Who's Liberal or Conservative in Congress?

How conservative or liberal is your Senator or House Representative? National Journal has released its 2005 Congressional Vote Ratings. According to the website:
Since 1981, National Journal's annual vote ratings have defined where members of Congress have stood ideologically in each chamber. The ratings rank lawmakers on how they vote relative to each other on a conservative-to-liberal scale in both the Senate and the House. The scores are based on the members' votes in three areas: economic issues, social issues, and foreign policy.
The ratings can be browsed or searched in a variety of ways.
