Ron Paul, Mayor Bloomberg's Groups To Start Assigning Grades To Name And Shame LawmakersSubmitted by bobbyw24 on Sat, 04/20/2013 - 14:39
When Ron Paul officially launched his new think tank Wednesday, the former Texas congressman also introduced a new ranking system for lawmakers based on their foreign policy votes.
"Everyone does it, and Congressman Paul has always wanted to do it," Daniel McAdams, the head of the newly formed Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, told Whispers.
At the same time, senators were getting graded for the first time by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's gun control group Mayors Against Illegal Guns. The group said it would assign letter grades to lawmakers based on the high-profile gun vote on Wednesday and on most future votes on gun legislation.
