A February Gallup poll showed 90 percent of voters disapproved of the U.S. Congress.
On June 28, the House of Representatives voted, largely along party lines (with 12 Democrats "owned" by the National Rifle Association), to hold the U.S. attorney general in contempt of Congress.
Contempt of Congress? I believe that acknowledges that the attorney general agrees with 90 percent of the rest of us.
Instead of dealing with important issues, such as energy policy, the environment, emigration, or working constructively to improve the lot of the rest of us (the 90 percent), this Congress continues to march along a path dictated to them by wealthy contributors.
Maybe, with this politically motivated move, Congress can get even more than 90 percent of us in contempt, and hopefully, we will all remember this nonsense when we vote this fall.
