The 2009 House Republican Alliance report card came out today, and my state representatives have lower scores than the temperatures up here:

Rep. James Aguiar | 21% Ranking
Rep. Carol Friedrich | 28% Ranking

Some of the most notorious bills these reps have voted for:

1) The infamous NH “Bathroom Bill”

2) 15% Gas Tax Hike

3) Legalizing Gay Marriage

4) Massive Spending Increases that have given us a soon-to-be $500 million budget deficit. When you read “budget shortfall” from the media types, just know that that means “overspending.”

Note: this list was made available before Marilinda Garcia‘s special election primary win on March 24, but she carries an A ranking from her previous term in Concord.
