Rep. Jeff Flake first member of Congress to score 100% on the RLC's Liberty Index

Congratulations to U.S. Rep. Jeff Flake of Arizona.

Jeff is the first Member of Congress to score 100% on the RLC's Liberty Index, which has ranked members of Congress on social and economic issue votes since 1992.

In 2009, Flake scored perfectly. We are behind on tabulations for the Liberty Index, which is why the 2009 scores were just recently released.

Ron Paul was dinged on an earmark vote.

In the Senate, there was a two-way tie for highest: Senators John Ensign of Nevada and Jim DeMint of South Carolina, with 93. Both scored 100 in economic liberty and 86 in personal liberty. Judging by the Senators who were one vote short of a perfect 100 or a perfect zero, the toughest economic vote was the vote to cut $1.8 billion from the acquisition of F-22 Raptors
