Telling Index Just Released

Posted on January 14, 2010. Filed under: General Info | Tags: , , |

 The National Republican Trust has just released the “Peolosi Index”, detailing the vote so you can see who stands for big government and who stands in it’s way.

It’s very interesting to see just who may be worthy of retaining their seat and who is not. I agree with their assessment that the most important thing a voter can do is educate themselves.

Here are some of the highlights followed by a link to the actual chart. I urge you to take a look at it.

Highlights of THE PELOSI INDEX include:
(Score = percent of time voting for Pelosi’s agenda)

  1. 226  Democrats received a score of 75% or higherCHART
  2. 150  Democrats received a 100% score by always siding with Pelosi.
  3.   27  Democrats in Districts won by McCain received a score of 75% or higher. CHART
  4.   28  Blue Dog Democrats received a score of 75% or higherCHART
  5.    8  Blue Dog Democrats received a 100% score.
  6.   13  Blue Dogs in Districts won by McCain received a score of 75% or higher.
  7. 135  Republicans received a 0% score having never sided with Pelosi. CHART

Another less known group worth looking into, if you’re into smaller government is Downsize DC. Make sure you read their vision statement.
