Reading the Scorecard

The National Committee legislative staff has identified votes in the 116th Congress (2019-2020) on issues it believes to be of importance to seniors as well as all Americans. This list is not intended to be a complete account of all the votes and activities of U.S. Representatives and Senators, but it is instructive regarding earned benefits.

Here is how to use the Congressional Scorecard:

  • First, locate your State, then your Congressional District (CD), where you will see the name of your U.S. Representative.
  • Next, locate your two U.S. Senators shown at the bottom of your State’s Scorecard section.
  • Listed to the right of all their names are how they cast their votes on key bills, which are listed at the top of the page. Refer to list of “Votes Cast” to find the title of the bill, how each bill could impact your earned benefits and the National Committee’s position.
