  • There Must Be a Democratic Primary Going On or Something

    The National Taxpayers Union released its 2007 “Taxpayer Score” yesterday. The annual NTU rating reflects a congressperson’s commitment to reducing federal spending, taxes, debt and regulation by analyzing every roll call vote affecting fiscal policy (including appropriations, authorization, and tax bills; budget target resolutions; amendments; and certain procedural votes that could affect the burden on taxpayers).

    Comparing 2006 scores to 2007, Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) fell furthest, dropping below 30 of her colleagues to a 3% score. On the House side, indicted Rep. William Jefferson (D-La.) steered the furthest to the left falling below 156 of his fellow House members.
