Congress Is Less Popular than Cockroaches, Lice, Root Canals, Colonoscopies, Genghis Khan, Communism, King George
by George Washington
Business Insider notes today:
A June Gallup poll [showed that Congress] had a 10% approval rating [while] and one in March that showed North Korea with a 12% favorability rating among Americans.
We’ve previously documented that the U.S. Congress is less popular among the American people than cockroaches, lice, root canals, colonoscopies, traffic jams, used car salesmen, Genghis Khan, Communism, BP during the Gulf oil spill, Nixon during Watergate or King George during the American Revolution.
Postscript: While some wrongly assume that partisan gridlock is the cause of Congress’ unpopularity, the truth is that there has been bipartisan unity among Congress members in:
Bailing out the fatcats and sticking it to the little guy
Lining their own pockets
Using smoke and mirrors instead of addressing the real problems
And generally acting in an untrustworthy manner
That’s why Congress is so unpopular.
