Senators and representatives work for the people but you would never know that from the past eight years.

Congressional Quarterly has a searchable and sortable table to illustrate 2008 Party Unity, Presidential Support and Voting Participation scores for individual lawmakers who served in the 110th Congress

It’s a pretty cool little toy although I doubt it will reveal anything that is not already known, and what it does not show is that senate and house Democrats voted with “the president” on the most despicable legislation and only broke with him when it was “safe” to do so, leaving you and me hanging out to dry.

You can find out how your reps and senators are voting on different bills throughout the year by checking in periodically with Thomas.

Use your phones, people. Better yet, send snail mail, and lots of it.
