Surprise, Surprise! It does not matter which side of the isle you are on, or if you are right in the middle, you are disgusted with congress. When the American people pay attention to politics, congress tries its very best to put on more than a show than normal. What a sad thing to see. I am almost embarrassed I watch C-Span, though it is the best reality programming on television right now.
If you really need proof that congress is doing horrible, look no further than the most recent Congressional Performance poll by Rasmussen Reports.
“Despite their control of both the House and Senate, Democrats are fairly evenly divided in their views of Congress’ job performance, with 23% who give the legislature good or excellent ratings and 28% who say it’s doing a poor job. A majority of Republicans (64%) and unaffiliated voters (72%) give Congress poor ratings.”
The scariest thing about this poll is that only 19% of Americans feel that congress has done anything to help improve their lives. This means all of the stupid programs that we have been wasting money on have done nothing. This includes the TARP bailout, that other bailout, cash for clunkers, and anything else. These programs have only worked at making the U.S. more in debt. Was Bush the problem? Was Obama the problem? Or… wait for it… Was congress the problem? Nothing a president wants can be done, legally, without congress.
Patriot Act, congress. Cap and Trade, congress. TARP, congress. First, Second, and Third bailout, will be congress.
