Congress Watch

A PROJECT OF NEBRASKA TAXPAYERS FOR FREEDOM

EXPLANATION & OBJECTIVES:

Nebraska representatives and senators in Washington, D.C. continually debate and vote on bills and resolutions pertaining to many issues of importance to fiscal conservatives.  The Congressional Quarterly,  newspapers, periodicals, and Internet websites record the votes of these elected officials.  We believe our membership and the public are entitled to examine these voting records, in order to form educated opinions about their Capitol Hill representatives.  Too many reps and senators go to great lengths to hide their voting records from their constituents by making excuses and shading the truth about their positions on legislation.  These officials rely on their constituents not discovering roll call votes and their consequences.  Our project instructs our members how to monitor voting records and lobby their Capitol Hill officials.

GENERAL DIRECTIONS:

Diligently keep current on congressman positions and votes.
Note positions and votes especially on current, controversial issues.
Use these positions and votes as a basis upon which to write your opinion/criticism to your rep or senator or to request clarification or additional information from him.
Thank officeholders for their efforts and conservative votes.
Read periodic bulletins sent to NTF by the National Taxpayers Union, based in Washington, D.C. These bulletins, plus bulletins that we download from the Internet and our own research, annotate important bills and resolutions currently pending in the House and Senate.
Use “How to Write Your Congressman” and other NTF outlines to lobby your senators and representatives.
