Congressman Kevin Brady (R-TX) has been honored with the “Award for Conservative Achievement” from the American Conservative Union (ACU), the nation’s original grassroots conservative organization. The award salutes conservative leadership and reflects Congressman Brady’s work in Congress to uphold conservative principles.
“Chairman Brady deserves great credit leading the effort to pass tax reform through Congress. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is the most far-reaching corporate tax reform in a generation and Chairman Brady can take pride in the fact that his leadership will make America more competitive globally, which means better jobs and more economic opportunities for Texans. The ACU is proud of the Chairman’s record and Chairman Brady should be proud of his 2017 Congressional voting record.” – Matt Schlapp, ACU Chairman
“The awards and scorecards in Washington are many, but this honor from the American Conservative Union is significant to me because it confirms that actions speak louder than words,” said Kevin Brady, Chairman of the U.S. House Committee on Ways and Means.”And with conservative pro-growth policies coming out of Congress and The White House, and an economy that’s humming because of the President’s tax cuts, Texans and American families and workers are seeing results. I am proud to accept this award and grateful to be recognized by such a respected organization as the ACU.”

Since 1971, ACU’s Congressional Ratings have become the gold standard in holding every member of Congress accountable for their voting record by scoring some of the most important issues facing our nation. This year, ratings were based off how members voted on major conservative legislative priorities such as; passing historic tax reform legislation, repealing Obamacare, and defunding Planned Parenthood.
The American Conservative Union is best known for founding and hosting the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) outside of Washington D.C.
The American Conservative Union (ACU) is the nation’s original conservative organization. For more than fifty years, ACU has served as an umbrella organization harnessing the collective strength of conservative organizations fighting for Americans who are concerned with liberty, personal responsibility, traditional values, and strong national defense.
