Blog Spotlight Rule 22 Most Americans disapprove of Congress and have for a long time. However, today Congress matched its historic best in disappointing US citizens. Gallup released a poll today showing that only 13% of Americans approve of the job Congress is doing (Matching its worst approval ever is a statistic according to Gallup.

We are sure Darrell Issa will also hold a hearing on why the Obama Campaign disconnected the address verification system on donations of less than 200 dollars during his campaign.

When it was over, both candidates had more than a million dollars each for their campaigns.
A war, if you will, of sorts, took place between the two candidates early on. One side wanting to rid itself of a disrespectful incumbent and to replace him with a younger Iraqi war officer. And the other wanting to hold on to a leader who is willing to speak out against an over zealous executive.
They call DC “the Cocoon” for Good Reason, while Americans suffer high unemployment, Home foreclosures, and financial ruin, Members on the Hill fortunes continue to clime at unprecedented rates of return.
