Report Card

If you ever wanted to check on your senators' and representatives' records on how much or how little they represent the middle class, the good folks at themiddleclass.org have given us a very useful tool. They compiled a report card on all of them. Every senator and every representative now has a performance grade on his record from 2003 to 2007. There is also a percentage ranking of their support of legislation that was intended to benefit the middle class so far this year.

This is an excellent resource to evaluate your representation, or lack thereof, in Babylon on the Potomac. The legislative categories are limited to domestic issues, and apart from trade agreements, don't evaluate their foreign policy positions. We still need to do SOME homework.

So, have a go at it. It's enlightening and interesting. Be a responsible citizen and voter, and check your senators' and representatives' Report Card.

Very good Dave! As far as i'm concerned they all get an F. It is a collective thing. Since Bush, a cluster fu@*
Nothing has been done for the needy, average American's, the middle class, and our America. They all deserve a collective F and the vast majority should pay with their job.
