"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

Aggregate Ratings Of Your Congressman's Voting Record

The Hill has launched a new research tool to provide insight into the ideologies and voting records of every member of Congress.

Using scores tagged to each lawmaker by 30 different advocacy organizations, The Hill has created a Lawmaker Ratings service — an easy reference where site visitors can check where elected representatives stand on different issues.

There's a separate page for each of the 100 senators and 435 members of the House of Representatives. On each, The Hill has aggregated all the advocacy organizations' scores. It means people in government and other visitors can see the track records of any member of Congress on 13 broad issues with a one-stop shop at  http://thehill.com/resources/lawmaker-ratings.
If You Aren't Outraged, You Aren't Paying Attention!
