Cooper Only Went Half the Way on Middle Class Legislation in 2007 released its report cards for our federal elected representatives this week on their performance on legislation that is either for or against middle class growth. Since there is no middle ground for Republicans, I expected our Tennessee Senators to fail (and at less than 20% of pro-middle class legislation voted for so far, it looks like Bob Corker is locked in to fail again this year).

However, I would expect better from Democrats like U.S. Representative Jim Cooper. Yet, in 2007, Mr. Cooper only voted for middle class bills half the time (getting himself graded a "C"). A list of issue areas with links to bills and Mr. Cooper's voting record on middle class bills back to 2003 after the jump.
