At least the American People agree on something, we disapprove of congress. Today the Gallup Company released the congressional job approval graph (pictured below).
As you can see we have gotten pretty darn low at 12%. My only question is how is something that is so disapproved of, remember 18% approve which means the other 82% disapproval, still in operation? They battle like children. Which ironically is the front cover of Bloomberg business week in which they are mocked for acting like children.
I find it rather funny that as much as Americans disagree on issues from abortion to the president we still allow the government that serves us to operate in a fashion we disapprove of. Here is another graph from the Gallup people… This dislike of congress even transcends party lines! OMG the humanity! We agree on something! I’m so happy! Whats even funnier is we have agreed on this since 2011. Did we hear the presidents talk about this during the debates? No! why would they?
