Congressional Scorecard

For whatever this is worth...

Late last month, a broad coalition of primarily Hispanic policy and civil rights organizations released their congressional scorecard for the 108th Congress.

According to the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda’s (NHLA) press statement, votes on issues of importance to the Hispanic community improved from previous years with 40 percent of senators and representatives receiving a score of 90 percent or higher. However, 30 percent of legislators received a score below 20 percent. The coalition based scores on votes concerning the nation’s education system, the economy and job development, health care, tax relief for working class families, immigration, and civil rights.

Votes are selected by consensus but not necessarily unanimity among the coalition’s 40 members.

I'll save you the trouble of reading the report and tell you that Democrats get high scores (many of them 100%) and Republicans get low scores. This is further proof that so-called Latino leaders are out of touch.

You have a great blog. You should post your thoughts about why your think Hispanics who are polled lean left. Take that same poll in Miami and you'd have the opposite effect. In fact, Gallup, Harris, USA Today routinely avoid polls in South Florida since its so heavily anti-Castro and Pro Republican. I have posted many pieces about Castro on my blog. The hate mail I got is astounding. The left lionize and love this man. Just like mis esposa dice, 'Mala Basura no Muerta' I'm going to link your blog on mine. I hope W continues to win latino voters as they see that the party of the right really represents issues cierce de corozones de latinos. Que tenga buen dia.
