Where can I find statistics on each member of Congress and the total amount of funding they vote for? I’m surprised how hard this basic information is to find.
I’ve been googling for an hour and can’t find simple statistics showing how much funding each member of Congress voted to authorize. I’ve looked through plenty of sites, and this information seems non-existent. I’ve tried open-secrets, Five-Thirty-Eight, GovTrack, etc and they have tons of studies on ideology, but no hard numbers.
The reason I’m trying to find this is that I read an article that Sens Hawley and Cotton voted to approve $1 trillion more than Sens Sanders and Warren. I’d like to compare them to other Senators, like Rand, to see how they actually vote vs their rhetoric about being for small government.
I just find it interesting just how hard it is to find out how Washington is spending our money. You’d think this would be more widely available than football stats.
