The Council for Citizens Against Public Waste, a non-partisan watchdog group, has released their latest report card on all of Congress. If you are interested in how your Senator or Representative did or didn't waste all your taxes on worthless shit you can have a look over here
The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste has released its ratings for the 108th Congress, second session. Like failing students hiding their report cards from parents, many members of Congress would rather not have taxpayers reflect on the legislative calamities of 2004. But a full review is essential to hold elected officials accountable for a better performance in 2005.
For the past 16 years, the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW) has tracked roll call votes in Congress to separate the good stewards of taxpayer dollars from the politicians who waste money by voting for new programs and pork-stuffed spending bills. The 2004 Congressional Ratings show that fewer elected officials worked to ease the tax and regulatory burden of a cumbersome, bloated federal government.
In 2004, Congress wasted taxpayer dollars like never before; both Republicans and Democrats are rated at their lowest levels ever. There is, however, a silver lining. In 2003, there were no Taxpayer Super Heroes (a score of 100 percent) either in the House or the Senate. But in 2004, two House members attained Super Hero status: Reps. Tom Feeney (R-Fla.) and Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.). Unfortunately, the good news ends there. There were no Super Heroes in the Senate for the third year in a row. As for Taxpayer Heroes (a score of 80 percent or higher) there 68 in the House in 2003 but only 59 in 2004 a 13 percent drop. In the Senate, the number of Taxpayer Heroes dropped from 11 to 10.
I don't think this is a very surprising finding, but aren't people fed up with these money wasting shitbags yet? Vote them out already!
