Congress has lower approval rating than Bush

Who's doing a worse job, President Bush or the Democrat-led U.S. Congress?

A new poll says Congress is scraping the bottom of the barrel, with Bush not far behind.

Can we move the November elections up a bit and get rid all the current incumbents? Seriously, would you miss your congressman or senator?

The Associated Press/Ipsos poll finds just 26 percent of Americans approve of the job being done by Congress under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

Bush's approval rating stands at 34 percent. It's been in the low- to mid-30s for the past couple of years, largely because if the stalemate in Iraq and the non-stop biased reporting by the liberal media.

As for Congress, the Democrats have proven to be just as corrupt and incompetent as the Republicans.

What do the Democrats have to show for 2007 other than a dozen pointless resolutions to stop funding for the war and raising the minimum wage by a few cents?

Did turning control of both houses of Congress over to the Democrats make any difference in your life? Instead of the Republicans robbing you blind, it's the Democrats.

With high energy prices, the housing slump and a volatile stock market, more Americans are worried a bout the economy. Bush's approval for handling the economy was 33 percent, compared with 36 percent last month, according to the poll.

The survey was conducted from Jan. 7-9 and involved telephone interviews with 1,027 adults, according to the AP.
