Voters Approval of Congress falls to 9%! Lowest Ever Rating!

ARRA News Service - Rasmussen Reports survey issued this morning shows voters giving the Democrat lead Congress with the lowest approval rating of any Congress in history.
Rasmussen Reports: The percentage of voters who give Congress good or excellent ratings has fallen to single digits for the first time in Rasmussen Reports tracking history. This month, just 9% say Congress is doing a good or excellent job. Most voters (52%) say Congress is doing a poor job, which ties the record high in that dubious category. . . . Congress has not received higher than a 15% approval rating since the beginning of 2008. . . . [Read More on Survey]
Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leaders Harry Reid have achieved the most dismal record ever with their liberal agenda and failure to address critical National issues like rising gas prices, homeland security, and the mortgage scandles. Their efforts to prohibit American owned businesses from Drilling for Oil in our own country and their actions restricting electric power companies to the use higher cost natural gas verses using cheap available coal is driving energy costs and gas prices beyond acceptable levels for the American people. It has not gone unnoticed by the public that these leaders have supported trial lawyers over loyal Americans who obeyed the requests of the Federal government to protect America. The public notices the effort of the congressional leaders to promote the bailout of banks and mortgage companies who promoted bad lending practices while ignoring the homeowners who are losing their homes to these same institutions. If democrat senators and reprentatives are concerned about America and regaining the voters' confidence, they should immediately replace Reid and Pelosi as their leaders.

Congress' approval ratings were already abysmal long before the Democrats took over. The percentage was hovering around 15 percent from 2004-2006. Don't just hang it all on Pelosi and Reid, usless as they are.

People are fed up with Congress because this is, by far, the biggest "do nothing" Congress in history. There are scores of Bush appointments that the leadership has bottled up and will not bring to the floor for an up or down vote. Gas prices are raging out of control, and the leadership won't lift a finger to do anything about it because they want to use high gas prices to their advantage in the fall. I could go on...
However, as bad as this "do nothing" Congress is, we will be wishing they were back in the "do nothing" mode after November when they get a filibuster proof majority in the Senate and a Democrat administration in the White House. Our liberties will be a thing of the past.

Regardless of past approval ratings, one cannot argue that this particular Congress has failed to achieve ANYTHING. For example, rather than address our energy crisis with real, tangible solutions, they instead resort to stall tactics while appeasing the far-left base.

No, make no mistake...this particular congress, Democratically-controlled mind you, is more concerned with...with...I'm not actually sure.
