No-brainer o'-the-day. Rasmussen reports:
74% Trust Their Own Economic Judgment More Than Congress'
Three-out-of-four Americans (74%) trust their own judgment more than that of the average member of Congress when it comes to economic issues facing the nation.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 13% trust the average Congress member's judgment more, while 12% are not sure who knows best.
It is perhaps not surprising that 77% of Republicans trust their own judgment more than that of the average member of the Democrat-controlled House and Senate, a view shared by 79% of adults not affiliated with either party. But nearly as many Democrats (69%) agree with them.
So why do we keep giving them our money? Has the time come for a general strike? American Revolution Part Deux? There must be a plan of action lurking in this somewhere. Perhaps we should ask Congressman Barney what he thinks.
And I'm afraid to ask who the 13% are.
