Approval Ratings and Incumbents

Rassmussen reports:
As members of Congress and the president haggle over ways to reduce the federal budget deficit, ratings for the bicameral legislature have fallen to the lowest level since late 2008.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that nine percent (9%) now say Congress is doing a good or excellent job. Fifty-six percent (56%) rate the Congressional performance as poor. 
Despite the low approval ratings, most members of Congress will be reelected until they resign, die, or are imprisoned.  People hate Congress but can't seem to figure out that they should stop voting for their own lousy Representatives and Senators.

  1. Repeal the 17th Amendment & go back to state legislatures appointing the senators as was intended. It won't solve everything, but it looking at what the 1800s had & what we have now, the old system seemed to work better.
