Interesting Wyo. DC Delegation Facts

Some interesting stuff from Govtrack.us:

  • Barbara Cubin missed 955 of 6432 votes (15%) since Jan 7, 1997 (Very Poor relative to peers). But let us delve into some bits of interesting related info:
    • She is tied for 7th most absent with Rep. Jo Ann Davis (R-VA) who has missed 618 of 4033 votes (15%) since Jan 3, 2001
    • Eni Faleomavaega (Democrat, U.S. Delegate, American Samoa), the  most absent member of the House, missed 123 of 229 votes (54%) since Feb 8, 2007 (Exceedingly Poor relative to peers).
    • John Kerry (D-MA) missed 573 of 3507 votes (16%) since Jan 22, 1997 (Very Poor relative to peers).

I had to bring up the Barbara Cubin info because the way people talk (especially the Wyoming media), you would think that Rep. Cubin was NEVER there. Granted, she is our one vote in the House, and we all know that her husband is in poor health (well, most of us should anyway). Do I like it when she misses a vote (regardless of importance)? No, but I understand. And now we can all rest knowing that others miss more than she does. 😉

Moving along….

If you have done any tracking of the Wyoming Delegates on Gov Track, and are wondering about updating your RSS tracking feed to include Sen. Barrasso, but have been to timid to ask, I e-mailed the webmaster about it.

Right now, Sen. Barrasso is not listed in the database. However, now that the webmaster knows we have a new Senator in Wyoming, I have been assured that the update should hopefully be done sometime this week.
