NTU Rates Congress

Like Michael at Monoblogue, I received an email Tuesday from the National Taxpayer’s Union listing their annual ratings for our representatives in Washington. From their report:

Every year National Taxpayers Union (NTU) rates U.S. representatives and Senators on their actual votes—every vote that significantly affects taxes, spending, debt, and regulatory burdens on consumers and taxpayers.

So, how do our representatives in Delaware rate? First, our at-large representative Mike Castle (RINO) gets a C-. According to other data on the NTU’s site, it is his lowest rating since he’s been in DC. My translation of that: he’s been there way too long. The only bright light for Castle is that his fellow RINO in Maryland’s District 1, Wayne Gilchrest,  got a rating lower than he: a D. But Maryland Republicans are making Gilchrest stay home after this election, favoring conservative Andy Harris in their primary this winter. Sadly, the same won’t happen here in the First State.

The ratings with our two senators gets worse. Both Senators Carper (D) and Biden (D) get an F… for we’re freakin’ crazy for sending them to DC in the first place. Alright, I got that off my chest.

It’s a shame that we have no one, yes no one, that I can feel proud to send to DC. They don’t stand for anything I stand for. They spend money that I will never have nor will my kids or grandkids. But hey, who cares? The baby boomers will be gone by the time the bills come in, and Gen-X & Y will be forced to make decisions about budgets and spending that they never would.
