Rep. Justin Amash

Amash Responds to Secret Scorecard Letter

by  |  published on December 13, 2012

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) called on Speaker John Boehner today to release the secret scorecard used by the Republican Steering Committee to boot four Republicans from key House committees.

Amash and two other Representatives sent Boehner a letter on Friday that requests that the Speaker provide a full justification for their removal and a copy of the scorecard. Boehner’s letter references the scorecard but fails to disclose its contents.

Amash’s statement is below:

“I have received a response from Speaker Boehner concerning the secret scorecard used to target certain fiscally responsible members of the Budget and Financial Services committees.

“The Speaker did not dispute the existence of a scorecard and he did not deny that it was used to justify the Representatives’ removals.

“I recently was told that I received a ‘0’ on the Republican leadership’s scorecard. Given my work with Democrats and Republicans on serious proposals to balance the budget, it is certain that the scorecard awarded points for supporting bigger deficits and more debt.
