14 PERCENT APPROVAL RATE FOR CONGRESS
According to the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll, only 14 percent of the American public approves the job that Congress is doing. What in the hell is wrong with these people? Where has this 14 percent been the last few years? Camping out on Mars? Hiding under a rock? Doing a Rip Van Winkle?
Just what accomplishment of Congress do these people approve of? The fact that they have done nothing? Their blockage of every attempt to solve problems? Their failure to come up with any solutions of their own? Their habit of saying “no” to everything? The fact that they almost succeeded in shutting down the government twice in the last six months? Have I left anything out?
Politics has always been a dirty word, but the current Congress has taken Congressional malfeasance to a new low level. What would our elected representatives have to do to win the disapproval of the 14 percent? How could they be any worse than they already are?
