With some in Congress working hard to help the country recover, it is necessary to maintain a scorecard to keep track of legislative activities. Lucky for us, has grades for those elected officials in the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. Here are some samples from website on a few elected officials from Ohio:

...Kilroy voted for
..........The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009- House Version
..........The Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009
..........The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009
..........The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009

On the other hand----

Jean Schmidt (OH-2-R): 0%
Steve Austria (OH-7-R): 20%
