When it comes to saving taxpayer dollars, U.S. Rep. Sam Farr receives low marks, according to a study released Monday by the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste.
Farr, D-Carmel, scored just 5 percent on the group’s annual congressional rating. The score was lower than both the average 9 percent for House Democrats and the average 29 percent for House members.
The group rated 21 key votes in the Senate, including votes to reduce spending in appropriations bills, enact earmark reform and repeal the estate tax. The average Senate score was 44 percent.
