How Progressive Are Your Members of Congress?

| June 23, 2003

The new web site gives a progressiveness ranking to every member of Congress, based on thousands of congressional votes, on issues from labor to environment, taxes to war, dating all the way back to 1991. The site?s simple interface lets you search for your representative and senators either by entering your zip code or choosing their name from a list, organized both alphabetically and according to their progressive rank. Then you can see how they rate in a specific issue area, or overall. The site provides a dizzying level of detail, including descriptions of every single bill, amendment, and motion taken into account in calculating its rankings. Before voting in the MoveOn primary, stop by to check out how the members of Congress in the race rate.
