Grading Members of Congress on their votes related to Poverty

Scorecard The Shriver Center has published a report that grades U.S. Representatives and Senators for their votes in 2007 connected to policies related to poverty.  The report is: 2007 Poverty Scorecard: Rating Members of Congress.  According to the press release, "Members of Congress from states with high rates of poverty are less likely to support anti-poverty measures than other members of Congress."  You can also listen to a discussion of the report featuring Sen. John Edwards.
