New York Dems Score Well With Retiree Group

The Alliance for Retired Americans has put out its ratings of members of the House and Senate and the New York delegation, at least the Democrats, scored very well.

The lobbying group rated lawmakers on ten votes cast in 2005 which were important to senior citizens on issues including Medicare, retiree benefits, tax breaks and prescription-drug benefits.

Sens. Hillary Clinton and Charles Schumer scored perfect 100% marks, as did the two Democrats in the Hudson Valley region, Eliot Engel and Nita Lowey.

Republican Sue Kelly put up a zero. For the scores of the entire New York State delegation click here, then click on New York State on the national map.
