Rating Congress on Poverty

The Shriver Center has released a report on poverty legislation that Congress has considered this session and graded both senators and representatives on how they voted and dealt with the legislation. Thanks to astrogirl for finding this. Why am I not surprised that while Wyden received an A, Smith earned only a C? Even less surprising is that while all of the Democratic House members from Oregon received A+'s, our only GOP rep (Walden) received a C. I wonder if his constituents know how well he is looking out for them.

Read the report when you get a chance.And here is the rest of it.
