The organization Club for Growth, which supports free markets and has never been shy in criticizing Republicans who slip too far from its core conservative agenda, released its scorecard for how politicians voted on market issues in 2010.

Just two politicians on the list voted pro-free market every single time, according to the list. They were Sen. Jim Demint, R-S.C., and Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla. Two dozen Democrats, mostly from Northeast and West Coast states, had a 0 percent rating on economic-growth issues.

What is most telling about the scorecard, though, are the stats on those lawmakers who fall more toward the middle.

“The report could sting for some moderate Republicans in solid red districts or conservative Democrats trying to show their independence from President Obama and their party,” writes Jonathan Strong at DailyCaller.com.

The group publishes the annual report “so our members and the public can monitor the actions and the voting behavior of members of Congress on economic growth issues,” according to its website.
