Americans have a more favorable view of every other industry ó including oil and gas ó than of the federal govern........Only 17 percent of Americans surveyed have a positive view of the federal government.

According to Gallup, this is the first time the federal government has ranked at the bottom of a list of industries, displacing even the oil-and-gas industry, which came in second to last this year.

My guess is that the number of people who think the government should do MORE than they are already doing is closer to 50%.......The reason they are upset with the government is that they donít believe the government is doing enough or that it is going about it the wrong way.
