Not a surprise...

According to McClatchy, a majority of Americans say that the current Congress is the worst ever in their lifetimes. And 3 out of 4 Americans say that Congress has done nothing about this nation's problems. Well, duh! That's because they've been extremely busy handing over public resources and assets to the very rich and the corporate elite. Congress just can't redistribute the public's wealth to the richest folks and their Wall Street cronies fast enough!

And besides, lining up their future positions in industry and/or amassing campaign funds is also very time-consuming. This leaves them with little time for actually tending to the nation's pressing business. Things like infrastructure, education, stopping corporations from exporting jobs to the third world, help for the unemployed and hungry - you know, little things like that. What, did you actually think they worked for you?? Honey, we're not even a factor unless there's an impending election!

Oh wrong! Whoever thinks COngress hasn't done anything couldn't be more mistaken. It's just that they've not done anything the 99% want done.
To be truthful, they HAVE done a lot. They've managed to make theri friends quite happy from a wealthier standpoint by ignoring regulating banks, healthcare, Food and Drug, avaiation, military cuts etc. etc.
All the while taking our attention away from the Pipeline, TPP and others.
Small gifts are hyped as monumental accomplishments while the Town Criers continually spew the drek of thier masters telling us how good things really are and how we're bastards for complaining.

Oh yeah. Don't make a mistake about it. Congress has don't things....just nothing for us.

Great post Anna.

I think that the 25% you asked about are the notorious HUA people (head up arse).
