tucky. It’s the type of talk­ing point that will play very well in Iowa and New Hampshire.

and That’s how Pol­i­tics works.

As nice as the page looks, what matters is the score. As you might guess AFP being a fiscally conservative group a person like Rand Paul does pretty well in their rankings:

100%. A perfect score. That’s pretty impressive but scoring 10% higher than Rand Paul on Economic Freedom?. One would not think that’s possible.

If you are going to run for president as a fiscal conservative and you are scoring nearly 10 points higher than Rand Paul on the AFP scorecard that’s a walking talking Billboard for campaign contributions.

It will be interesting to see if Rubio can keep that score above the Senator from Kentucky. It’s the type of talking point that will play very well in Iowa and New Hampshire.

and That’s how Politics works.
