Why Americans Hate Congress

Stu Rothenberg: "The media's narrative about Congress is clear: It is unproductive, members care only about getting re-elected and they have failed to do their jobs. So it should come as no surprise that Americans believe Congress has been unproductive, that members don't care about doing the right thing, but only about re-election and Congress is a mess."

"The average voter isn't watching Congress closely enough to know how productive it is or how and why members make the decisions they do, but voters seem to have strong opinions about the legislative branch of government. Where do you think voters get their views about Congress' productivity? How do they understand how members of Congress make decisions on legislation?"

"I have met the enemy and it is us."
