He was recently presented with FRC Action's "True Blue" award for displaying unwavering commitment and consistent support of faith, family, and freedom.

Votes in the U.S. House and Senate included:
• No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion
• Disapproval of Obama's HHS Title X Rule
• Obamacare Repeal and Replace
• Confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court
• DOD Transgender Funding (Blocking Funding for Sex-Reassignment Surgeries)

• Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act
• Independent Payment Advisory Board Repeal
• Confirmation of Amy Barrett to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals
• Tax Cuts & Jobs Act

Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins made the following comment:

"We thank Rep. Johnson for consistently voting to defend and advance faith, family and freedom. As a 'True Blue Member' he voted 100 percent on FRC Action's Scorecard including votes to repeal and replace Obamacare, deliver long-needed tax cuts that are already providing much needed relief to working families, stand for religious liberty, overturn President Obama's transgender military policy, end the forced partnership between taxpayers and Planned Parenthood, and protect pain capable babies.

"Rep. Johnson deserves praise for his unwavering commitment to stand for life, family, marriage, and religious liberty. Louisianans should be encouraged to know that they have a Member of Congress such as Rep. Johnson who has come alongside other members and our president to begin the work of rebuilding our nation, and protecting the very values that made America great," concluded Perkins.

Rep. Mike Johnson added:

"From the beginning, I have dedicated my career to defending the sanctity of human life and our nation's other founding principles, and I have been honored to carry that mission with me to Congress. Through our efforts, we are beginning to restore key, American values that further support faith, family and freedom. I look forward to continuing the good work we have started and to ensuring these ideals are preserved for generations to come."
