They get -- and congress totally failing to do its job will also get a write about 900 -- -- they deserve it accorded the latest Rasmussen poll you say -- Scott Rasmussen joins us now.
Christ god I'm I've seen the numbers 5%.
Think -- congress is doing a good or excellent job that's it.
And that's it 69%.
Say they're doing a poor -- -- I know this is going to be hard to believe.
I think those numbers are gonna get worse.
Really the -- yet the reason I say that is we have all this talk about the fiscal cliff negotiations that are going to eliminate this middle class tax hike.
But the fact is payroll taxes are going up if you make 50000 dollars a year you gonna pay a thousand dollars more in taxes.
So when the president and congressional leaders stand up and say we save the world we avoided middle class tax hikes.
And then you look at your paycheck you're gonna realize they talk in a different language in Washington and people get burned.
Now I know you've got a poll on the blame game on gonna put up on the screen now because it's.
I think he says forty -- the senate will blame the Republicans -- we go over the -- 36%.
Will blame the president.
So stop I think -- these.
That's much more -- than I thought I thought Republicans -- overwhelmingly get trashed on this and get old -- Because Republican voters say the president is to blame for everything if their favorite football team lost -- -- the president's also there's a good solid base of Republicans who have a different view.
And -- Republican leaning independents.
By the way think both sides are to blame.
And and -- the cynicism is unbelievable.
You know what I'm right now.
Think their own representative in congress trades votes for cash -- fish don't trust for yet.
They just think there's there's this whole situation -- gotten out of control.
And the reason these guys get reelected in the public view was because the system is rigged to benefit incumbents so there is cynicism.
Piled upon cynicism spending never goes down the last time government spending and America went that was 1954.
Long and people are fed up.
You know it's possible that at some point in the future you can get elected to public office in America by saying I'm gonna -- that because we can't afford.
But it's a long way off I suspect a really a long way off.
Scott I'm terribly sorry I'm out of time I'm gonna get to the stock market because OPEC coming a couple of seconds thank you very much got all good stuff happy new -- -- -- -- -- -- effective.
The call yet.
