It’s quite evident that the public is fed up with the partisan politics and petty bickering that have caused Congress over the past three years to be totally unproductive and not responsive to the will of the American people. In fact, the level of disapproval is as bad as you could ever imagine. The approval rating of Congress is at an all-time low. It’s time for members of the House and Senate to wake up, face reality and then get down to work.
We wrote on how poorly the American people rate members of Congress in the Capitol Observations section. But, at press time, there was no indication that the House leadership had taken time to read the poll information. If they did, they have totally ignored what they read. Their performance over the past year reminds me of a spoiled child who doesn’t have a clue how folks in the real world live and simply want their way on every issue. The recent performance by the Republican leadership in the House on the payroll tax issue was as bad as I have ever seen. They showed a total disregard for working men and women in that battle and they lost.
