Democrat controlled Congress share the same approval rating as the President

By ALAN FRAM, Associated Press Writer 8 minutes ago

WASHINGTON - People think the Democratic-led Congress is doing just as dreary a job as President Bush , following four months of bitter political standoffs that have seen little progress on Iraq and a host of domestic issues.

The survey found only 35 percent approve of how Congress is handling its job, down 5 percentage points in a month. That gives lawmakers the same bleak approval rating as Bush, who has been mired at about that level since last fall, including his dip to a record low for the AP-Ipsos poll of 32 percent last January.

Democrats agree that the problem is largely Iraq, which has dominated this year‘s session of Congress while producing little more than this month‘s Bush veto of a bill requiring the withdrawal of U.S. troops. It has also overshadowed House-passed bills on stem cell research, student loans and other subjects that the White House opposes, they say.

Rising gasoline prices could also be a factor, lawmakers said.

The survey was taken Monday through Wednesday, before Bush offered to seek compromise with congressional Democrats over a war spending bill setting benchmarks for progress in Iraq.

How could this be?? Now what?

Where's the lower fuel prices Nancy Pelosi and Hilary Clinton promised if they took control of Congress?

This is hilarious, if not also ironic and a bit sad.

Thanks for the post.

Seems a stretch to presume the issue is with the Democrats. My personal dissatisfaction with Congress is focused on the stonewalling by the Republican members who continue to help Bush bend the American public over and ass rape them over this Iraq war funding issue. I would suspect many others who expressed dissatisfaction with Congress feel the same. Jim
