Ever wonder why your state or congressional district gets the shaft rather than 'bridges to nowhere?' Who you should REALLY see if you want to advocate for action? Why do some causes get more attention and resources than others? What The K Street Gang already knows?
Then the Power Rankings are for you. Each member of Congress is rated on 15 power indicators including Position, Influence, Legislative Activity and the "SizzleFizzle" factor [as in, "don't sell the steak, sell the sizzle"]. Not that it will solve all of your problems, but it beats having no map at all.
