Labrador Earning Tea Party Backing

For the Boise Tea Party to endorse Raúl Labrador in 2010, the now-freshman congressman had to agree to a few specifics: no more earmarks, no more Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, and no more American involvement in the United Nations. Labrador also backed the flat tax, the gold standard and the election of senators by state legislatures. Only his opposition to federal term limits denied him a perfect score/Elise Viebeck, The Hill. More here.

Question: How would you rate the job Raul Labrador has done during his first two months in office?
