    That 1913 vote would be scored as the conservative position, just fyi, due to the left right axis on that issue at that time. It was a "fiscal responsibility" vote.

    Remember to not look at those old votes through the prism of today's politics, because it'll warp what was the actual spectrum.

      George Norris and Robert La Follette on the right wing?  But your broader point is worth remembering.

        The position that legislators take when voting for or against a piece of legislation is also normally taken into consideration.
