Media Proclaimed "Most Productive Congress In History" Earns Worst Approval Rating in History

If your only media outlet is mainstream television then you have probably heard it reported - "This is the most productive congress in American history".

Congress' Job Approval Rating Worst in Gallup History
Thirteen percent approve of the way Congress is handling its job

PRINCETON, NJ -- Americans' assessment of Congress has hit a new low, with 13% saying they approve of the way Congress is handling its job. The 83% disapproval rating is also the worst Gallup has measured in more than 30 years of tracking congressional job performance.
The prior low approval rating for Congress was 14% in July 2008 when the United States was dealing with record-high gas prices and the economy was in recession.
