Poll: Job approval for Congress at record low

There are 132 comments on the content.usatoday.com story from Aug 17, 2011, titled Poll: Job approval for Congress at record low. In it, content.usatoday.com reports that:

Americans are fed up with the way Congress does its job, giving lawmakers record low approval ratings in the latest Gallup Poll.

The 13% approval rating in the Gallup survey ties a mark set in December, shortly after voters went to the polls and threw Democrats out of power in the U.S. House and narrowed the party's majority in the U.S. Senate. The rating dropped 5 percentage points since early July.

If the corporations pay enough, you may be right.

But the multi-national corporations, and their tools, the tea-baggers, are setting the economy for a no jobs depression.

Can you imagine working at the following Company? It has a little over 500 employees with the following statistics: 29 have been accused of spouse abuse 7 have been arrested for fraud 19 have been accused of writing bad cheques 117 have bankrupted at least two businesses 3 have been arrested for assault 71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges 8 have been arrested for shop-lifting 21 are current defendants in lawsuits In 1998 alone 84 were stopped for drunk driving Can you guess which organization this is? Give up? It's the 535 members of the United States Congress. The same group that perpetually cranks out hundreds upon hundreds of new laws designed to keep the rest of us in line.
