3 Times As Many Americans Supported King George During Revolutionary War Than Support Congress Today

When Congress’ approval rating was in the double-digits, polls showed that it was less popular among the American public than cockroaches, lice, root canals, colonoscopies, traffic jams, used car salesmen, Genghis Khan, Communism, North Korea, BP during the Gulf Oil Spill, Nixon during Watergate or King George during the American Revolution.

An October poll by Public Policy Polling showed that Congress is less popular among the American people than zombies, witches, dog poop, potholes, toenail fungus and hemorrhoids. That was when Congress’ approval rating was 8%.

A new Economist/ poll shows that Congress has hit an all-time low: only 6% of the American public approves of Congress.

How would we be as screwed up as we are today if we hadn't separated from Great Britain?

Who in the hell are the 6%?? I think someone is lying. And further, from that poll, it seems that not too many people would be all that upset if we DID go to D.C and start yanking those thieves out of their cushy offices, with their 70-100 person staff, and march 'em outside for an appointment with destiny. We wouldn't even be able to hear the protestations of 6 out of a hundred people (being drowned out by the wild cheering of the other 94). I only have enough rope for about 20. I'm going to need some help.

Yes I detest Congress. Both sides are just enriching themselves and could care less about anything but keeping office.

They fund Obama as if he were GOP. They do not impeach no. They attack the only good people the Tea Party.

I highly disapprove. They stink.

Well for one thing we would have had slavery longer since it was forced on the colonies, according to Mr. Tom Jefferson. And personally, I like coffee much more than tea.
