That's My Congress Profiles of United States Senators in the 113th Congress.


Methodology
Congressional scorecards at That's My Congress are generated from observations of roll call voting and bill cosponsorship behavior during the 113th Congress.

The Liberal Action Score for a member of Congress is calculated as the percentage of a slate of possible liberal actions that were actually taken by that member. The liberal standard for judging bills is defined according to these conditions:
  • Respect for constitutional protections of American civil liberty
  • Transparency and public access in government
  • Equal treatment of people under law
  • The respect and pursuit of empirical knowledge through support for science and education
  • Protection of the Earth's environmental richness
  • Strengthening of economic opportunity for all
  • Pursuit of peaceful solutions and opposition to militarism in policy


The Conservative Action Score for a member of Congress is calculated as percentage of a slate of possible conservative actions that were actually taken by that member. The conservative standard for judging bills is defined according to these conditions:
  • Disregard for constitutional protections of American civil liberty
  • Secrecy and exclusion of citizens from government
  • Support for discriminatory policy
  • The symbolic denigration and practical undermining of science and education in America
  • Active harm to the environment or passive allowance for environmental destruction
  • Pursuit of further advantage for those in America who are already its richest
  • Dismissal of peaceful alternatives and submission to the interests of the military-industrial complex


The Net Conservative Score for a member is calculated as the Liberal Action Score minus the Conservative Action Score, resulting in a number ranging from -100 (an absolute and total congressional conservative) to +100 (an absolute and total congressional liberal).

If you see no Senators listed within an ideological category, this is not a typographical error. Rather, it indicates that no Senators have met the standard described for that category.
