"We thank these Members of Congress for consistently voting to defend and advance faith, family and freedom. These 'True Blue Members' have voted to repeal Obamacare, protect unborn children and their mothers, stand for religious liberty, end the forced partnership between taxpayers and Planned Parenthood, allow students to attend the school of their choice, and protect pro-life organizations and employers from being forced to hire individuals who disagree with pro-life principles.
"In the last election, we witnessed the collapse of the Obama legacy. After the spectacular failures of Obamacare, the demoralization of our military, the explosion of lawlessness, and an obsession with social engineering, Americans finally have the opportunity to rebuild the country they once knew. These Members of Congress have undertaken the vital task of rebuilding our nation.
"FRC and the hundreds of thousands of families and churches that we represent applaud these Members for their unwavering commitment to faith, family and freedom," concluded Perkins.
