Would 9% be acceptable to you?
Well, if only 9% of tax returns were paid out - would you be happy?
If only 9% of the doctors did their job well - would you accept that?
If you had a company of 100 employees, and only 9 did a good job - would you fire anyone?
Why do I bring this up?
According to Rassmussen polls, the current congressional approval rating is 9%.
I say again, 9%.
Is 9% acceptable? I say NO!
If 91% of the people polled think that Congress is doing a bad job, then why do these individuals still continue to hold their respective positions?
Do these poll participants think their congressman is " the good one" and all the other ones are
" the bad ones"?
Probably. This why I built this blog ( Thanks James O ). I need new leadership.
I think they all suck. They are all part of the problem. The system is sound. The people doing the jobs are screwed up.
Here's a clue to the representatives: Do what the people ask you to do! Period.
Quit doing things that only help your own district.
Quit earmarking money for your own pet projects that only serve to make a name for yourselves. ( I.e. - metro rail projects ).
Quit blocking legislation voted for and approved by the people. ( Prop 200 in AZ).
Quit pandering and cowtowing to slack-jawed special interests. ( MoveOn.org)
Drill for OIL HERE AND NOW! ( duh!)
In short, JUST QUIT. Seriously, do all of us a favor. Quit. Imagine the respect you would get when one day you just came out and stated on the capitol steps, " I'm out, I've got nothing".
YOU, yes You, could be the one congressperson who would be telling the truth.
Because, really - you have nothing to offer our nation at this point. If you are a senator or rep serving in the current Congress, you have nothing. You have proven nothing. You have wasted time and money in securing your own interests and future wealth. Obviously, you have either done a bad job ( 9% ) or you have failed miserably to communicate what exactly it is you have accomplished. Which is simply put - nothing. nada. zip. zero.
Do you want to know what this Congress has produced since taking over in Nov 2006?
HHHMMMMM????? I'm waiting.
Here, let me help you - They redesigned the freaking lunchroom at the Capitol building. Yep, that is it. Anything they have tried to pass has failed by either vote or veto.
So, I ask again. Is 9% Acceptable.
I'm going to drive home now. I hope that more than 9% of the drivers out there know how to drive.
