Congressional Scorecard

The Secular Coalition for America recently released a scorecard rating our elected officials on a number of issues relevant to the non-believing community. Most of them are relating to judicial nominations for reasons explained on the webpage.

Says the SCA:

In the House, only seven members (less than 2%) of Congress earned a perfect score of 100%:

  • Earl Blumenauer (D-OR)
  • Barney Frank (D-MA)
  • Dennis Kucinich (D-OH)
  • Barbara Lee (D-CA)
  • Jim McDermott (D-WA)
  • Pete Stark (D-CA)
  • Lynn Woolsey (D-CA)

163 Representatives did not vote “correctly” on any of the issues.

There were 18 perfect scores in the Senate. All of them from Democrats as well.

Idaho’s 4 members of Congress voted “incorrectly” on everything. As did Wyoming’s 3.

A nicer version of the scorecard is found on the SCA website, but here are links to PDF files for the Senate and the House of Representatives.

How did your elected officials do?

    i am very proud of our Great State of Illinois. Durbin got 100%, Obama 90%. Not bad. I think that the SCA should have found something other than the DoD funding of the Boy Scouts as an issue for scoring House members…it’s not that I agree, but the negative spin that can be put on voting to keep money from poor little boy scouts was enough to turn many 100% scores into 90% scores.
