Making Data More Accessible

Monitoring how my house or senate rep voted on current or past issues that I care for

The idea: Have a small computer application developed similar to weather or stock report monitor that runs in the system tray that would constantly monitor voting statistics from the house and the senate. This application could be personalized by selecting your congressman and senators by entering your zipcode. It would also allow you on the ongoing basis to select the important issues (important issues for you) from the house and the senate calendar (and marking which result you're hoping for) and soon after the vote results are available, it would popup a window with the voting result plus how your own house or senate rep voted on the issue that's important to you. You could also have an option to do a quick statistics on how your house and senate reps voted on the important issues in the last 12-24 months.
