WASHINGTON, March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- From the ongoing fiscal standoff to key White House appointments, more than ever Washington is deferring critical decisions and waiting for action from the 'world's deliberative body' also known as the United States Senate.

But how well do Americans really know the members of the upper house of Congress?

A new InfoGraphic out today from Cassidy & Associates, This is Your Senate, takes a closer look with information like who gets the most face time on Sundays to a historic rise in power for women and the most progressive and conservative members. (

"With Congress debating crucial taxpayer dollar decisions, it's important to have the fullest picture of the background and influences of the people making those decisions," Cassidy & Associates CEO Gerry Cassidy said at the release of the infographic.

The Cassidy InfoGraphic pulls together, for the first time, information gathered from nonpartisan online resources and Capitol Hill publications.

Cassidy added, "From businesses to nonprofits, managing your Washington risk has never been more important and the only successful way to do that is to be fully engaged in the public policy process."

The InfoGraphic is part of Cassidy's online digital campaign, The Determined Difference, which includes episodic online videos, issue InfoGraphics and other resources demonstrating the breadth of experience and capabilities of the firm's public policy experts.
