I still am getting email from people angry about the president's response to a reporter earlier this week
when he said most Americans are busy with their lives and don't follow the economy like the professional politicians.
And what a great job the pros have done. Many who contacted me saw that as Washington D.C. arrogance at its finest.
Rasmussen polling numbers came out today showing that there is voter frustration and many feel the politicians in D.C. want our vote but not our opinion.
Those polled said 70% of voters don't care much for government regulation of the economy and think it has a bigger negative impact on small business.
According to the pollster, that number hasn't changed since last year.
And just 23% of Americans are even somewhat confident that U.S. policymakers know what they're doing when it comes to addressing the nation's current economic problems.
Voters have mixed feelings about government regulation of big business, but most feel small businesses are regulated too much.
I feel like government is trying to intrude too much in our lives in everything.
And the problem I and many of think we are having right now is those on the hill want our vote but not our input.
They can't have it both ways.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
