Congressional Public Rating

|At this time the public approval rating for the Congress is below 10%. Problem. Almost all voters say that their 3 elected reps and senators should be re-elected. Why are the other 432 so bad that they should be booted? Just one of many, many examples as to why the Congressional approval is so low. Current bill going thru Senate and House links payroll tax cut extension AND oil pipeline from Canada. Just defeated in the House by the Tea Party adherents. Where the heck is the connection? Oh, only politics as usual. Hopefully soon the Congressional approval rating will be below zero!|
