National Taxpayer Union Scorecard

The National Taxpayers Union (NTU) recently unveiled their Congressional ratings for the first session of the 110th Congress.  They derive “ratings” by measuring the strength of support for reducing spending and regulation and opposing higher taxes. The higher the score, the better.  Interestingly enough, no single legislator has scored a perfect 100 in the several years NTU has been conducting its scorecard.  Between 2006 and 2007, the average "Taxpayer Score" in the House fell from 39 percent to 35 percent.    While the Senate's average plummeted by 11 points, from 48 percent to 37 percent.
