    (F) Many of the Senate Members (mostly republican) are more focus on their political careers, their political ideologies and not with the well being of the American people.

    Congress has acted like a kid given the key to the piggy bank. When called on their irresponsibility, they dismiss it as 'rhetoric'.

    I'd give the House a B- because I think there is more partisianship than in the Senate. I don't want to see a "get even for the past 8 years" mentality.

    The House is worse than the president himself. At least he does have some compassion. I will never support a group of double standard hypocrites that believe in raising taxes on the taxpaying public to clean up their mistakes but don't bother in paying their own tax contributions.
    Grade F

    I am a democrat, but Congress is sent our money like there is no tomorrow. Some of the senators need to remember how sent them to Washington. The 2010 elections could CHANGE the make up again. One big reason is the taxpayer and the gun owners.
    Senator's remember the voters.

    Obama an F-...He has put this nation in serious debt for many years to come. A price that WILL be paid for by our next several generations. We will not see the damage Obama and the Dems. have brought to this nation right away. He'll probably be safely out of office by then and will play his usual blame game on some else. Everything will be Bush's fault and so on. Bush could not of done anything without the help of the House and Senate, (Dems.). The job is NOT being done but, most of America is in a love fest. with Obama and are to blind to see the truth. This nation WILL pay a very high price for ALL of his policies. Please America wake-up.

    It looks like we are heading to a socialist county where leaders just love to talk. I came from a county which was dominated by the communist, and I still recall once a former president said "Don't listen to what they(communists) said, but observe what they do!
    My friends in America, this is wake up call!

    I would give them a grade of c-. Too much political posturing and trying to make up for what democrats think they missed out on the last 8 years. I think we are overspending on all the wrong things and Nancy Pelosi is deeply hurting the country with her vindictive methods of governing. Why not help improve Education NOW and focus on affordable health care. Our country is rapidly loosing ground as a world leader in educated people. So where are the greatest budget cuts happening in every city in the U.S.? Education. I would prefer that stimulus money go to Education to help improve the whole system. If Nancy Pelosi wants to reorganize something, then revamp the Educational system

    D- I consider myself an Independant....Bi-partisian politics to the Socialist/ Democratic party is giving them a blank check to further their big government agenda. Any dissent, such as a "Tea Party" is down played and reported to be just a bunch of racists and hicks that are mis-informed about the policies they oppose.

    Looks like Obama is being graded on a curve. I think it is closer to a D+. Congress is flat failing – a big F. They didn't read their homework!

    An F for failing to hold investigative hearings on Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, two culprits behind the Fannie-mae Freddie-mac meltdown.
