The Next Hurrah has posted a quiz of questions lawmakers – in this case holding federal office – should be able to answer correctly to be fit for the job. I answered 21/25 correctly. One was missed by reading to quickly. The other three were ranges I wasn’t familiar enough with: the benefits of social security for seniors, S&P performance over Bush’s time in office, and the popularity of unions among non-union members.
Give it a try. How did you do?
How would your congressperson do? I have a feeling Keith Ellison (MN CD-5) wouldn’t have any problem with this quiz. Can you say the same about your rep?
