2020 MC-Index

I have, in time for the election, released the 2020 MC-Index. This is a guide for conservatives as to who is conservative and who is not in Congress. This year, there were 20 roll calls in each chamber I selected from. In the Senate, there are some nominations that may not make it in other years, but the range of issues was rather narrow thanks in part to COVID-19. Perhaps most notably, though, for the first time in American history, a senator from the president’s party voted to convict him on an impeachment charge. Easily the most significant achievement for conservatism of the Republican Senate this year was the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett.

The House was a bit more revelatory as you can see at least a rough picture of what Democrats seek to do should they achieve unified government from this election. Among the things they wish to do include admitting Washington D.C. as a state, ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment, allow unions to be certified without a secret ballot vote among its members, expand Obamacare, and crack down on state right to work laws. This year forty members of the House, all Republicans, scored a 100%:
