U.S. News - Politicians

I don't think there has ever been so much dissatisfaction with our political leaders as there is now. President Obama's ratings are low, but the rating for Congress is abysmal. Congress has a disapproval rating of over 75%! With such high dissatisfaction you would think there would be a huge "throw the bums out" movement, but there isn't. It's as if the disapproval has produced apathy and not action. I thinks it's because people feel that no matter which political party is in power, nothing actually changes. So why bother voting? Unfortunately, I agree to some extent. It does feel as if it does not matter which party is in power. I also am starting to think that it won't matter anyway. We have dug such a big hole with our debt and unfunded liabilities that it will not matter which party gets into power. It is like being on the Titanic after it hit the iceberg. You know that it is going to sink, so does it matter who is at the helm?

What do you think?
