    Appears that everyone is "throwing seniors under the bus."

    Saw absolutely no mention of seniors/social safety net issues listed.  [unless I overlooked it]

    Including, among the 14 subgroups under "Family and Children."  I worry that this is just the tip of the iceberg.

    Here we're been though a couple of years of nothing but talk of fiscal crises and "entitlement reform," yet VoteSmart doesn't even think that entitlement reform/cuts merit any mention?  [Let's not forget that there have been many cuts to Medicare already.  Most not directing hurting the seniors' bottom line, but there should be a record of them, for Pete's Sake.]

    More to the point, I wonder if lawmakers object to having their votes on these issues tracked  and listed here.  This is very troublesome.
