McHenry = RINO

Between McHenry-Burr-McCory NC district 10 doesn't have a chance in hell

Steve Daines: So far, More of the Same

Well, I'm right yet again... From Montana with love, we unfortunately have another DIRC ( Democrat in Republican Clothing ) succeeding another DIRC, i.e. Rehberg. Daines just loves to parade his generational heritage because he's basically an ignorant traitor of the US Constitution and thereby hopes to continue conning Montana's electorate.

I think your title is misleading

I was thinking this was about whether what they voted was constitutional or not. Also, why only key votes? Why not all votes? While I do appreciate the list, I'd rather see something more comprehensive then based on key/hand-picked votes. Interestingly based on whatever their criteria I have the best Congressman in my state for the most recent 10 key votes as listed in the pdf file on the site link.

I added in the...

I added in the highest ranking Democrat and lowest ranking Republican.

Boehner is my con-man

here in the 8th district of Ohio. Ain't no way Johnny is 53%. I would score him at maybe -53%. Effing weasel!

Washington sucks!!!

Why do I love this place so much?

I mean, I know my Senators meld into one each night to become "Supernanny", but? Apparently our "line in the sand" is about 26%.

94% for

Rand because they think:

He should have voted for MANDATORY federal requirement on the states to label GMO's.

How is mandatory federal labeling requirement pro Constitution?

Edit: read that wrong it was for permitting states to require mandatory GMO labeling. That's really ridiculous in any case because states should already be able to do that kind of. I severely disagree with states requiring mandatory labeling. That's an iffy vote on whether it's "Constitutional" or not. I probably would have come down on it like he did regardless.

He should have voted against Term Limits.
Wut?

He should have voted against a free trade agreement.
Huh?

I agree....

I agree that it's VERY important to review the actual votes that these rankings were based off, more so than the actual percentage rankings.

Regarding term limits, wouldn't that require a constitutional amendment since it would be restructuring the way our government is elected?

Good point Rob

I hadn't thought of that. I guess i can understand the decisions to rank them as such in some ways, but I still pretty much fall in line with the decisions he made on those specific cases.

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.

Time for NH to give Jean Shaheen the boot!

It's a shame that the live free or die state sends that whack job to Washington.

I wonder whether my own dear senator Pocahontas Warren wears her 0% Constitution-hating score with pride!

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.

Kentucky and Texas tops for the Constitution?

There's a problem with these lists in that the organization's biases are going to be reflected in the supposedly pro-Constitution votes.

Texas competes with California and New York for most totalitarian state government, interfering with every aspect of family life. Hard to imagine that its federal delegation is utterly the opposite of the state legislature.

What we need is an online tool that lets the user vote on all the bills, then matches their results to all the senators and representatives.

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.

Biased toward Republicans and agaisnt the Constitution.

Ron Paul only made votes that were constitutional.

My Congressman never made a vote that upheld and defended the Constitution.

How many on this list voted for the wars and war funding, NDAA, Patriot Actm, NSA expansion and Medicaide prescriptions.

Free includes debt-free!

A score of less than 80%

A score of less than 80% should qualify for unemployment, less than 50% should be imprisoned. Less than 25% should be a capital offense...

my line in the sand is 95%
