Rep. Rick Allen Wins FRC Action's 'True Blue' Award for Unwavering Support of the Family
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yesterday, FRC Action hosted its annual True Blue Award ceremony honoring members of Congress who received 100 percent scores on FRC Action's Vote Scorecard for demonstrating an unwavering commitment and consistent support of faith, family, and freedom during the first session of the 114th Congress. Scores of House members -- including U.S. Rep. Rick Allen (R-Ga.-12) -- and Senators were in attendance to receive their True Blue award.
Votes in the U.S. House included:
• Eliminating Taxpayer funding for Abortion
• Repealing Obamacare
• Repealing the Death Tax
• Banning abortion on five month-old pain-capable unborn children
• Short Term Government Funding without Defunding Planned Parenthood
• Defunding Planned Parenthood and Repealing Key Elements of Obamacare
Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins made the following comments:
“We thank Representative Allen for consistently voting to uphold the fundamentals of faith, family and freedom. Rep. Allen voted to repeal key parts of Obamacare, protect the unborn, end the forced partnership between taxpayers and Planned Parenthood, and protect state marriage laws before the Supreme Court changed the historic definition of marriage.
“We can be encouraged by elected officials who are willing to be criticized by some in the media and the intolerant voices of secularism as they stand for family values. Congress as a whole is often criticized, and rightfully so, but there are individual Members, like Rep. Allen, who deserve praise for their unwavering commitment to stand for life, family, marriage, and religious liberty.
“Family Research Council Action and the hundreds of thousands of families we represent are proud to recognize these men and women for their faithful work. Our hope is that in the next Congress, he will be joined by many more like him,” Perkins concluded.
