What's Your 2011 Senate ACU Rating?

Ever wanted to know how conservative you are? Every year, the American Conservative Union prominently rates the folks in Congress. This quiz scores you according to their criteria for senators in 2011. This quiz is not for anybody; it asks about specific legislation, so you will have to be somewhat familiar with Congressional debates over the issues in 2011.

This quiz is part of the Pelta Quiz series testing how readers would score as Senators and representatives according to different interest group ratings. I am not affiliated with any of said groups.
