Ryan, Sensenbrenner get A grades

The National Taxpayers Union (NTU) handed out report cards a little bit ago, grading members of Congress on their votes affecting taxes, spending, and government regulation.

In all, 427 House votes and 182 Senate votes were included in the tally. The average scores were pitiful: only 37% for the Senate, and 35% for the House of Representatives.

But two Wisconsin Congressmen got top grades. Those were Paul Ryan (85%) and Jim Sensenbrenner (91%). Tom Petri received a B at 70%.

There were no perfect scores.

The rest of Wisconsin's delegation all got Fs, with Sen. Russ Feingold garnering the highest percentage: 12%.
