|With the end of the congressional term, a new "Congressional Report Card for the 99%" grades lawmakers on a series of bills that either "feather the nest of America's most affluent" or "enhance economic opportunities of our 99 percent." The report card, by the Institute for Policy Studies, assigns each lawmaker a grade "A+" through "F" and gives each state a GPA. The group notes "Part of what makes this report interesting is that not all Democrats rate so great, and not all Republicans are so terrible...
Among the findings:
"Republicans dominate the report card's 'dishonor roll.' They make up the entire list of the 48 representatives and 11 senators with an 'F' grade.
"Within each chamber of Congress, Republicans orient themselves much closer to a strong '1 percent friendly' agenda than Democrats orient themselves to a strong '99 percent friendly' agenda."
