Congresswoman Ashley Hinson registered a score of 65 percent from the House Liberty Caucus for her voting record in 2022. Hinson’s score of 65 percent is nine points lower than the average Republican score in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Hinson was docked for her votes on:

HR 3076: The Postal Service Reform Act, which appropriated an additional $58 billion to the United States Postal Service. (Hinson supported)

HR 2471: The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2022, a $1.5 trillion omnibus spending bill that was 2,741 pages long. (Hinson supported)

HR 7108: The Suspending Normal Trade Relations with Russia and Belarus Act, which gives the President unbridled authority to sanction virtually anyone, anywhere in the world. It would also impose tariff increases on goods from Russia/Belarus. (Hinson voted in support)

HR 7691: The Additional Ukraine Supplemental Appropriations Act, which appropriated over $40 billion in foreign aid to Ukraine. (Hinson voted in support)

HR 5585: The ARPA–H Act, which would have created a new agency within the Department of Health and Human Services, called the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Health. This wasteful new bureaucracy would cost taxpayers $500 million every year. (Hinson voted in support)

HR 7900: The first version of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2023, which would have appropriated $839 billion for the 2023 military budget, without auditing the Pentagon and without repealing the COVID-19 vaccine mandate on military servicemembers. (Hinson voted in support)

HR 7776: The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023, which approves an $858 billion military budget without an audit. This wasteful Pentagon budget enacts an 8% spending increase, appropriating $45 billion more than what President Biden requested. (Hinson voted in support)

Members of the U.S. House who scored 100 percent include:

Rep. Andy Biggs
Rep. Dan Bishop
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene
Rep. Thomas Massie
