Have Your Say When Congress Votes

Have they earned your vote?


View the current scorecard, which will be finalized at the end of the 115th Congress (scroll down to see the finalized 114th Congress scorecard).

In keeping with our promise to help our members make informed decisions at the polls, NFIB presents this special pre-election voting guide of How Congress Voted. This election-year report cuts through the rhetoric of campaigns and looks at the hard facts: how your U.S. Senators and Representatives voted on small business issues during the 114th Congress. (Note: This report represents NFIB Key Votes taken prior to July 15, 2016. NFIB will issue a final report at the end of the 114th Congress.)

Lawmakers who vote with small business on key issues 70 percent or more of the time during the 114th Congress earn NFIB’s Guardian of Small Business Award. Just as important, this report also highlights lawmakers who not only didn’t earn a Guardian Award but who actually voted against small business issues a majority of the time.

This special NFIB member report should come as no surprise to lawmakers. NFIB asks lawmakers to support the consensus views of our members. We also remind them that their votes are being monitored and will be reported back to NFIB members.
