Government Looking Glass rates your legislators against the issues and positions that you care about.

You chose whether you support or oppose 20 different issues as well as how strongly you care about each issue. Using 100s of existing ratings from a wide variety of special interest groups, the app determines an overall score. You can review the score as well as each of the ratings.

But it doesn't stop there. The Looking Glass also provides a listing of the current legislation going through Congress. You can look at the details of any of the bills as well as easily reach out to your Senators or Congressmen to let them know how you feel.

Culling from a variety of sources, including VoteSmart, ProPublica, Open States, and the Sunlight Foundation, Government Looking Glass provides a clear view of your representatives.

Customer Reviews

Excellent Information & Insights Into My Political Representatives

R Smithers

I found this app to be well designed, intuitive and easy to use - but most important it gave me clear insights into the folks that represent me politically. A few easy steps allowed me to not only identify the issues that are important to me but also to indicate how much importance I assign to each issue. It then automatically mapped to my State and Federal political representatives and showed how closely they reflect my views. Fast, easy and informative!

Plus, another tab shows me pending legislation related to my issues.

The designer has provided an important service in an easy to use and elegant package!

Check it out!
