Wow!!!  I’ve been looking for something like this for weeks!

OpenCongress is a fabulous data site/blog that provides info on what’s going on in Congress, including bills, senators/reps, and committees.  You can sort the bills by issue, or even by the lobbys that are pushing them.  Maybe OpenCongress’ best feature is the profile page, where you can analyze the records of individuals like Sen Clinton and Sen Obama.

Go play!
