Minnesota Congressman John Kline cast every vote he could last year.
A news release today from the 2nd District Republican said that he was one of just 12 members of the 435-person U.S. House of Representatives who did not miss a vote in 2011. That's 948 recorded votes. It's also Kline's fourth time for a perfect voting record. He also did it in 2004, 2005 and 2006.
Kline is serving his fifth term. He is the chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee, and serves on the House Armed Services Committee.
