Report: SC's Four Frosh Congressmen Fulfill Tea Party Promise

The Club for Growth released its scorecard Tuesday of the "Tea Party" freshmen, which included four from South Carolina.

South Carolina's four freshmen congressmen scored well among their peers swept into office in 2010's Tea Party election, according to a report Tuesday from the Club for Growth.

The organization said promises of fiscal responsibility from most of the 87 freshmen across the country "have proven to be empty." The freshmen received an average score of 71 percent, compared to a 69 percent rating among veterans.

But South Carolina's Mick Mulvavey, Jeff Duncan, Trey Gowdy and Tim Scott bucked the trend, scoring very well in the survey.

Scott, the only Republican freshman in a leadership position, scored a 92.

And the other three S.C. freshmen congressmen were among the top 10 in the country, according to the Club for Growth: Mulvaney (99), Duncan (97) and Gowdy (97).

Poor Joe. You can console yourself thinking that you're physically stronger than reg even though there is no proof of that either. I hope you are strong, based on your ability to reason and argue you'll need strength for your career options.

@Joe: "please grow up!" repeating: correct me [seigler] if i'm wrong...but seems when joe-etal asked question there is an answer (fr reg or whoever)...OTOH when a question is asked of joe-etal [or facts presented] there is no answer [or counter facts]...just more adhom attacks. recent exchange seems to confirms my opine...ad hominem attacks are NOT facts and add NOTHING to understanding the issues... joe-etal's time better spent googling for facts...or opines that strengthen their positions...vice spouting too cute by 1/2 adhoms...weel really not that cute. sorry joe but you need a new line...or you will become less and less relevant to yo causes.

@Chris Winston: "...reduced to name calling and veiled (or not so veiled) innuendo...Have Mulvaney, Duncan, Gowdy and Scott remained truer to their word than others?" didn't take long to get off topic again...but difficult to expand on a bacically "yes/no" question...any thoughts...

@Joe: "u people must have no life" mo confirmation of my opine: "repeating: correct me [seigler] if i'm wrong...but seems when joe-etal asked question there is an answer (fr reg or whoever)...OTOH when a question is asked of joe-etal [or facts presented] there is no answer [or counter facts]...just more adhom attacks. but have to admit i do need to get a life vice responding to joe's adhoms...but in some perverse way it's fun...and perhaps it may change some T-GOP opines which would be plus for our country.
