The statistics I read several months ago said only 15% of Americans thought congress did a good job.
And, yet they returned most of them to office..
Incredible absolutely mind boggling..

Truth is, Democrats gained seats in both the House and Senate thus bringing increased sanity and adulthood to both Houses of Congress.

Why more crazy Republicans and Teapublicans weren't booted is due to Republican voters and in large part to gerrymandering and the Citizen's United ruling which allowed unlimited money into our system.

But don't fret Bubba131, in 2014 the Democrats are slated to gain more House seats and of course, win both houses and the WH in 2016 so things are looking up!

Gerrymandering districts and allowing elected officials to draw their own districts are the very reason change is almost impossible this day and time. Today's politics allows you to only answer to your polarized district and not to a cross section of the country. It allows for a very small vocal extreme group to dictate your voting. Doing what's best for the country is a lost mission for elected officials.

Of course the democrats will gain more seats.. thats a given so long as the voters vote for whatever party gives them more free stuff from the treasury. Food stamps, help with rent and utilities,cell phones and other freebies....
The average democratic voter is MUCH more concerned with freebies than the nations financial welfare.

Well, looks like the non-workers will get another year to leach. Nice that Congress got their pay raise though. I mean, they are doing such a GREAT job right now. They even came in early today, 11:00 a.m. Wow, some of them probably even had to set their alarm clocks.

Until you unvote your pay raise I try to embarrass you as much as possible. By voting for someone else I will not fix a thing.
