The Hill aggregrates lawmaker ratings

The Hill has launched a new research tool to provide insight into the ideologies and voting records of every member of Congress. 
  
Using scores tagged to each lawmaker by 30 different advocacy organizations, The Hill has created a Lawmaker Ratings service — an easy reference where site visitors can check where elected representatives stand on different issues. 
  
There's a separate page for each of the 100 senators and 435 members of the House of Representatives. On each, The Hill has aggregated all the advocacy organizations' scores. It means people in government and other visitors can see the track records of any member of Congress on 13 broad issues with a one-stop shop at thehill.com  . 
  
This reference tool, updated whenever a new member arrives on Capitol Hill or an organization produces a new set of ratings, is available free at thehill.com  .
