#1 Congress Approval Rating at 6%, Public Blames GOP09-16-2011, 05:07 PM
So it looks like Congress is hitting all-time lows in approval. A recent poll asked people about congress, with interesting results:
In keeping with Congress' dismal review, just 6 percent of registered voters think most members deserve re-election - the lowest percentage ever in CBS News Polls during the past 20 years, and a lower percentage than the 9 percent who thought so right before the 2010 midterms.
Meanwhile, a new Bloomberg poll demonstrates that the American public blames Republicans far more for Washington's dysfunction:
When asked about who is to blame, 45% said it was congressional Republicans, while 19% blamed congressional Democrats.Originally Posted by Adam Smith - Wealth of Nations
09-16-2011, 05:10 PM“I’ve been a registered Republican for 50 years or more, but I don’t like what they are doing,” said Ray DiPietro, 78, a retiree who lives in Minoa, New York. Republicans “are more concerned about getting Obama out of office than with making things right,” he said.
DiPietro said he gets several e-mails a day from Republican supporters who put Obama down and “tear him apart, and that’s no way for grownups to talk.” The retiree, who supported passage of Obama’s health-care law, said there’s “no way in hell” he will vote for a Republican in 2012.Originally Posted by Adam Smith - Wealth of Nations

Americans don't want us to go further into debt. Obama's approval is 37%. He will be fired next year...and so will any congress critters who don't fall in step with what americans want.
President Obama and many of his fellow Democrats continue to call for higher taxes on the wealthy. And, according to results of a CNN/ORC International Poll released Wednesday, many Americans agree that it's the only way the country can dig itself out of its current economic mess.
In the survey, 63% of the 1,008 people interviewed over the phone said they think the new bipartisan committee in charge of deficit reduction (required under the recent debt ceiling agreement) should raise taxes on higher-income Americans and businesses.
That's just the opinion of the publicOriginally Posted by Adam Smith - Wealth of Nations

Americans do not want to play the blame game. They want action/improvements in the economy and jobs. Obama has failed and so have the Democrats in Congress. They had the WH, the Senate and the House for two years. They never introduced a jobs bill unless you call the give aways to the unions and states for budget deficits job bills.
