Announced Thursday, Republican Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) was ranked number one out of 435 other members of Congress by Heritage Action for his record on foundational principles.
Heritage Action, a political branch of the Heritage Foundation, evaluates Congressional records on issues of “free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.”
“Heritage Action is on the front lines of the battle to protect America’s foundational principles from Congressional mischief,” Brooks said in a statement. “I thank them for helping to inform the voting public about which members of Congress keep their campaign promises (and which don’t) concerning Free-Enterprise vs. Socialism, liberty and freedom vs. tyranny, traditional American values vs. anti-American values, border security vs. open-borders, a strong national defense vs. weakening America’s defenses, and a host of other issues.”
“Socialists, open-borders advocates, debt junkies, and those who hate America work overtime in Congress and across America to undermine America’s foundational principles and bring America down. They must not win,” Brooks continued. “I have in the past, and will in the future, fight for the foundational principles that have made America the greatest nation in world history. American prosperity and American lives are at stake.”
He added, “America’s future depends on beating back the anti-American tsunami that threatens to swamp and drown the very principles that have made us who we are: the greatest nation in world history.”
Earlier in the week, Brooks was ranked number one for his record on border security by NumbersUSA.
