    across all political lines.

    At 13%, Congress' Approval Ties All-Time Low

    Since more restrictions on abortions haven't improved their ratings I suppose it's time for Boehner to introduce a law allowing high school students the right to carry firearms to school.

    Reid and Pelosi are rated the absolute worst, maybe they need another health-bill!

    The partisan extremism in the House and the stalemate in the Senate has resulted in paralyzed government at a time when its action is needed the most.

    Your partisanship is showing through.

    What action is needed?

    Tell me something, why did the Republicans just pass three job bills Obama wanted if there is so much partisan extremism? Why did so many Democrats actually vote against those three bills even though Obama pushed them strongly?

    You betcha. However, if an argument is made which is thougtful and challenges my opinions I will be happy to consider or debate it. My opinion that the Boehner leadership is focused on winning elections (and on his keeping the speakership) has plenty of evidence to support it. Country First? Only in an ends and means way.

    When Pelosi was speaker, Congressional approval was 4% - so this is an improvement! Go Boehner!

    This is the most partisan, inept Congress that I have seen in my lifetime. In a time of severe economic crisis, they put their political agenda above helping Americans
    Who are the 13% who approve

    How about this one, that poll was taken before the bill you are blaming it on passed.

    By the way, since we are talking about being focused on elections instead of actually doing his job, why haven't you started a thread about Obama and his 5 year long campaign?
