The Faith and Freedom Coalition led by Ralph Reed is dedicated to upholding the values of faith, family, and personal responsibility, and enacting policies focused on limited government and fiscal responsibility. Hatch was one of only 13 Senators who received a perfect 100 percent score from the Coalition’s ranking on key issues.
“As someone who has always fought for limited government and conservative values, I’m honored to receive this award from this committed organization,” Hatch said. “We’ve seen an unprecedented growth of government over the last three and a half years. Congress needs to do everything we can to rein in government and stop the largest tax hike in our country’s history scheduled to hit nearly every American at the end of this year. I appreciate everything the Faith and Freedom coalition and other similar organizations are doing to join that fight.”
The Coalition’s rankings are based on 11 key votes on legislation focused on preserving religious freedom, cutting spending and strengthening the economy.
