Why Americans Hate Their Congress

This might be a teachable moment for students. It would be good to ask them (or your friends): “Would you replace YOUR Member of Congress?” Chances are fair they’ll say no, since their Representative has been in elected in the past few years.

Then ask them why polls on the approval of Congress don’t seem to translate into rejection of particular Members of Congress. I don’t have a good answer to this question, but it seems worth exploring.
