Sure Congress has an approval rating similiar to STDs...but with re-election rates this high, it makes you wonder. I know...I like my Congressman, but the rest of those guys are a bunch of idiots.

The BGOV Barometer shows that 90 percent of House members and 91 percent of senators who sought re-election in 2012 were successful

And only ONE sitting Senator loss re-election ONE. Scott Brown. ONE!!!
