Washington Post Congressional Vote Database

Here's a great link at the Jump to the Washington Post's Congressional vote database. See how your elected officials voted. Do you agree with their vote? Is your district and/or state being well-represented by your elected officials?

If not, vote them out. They are there to represent you, not to disregard your wishes and cast votes contrary to yours.

At the very least, your elected officials should represent how your district or state would vote collectively. If they vote otherwise, they're not doing their job. So fire them! How do you do that? You vote for somebody else. If enough people care and vote this way, eventually, your elected official will have heard his/her constituents loud and clear when you boot their butts out of D.C.
