On taxpayer issues, Senator Clinton scores only 9 percent on the National Taxpayers Union rating of Congress.
The Cato Institute noted that this included Clinton calling for higher taxes on wealthier Americans, demonstrating her leftist bias against this investor class driving the economy.
In the 108th Congress she introduced 211 bills to increase spending -- more than any other senator -- and only three bills to cut spending.
David Boaz, executive vice president for Cato complained today: "She's still for more taxes, more spending and more regulation."
John Spencer doesn't share this article's liberal concerns -- or agree that Clinton has found any ideological center -- but it shows her hypocritical pandering.
The Cato Institute further noted that she is too caught up in being everything for everybody to sit in the U.S. Senate.
Clinton's total spending increases add up to $615 billion.
This is a "tax and spend" liberal with no focus on New York and her eyes only on a national prize.

John Spencer understands that the politicization of foreign policy doesn't help anyone. When it comes to foreign policy and national defense, Hillary Clinton only understands how to help herself and serve her political ambitions.
America witnessed this self-serving demonstration by Senator Clinton last week when she shamefully attacked Donald Rumsfeld.
Clinton was politicizing foreign policy, the cardinal sin in Congress.
Senator Clinton's critique of Rumsfeld was motivated by politics, another wretched game of "triangulation" by this liberal Democrat.

The poll shows her vulnerable against Republicans in New York -- and Al Gore!!!
In prospective 2008 presidential races, Siena found that former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and Senator John McCain would both beat either Senator Hillary Clinton or former Vice President Al Gore.
Giuliani beats Clinton 48-42 percent and Gore 48-44 percent. McCain top Clinton 46-42 percent and Gore 47-44 percent.
Senator Clinton can try but she hasn't been able to widen her margin against Republicans.
