Conservative Magazine Lists Favorite Legislators

Conservative weekly mag Human Events has issued a list of its ten favorite Senators and House members.

Kentucky got no mention on the Senate side, but freshman Congressman Geoff Davis came in at number nine on the House list.

Rep. Davis' strong support for the war and for making the Bush tax cuts permanent make up for his opposition to Social Security personal accounts. As of our last conversation he was not committed to a particular tax reform plan. At the age of 46, Davis will likely be smacking the left down for a long time.

One suggestion, though: Rep. Davis would do well to join Reps. Northup and Lewis on the Republican Study Committee, the group seeking to cut wasteful government spending to finance the Katrina bailout.
