Kind makes top 10 list of most bipartisan House members



Can’t they all just get along?  Americans complain that politics gets more nasty and negative every year. 

La Crosse Democrat Ron Kind, who’s in his 25th year in Congress, says members who believe in bipartisanship are leaving, because politics resembles a “blood sport.”    

Kind just made the top 10 for most bipartisan members of the House, according to a scorecard from the Lugar Center, a government watchdog group. 

The center rated Kind the most bipartisan member of the Wisconsin delegation, and 7th best overall.

They rate Senators, too.  Most bipartisan was Republican Susan Collins of Maine.  Bottom of the list…Bernie Sanders. 

Chuck Grassley and Amy Klobuchar rank in the top 25.  Tammy Baldwin was number 41, and Ron Johnson was at number 60.     

Only one other Democrat in the house, from New Jersey, ranks higher than Kind.  The bottom 20 on the House list includes Liz Cheney, Adam Schiff, Steve Scalise, Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar, and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez.
