KEY VOTE ALERT s nothing more than a redistribution scheme allowing politicians and bureaucrats to fund their pet projects. The EDA is corporate welfare. The free market, not the government, should be in charge of picking winners and losers in the private sector. A better alternative to the EDA is to cut tax rates on individuals and businesses while at the same time eliminating special interest carve outs and regulations, thereby promoting economic growth without growing the government. Our Congressional Scorecard for the 112th Congress provides a comprehensive rating of how well or how poorly each member of Congress supports pro-growth, free-market policies and will be distributed to our members and to the public.
