Another important thing about the Gallup Poll, is how MANY Issues the People are worried about. No wonder this and the former Congress have the lowest ratings in history...they have done NOTHING to fix any of these problems, and seem to be intending to.
They have one job, in their minds and that is opposing Obama and protecting the Super Wealthy...THAT'S IT!
Collect their money and go home...their job is done, so they think!

They have the Majority and thus, the Responsibility, but they certainly aren't living up to it!
THROW THE BUMS OUT!

Ya know, next time I'll press 2, just to let them know I'm against A.C.A., that way Rep. and myself will have a go old fashioned debate..........until he disconnects me.

<quoted text>OT, I do agree with most of what you are saying.
Last evening I recieved a "robo call, stump talk" from Rep."R" DesJarlais. As I was listening to others "bad mouthing" Obama Care, they did ask me a question; "If I had a question....press 1, so I did, next they asked me if I was for the A.C.A. press 1, if I was against it press 2.......so of course I pressed 1.
From then on it was nothing except listening to other people badmouthing ObamaCare with DesJarlais throwing fuel onto the fire as needed.
I finally realized I was wasting the local phone companys "DS0", so I hung up.
Now back to your post; yes we do need to be speaking up to our elected reps.........but first we need to get the right Reps. in place, so they will be listening to us, and not be on a mission to get rid of President Obama, even if it hurts the average American.
No argument there "Dunlapian" !
I think a part of the answer is to get people like "Pete" who is what I would term a reasonable Republican, to lead the way with the Republican representatives, and for folks like us to support folks like him.
For instance, it SEEMS to me that when real facts are placed before the public, they begin to see the common sense in not helping companies to send jobs overseas with tax incentives. "Pete" believes, based on his post that is not enough to stop the outsourcing, but I SUSPECT he doesn't support the tax incentive....so that would be a good place to start finding common ground.
There are more folks like "Pete" out in the real world than this thread would lead us to believe, and less like "Amos" who screams "socialist" at a President who has governed to the right of Nixon and Eisenhower. The hard part is to find the points of agreement and move those forward, and agree to disagree on the points of contention. I think there will be more of the former, if Americans could just get past the screaming !

Nuh_, the exact moment that I hung up was when old Scott stated how he has been trying to strengthen up S.S., but he never stated how he tried this.
Last Congress he was all for raising the age to 72, but I never heard him mention this on the phone, did you?
This guy is a great B.S.er, just like he is with his beautiful female patients, his wife, and all of his constituents.

That's okay though....The Republicans will have the majority in the Senate again one day, and because I am a firm believer that you reap what you sow, the minority can bring their agenda to a halt as well.

The details emerging from Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s murder trial are so gruesome that, based on the descriptions, one would assume they are fictional scenes from a horror movie. However, the reality is that the court case, which continues to expose the details of the alleged murders of at least seven babies, is, according to witness testimony, anything but a concocted tale.

Back in January 2011, Gosnell was charged with eight murders and the Associated Press described him as a doctor who gave abortions to minorities, immigrants and poor women in a “house of horrors” clinic.”

Gosnell has reportedly earned millions of dollars over the span of 30 years, performing as many illegal, late-term abortions as he could, according to prosecutors.

For over two decades…Kermit Gosnell convinced people to snip the necks of the perfectly healthy babies. Several per day. Week after week after week, year after year, baby after baby after baby.

That means this man killed more children in a single month than all the school shootings in the history of America combined, and very few in the media say anything.

But, not a Super Majority...which means they can't pass anything, per the Senate Rules, unless enough Republicans vote with the Democrats to bring the number up to 60 votes, for whatever it is.
The Senate only has 52 Democrats and 1 Independent who usually caucuses with the Democrats, so the Senate has to have , at least, 7 Republicans to vote with them, to pass anything.

Just last week both Republican senators from TN voted WITH Harry Reid to bring his gun control bill to the Senate for debate....that SOMEHOW is bringing Reid's "agenda to a halt"???

That's exactly how our government is designed to work.

When one party pushes through 'their agenda' it is a very dangerous thing...it happened with Bush and crew in the early 2000's and it happened again with Obama in his first two years. It is precisely why we have the onerous Obamacare.

Maybe Henry Ford had the answer to economic growth.
Ford claimed high wages was smart business.When wages are low there is uncertainty in the market place and growth is weak. But when pay is high and steady,Ford asserted,business is more secure because workers earn enough to become good customers.They can afford to buy Model Ts.
Germany's success seems instep with Ford's wisdom while American business and political leaders have dismantled the dynamics of virtuous circle in pursuit of downsizing,off shoring and short term profit and big dividends for there investors.
I appears to me that those in control are fine and doing well and that is what matters so why bother.Why would you bother.
I think things are how they want things to be because they are not that stupid and they are not that nice either.
