CCAGW Releases 2007 Congressional Ratings

Washington, D.C. - The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW) today released its 2007 Congressional Ratings. Since 1991, CCAGW has examined roll-call votes to separate the taxpayer advocates in Congress from those who favor wasteful programs and pork-barrel spending.

...........CCAGW used 35 key votes in the Senate, including votes to secure a one-year adjustment for the alternative minimum tax (AMT), ethics and lobbying reform, and earmark-related amendments. The entire Senate had an average rating of 36 percent an 8 point decrease from 2006. Senate Republicans averaged 67 percent; Senate Democrats averaged 5 percent. There were no Taxpayer Super Heroes in the Senate for the second year in a row. However, Sens. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), and John Ensign (R-Nev.) came close with scores of 97 percent. On the other end of the scale, 13 senators, all Democrats, had a zero rating.

...........CCAGW’s website features the complete 2007 Congressional Ratings, including vote descriptions, scorecards for the House and Senate, and averages by chamber, party, and state delegation. Visit http://www.ccagw.org/.

The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste is the lobbying arm of Citizens Against Government Waste, the nation’s largest nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in government.


Arizona McCain ® 100% 88%

Delaware Biden (D) 0% 22%

Illinois Obama (D) 10% 18%
