US Congress: Why People Hate It So Much

It’s sad to say that the American public has zero trust for their lawmakers. But you can’t blame them since there are lots of political issues that are unsolved until now. But to top it all here are the reason why the public hate the Congress so much.

It’s Too Big With Too Little Accomplishments

House of representatives are composed of 345 members but none of them accomplish much for the country. It’s even hard to recall one of them after the election. The Congress needs to create programs for the people to gain their trust.

Nothing is Done For The Common Good

Government shutdowns are always happening every two years because the Congress is not doing anything to control the countries spending. It only means that government shutdowns are frequent than electing lawmakers. People become the casualties of these shutdowns, that’s why their interest in electing house representatives have reduced for the past years.

It’s Overpaid

The people contest that giving $174,00 per year to policy makers is a way too much. They believe that Congress who are mostly millionaires on their own should only get a salary of $50,00 – $100,000 per year. It’s overspending especially if they’ve done little for the country’s development. The public thinks that paying for the best ice cream maker is more beneficial than paying for these useless lawmakers.

They’re Not Working The Whole Time

The Congress has 137 legislative days but it seems that they’ve accomplish nothing, talk about nothing and spend time for nothing. It’s the most disappointing part to the voting public. Improvement is slow because legislators are becoming career politicians. Working for the people is not the most important thing for them. They’re more concerned on the next party they will attend or the next restaurant they will visit. Politics is bad as a whole but electing a career politician is like a suicide.

They’re Not Good Responders

You can only hope for the best when you write complains address to Congress but it’s disappointing to get zero response. Instead of giving an immediate action, lawmakers are giving you this response letter with no substance at all. It only shows that they’re incompetent.
