Sanders vs. Clinton in Congress

Huffington Post - A 2005 analysis of legislative data revealed that [Sanders] had passed more amendments in the House than any other Member of Congress over a ten-year period. In 2005, Rolling Stone called him the “amendment king.” But as Politifact notes: “In comparison, Hillary Clinton passed zero roll call amendments during her tenure as a senator from New York from 2001-09.” Also from Politifact: “Out of 419 amendments Sanders sponsored over his 25 years in Congress, 90 passed, 21 of them by roll call votes.”
