American Views On Congress’ Ability To Handle The Economy

A new Rasmussen poll shows something very interesting:

Even as Congress puts the finishing touches on legislation asserting more government control over the U.S. financial industry, most U.S. voters continue to believe the legislators have little idea what they're doing when it comes to the economy.

The latest national telephone survey of Likely Voters finds that just 27% are at least somewhat confident that Congress knows what it’s doing when it comes to addressing current economic problems. An overwhelming majority (72%) are not confident in Congress to address these problems.


Um, okay.  First thought: it is tremendously heartening to see that over 7 out of every 10 Americans see Congress as the idiotic, self-serving, incompetent failures that they are.  Second thought: WHAT IS WRONG WITH 27% OF THIS COUNTRY???

There's my two cents.

I'm a gun-owning, Bible-thumping, bitter clinger conservative in the heartland. You can disagree with me if you want (you do, after all, have a right to be wrong)...just don't be rude or stupid and we'll get along just fine! :)
