Current poll results

From Real Clear Politics:

An average of four polls indicates that 50.8% of those questioned think that the country is on wrong track.  But an average of five polls tracks Obama’s approval rating at 60.8%.  Not sure how people aren’t connecting the two of those numbers yet but I’m confident that it will happen eventually.  Incidentally, as usual, there are a lot of us that disapprove of what Congress is up to.  Not that they seem to care…

Senator Warns White House Will ‘Create Crisis’ and ‘Panic’ to Push Stimulus

Senator Jim DeMint, Republican from South Carolina spoke at the Heritage Foundation on January 27 about the Obama stimulus plan and the previous bailouts that have been forced through Congress.

“I’ve been around long enough to know whenever someone tells me I have to make a decision right now, my response is no,” DeMint said. “That clears it up right away and I think more and more the Bush administration and now this administration knows that they’re not going to get a quick reaction out of Congress unless they create crisis and widespread panic. And that’s going to be their M.O. to get Congress to act.”

I believe there’s a vote on the stimulus plan today…it may not be too late to give your legislator’s office in D.C. a call.

With economy in shambles, Congress gets a raise

“A crumbling economy, more than 2 million constituents who have lost their jobs this year, and congressional demands of CEOs to work for free did not convince lawmakers to freeze their own pay.”

So we’re supposed to believe that the congress with record low approval ratings deserves even more of that substance that they love the most–tax dollars?
