Virginia’s Representatives to 111th Congress Voting Records Reviewed and Scored

The following was complied from information on the blog That’s My Congress “A politically independent journal of the campaigns and legislation of the United States Congress.”

“Progressive Action; support for legislation in the promotion of freedom, knowledge and security. Freedom is achieved when constitutional protections are respected and when people are treated with equality under law. Knowledge is pursued through rigorous support for science and education. Security comes from the protection of environmental resources, the strengthening of economic opportunity for people and the preservation of peace from erosion by wasteful, destructive militarism.”

“Regressive Action; a pattern of legislative behavior that erodes freedom, knowledge and security. When constitutional protections are disregarded, when discrimination under law is fostered, when the pursuit of knowledge is abandoned and science overruled, when wealth for a few matters more than prosperity for all, and when “Yeehaw” becomes the articulation of foreign policy, our nation is headed in a direction that is not only morally wrong but self-destructive.”
