Oh, Remember When Congress Hit That All Time Approval Rating Low? Yeah, Guess What
You know what is even less popular thaninterracial marriage? Congress, what because of how they suck times a million. But America continues to hold them in lower and lower regard, according to a new Gallup poll. How bad it is? Oh, how about NINE PERCENT, SINGLE DIGITS, BABY! Whoever had 11/12/13 in the office pool of when Congress would officially become less popular than The Plague is a winner winner chicken dinner. Let's explore some possible reasons, shall we?
This little ditty from Politico, helpfully titled 'Congress Seems To Be Done Legislating For The Year,' might help explain things:
It’s just mid-November, but it’s quickly becoming a reality: Washington could be mostly done making laws for the year.
If it isn’t evident by looking at the thin congressional calendar, top sources in both chambers are downright grim that the final eight weeks in 2013 will produce any legislative breakthroughs, like a broad budget agreement or an immigration deal.
Perhaps most of America is like WHAT THE FUCK CONGRESS YOU HAVE EIGHT GODDAM WEEKS TO WORK AND IF I HAVE TO GO TO A GODFORSAKEN CUBICLE AND PROCESS TPS REPORTS THEN FUCKING GET SOMETHING DONE.
How nice would it be for you, average American, to be able to just say fuck it all, it's mid-November and you don't have to do anything for the rest of the year. Then again, people probably like you, so maybe it's worth it.
While that could be a reason, we really think that twitters like this are much more to blame:

Way to use your grandchild as a political prop, fuck you, Steve King. Of course, Little Wallace will also have access to affordable health care for the rest of his life, which will probably SCAR HIM EVEN MORE.
Nine percent is too damn high.
