Let’s face it, everyone hates Congress. Or virtually everyone. And it seems like everyone especially hates Republicans in Congress – especially Republicans.
“You guys aren’t fighting hard enough.” “You won’t stand up to Obama.” “You guys aren’t getting anything done.” “It really doesn’t matter whether Republicans or Democrats control Congress – nothing changes.”
There’s a tremendous amount of frustration out there. It at least partly explains the popularity of “outside” candidates like Donald Trump and Ben Carson and Carley Fiorina on the Republican side. And socialist Bernie Sanders on the Democrat side.
