    Does anyone have the link to check the House, Senate, Reps, Congress, President's voting records on policies, laws, bills, etc. as to how these politicians actually vote? Did I miss anyone?

    I always hear people say, "Check so and so's voting record, he/she always votes for ________ or votes against________."

    "Check their voting record."


    Ok, how and where?:confused::confused::confused:


    People always say this party is for ________ and that party is for ___________, but if you, "Check their voting record on policies it's not necessarily true."

    All politicians are liars but the people vote for them blindly because they don't know where to look.;)


    Ok, where do we look?:D

    I went to senate.gov first. I found the link to Obama's, but not McCain's.

    Found this so far:

    How to . . . find out about congressional votes
    All voting in Congress is a matter of public record. However, not all floor votes are roll call votes. There are voice votes (“aye” or “no”) and division or standing votes (where the presiding officer counts Members), and these types of votes do not indicate by name how a Member voted.








    It's a start, thanks..:thumbup:




    But for the most part many of us are still:blind:
