57% Would Like to Replace Entire Congress

• Rasmussen
If they could vote to keep or replace the entire Congress, just 25% of voters nationwide would keep the current batch of legislators. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% would vote to replace the entire Congress and start all over again. Eighteen percent (18%) are not sure how they would vote. While Democrats have become more supportive of the legislators, voters not affiliated with either major party have moved in the opposite direction. Today, 70% of those not affiliated with either major party would vote to replace all of the elected politicians in the House and Senate. That’s up from 62% last year. Fifty-nine percent (59%) now believe that members of Congress are overpaid. That’s up 10 percentage points from last October. Just five percent (5%) think their Congress member is paid too little. Thirty percent (30%) think the pay is about right. One reason for this attitude may be that most voters say they understand the health care legislation bett

 Everyone except Ron Paul, the only honest, patriot left in Congress.

If the entire congress was replaced tomorrow we would end up with the same problem that we have now in a very short time unless the Zionist lobby was dismantelled.  That is what is causing all of the problems with politicians.  There is only a handful that cannot be manipulated by AIPAC! So, first take away AIPAC then replace congress.  Then we'll get somewhere.

Sad to say this wont change anything.Look at our recent election on the day of election some polls at Congressional approval ratings down to 9% yet 96% of incumbents were returned to office.So nothing will change,even the Tea Parties have been now hijacked and attack free speech and commit physical assaults on people as in the recent Houston Tea Party see trinitytexas77 on you tube to see video of this.
